Restoration Of Spasskaya Tower

The Spasskaya Tower and the Kremlin chiming clock were covered with scaffold until spring. During the winter historical object will undergo restoration.

      It is possible that the president’s New Year’s speech Christmas will be recorded on a different background. Specialists have to restore the brickwork of the Spasskaya Tower and its white stone ornaments. In addition, the Kremlin walls around the tower will be investigated with radars. The repair of the chiming clock will start in the nearest future. The experts will update all four dials, as well as dismantle the clock hands of the main Russian clock to restore them in a workshop.

      According to the experts, “the clock suffers from the effects of the environment most of all and requirs special attention.” The Spasskaya Tower and a part of the Kremlin wall next to it were included in the second stage of scientific and restoration works. The Corner Arsenalnaya and Troitskaya towers have already been restored during the current year, as well as a part of the wall along the Neglinka up to Troitskie Gates. The third stage of restoration will affect the Kremlin walls and towers looking at the Moskva River, including Borovitskaya and Vodovzvodnaya towers.
