Cultural Heritage Preservation Council at the St. Petersburg City Government has approved today the project for reconstruction of Rogov’s House.

      The house will be restored according to measurements of 2005. Detailed photos of 1927 have also remained. On the place, under which there is a subway part running, nothing can be built - the area will be improved there.  The building will be reconstructed of bricks.

      Let’s remind that on August 26, 2012 a resonant event occurred in St. Petersburg - House of Merchant Rogov in Shcherbakov Lane, for the rescue of which city protectors had been struggling for a few years, was taken down.

      The House of Merchant Rogov was built in 1833 by architect Abraham Melnikov and was a vivid paragon of an early 19th century house in the style of classicism.
