New Jerusalem to Become Major Exhibition Venue of Moscow Region

The new building of the museum complex New Jerusalem will turn into the main exhibition centre of the Moscow Region.
      Its repository will also become the center for storage of collections of several museums located around Moscow.
      The New Jerusalem Monastery housing the museum is the unique phenomenon in the history of Russian architecture. Its founder Patriarch Nikon (1605-1681) wanted to create near Moscow an image of the Holy Land - "Russian Palestine" - which became a grandiose architectural and landscape complex.
      A new museum building is under construction now, and the museum repository will be ready by the end of 2012. Construction of the new museum building will be completed in 2012, with about a milliard rubles planned to be spent on its construction.
