  • In the city of Omsk, with its 300-year history so little at the behest of stupid bureaucrats and mindlessness of the human remains of places whose history not fortunately stopped. and they continue to fill our world wonder of its existence. Lancet towers up. Transitions, Balconies, Scallions da the cupolas. And scientists marveled at people, Zane this church more beautiful Italian villas and pagodas Indian was!-Behold such strings d. Kedrina come on memory, when you see the spectacular St. Nicholas Cossack Cathedral. The ingenious Russian architect Vasily Stasov was the author of the original draft of the church building in Empire style. It now strikes the harmony and beauty of its unique character. It can rightly be called a masterpiece of architecture in Omsk. But few people know what a heavy share of fell upon him, and if not for a public outcry and the culture it would be demolished! In the year 1971 was still cancelled the decision to demolish this unique monument of architecture and witness all the most important historical events in the city of Omsk. From 1921 onwards the Church was deprived of its status, "beheaded"-e. demolished its domes, Bell pereplavili, and in the building for many years housed the different organisations-from 1940-cinema, then kindergarten, offices, etc. The legendary director of the Omsk regional Museum A.f. Palashenkov wrote; " Around created by ... projects (V.p. Stasov-N.l.) buildings are on the Federal State protection. And only we tore the roof with clearly defined dome stasovskogo creations, destroyed on the slim, light the top tiers of the Bell Tower with a beautiful shpilevidnym completion, broke a solemn west entrance etc. But this was not enough for us to ...-to the South and North sides instead of the plaque with the name of the great architect. built two brick toilets. And look at us with great reproach obesslavlennye wall Cossack Cathedral ". And the glory was great-in the Cathedral kept the banner Yermak and numerous military awards and banners of the Omsk Cossack troops here was baptized and hero of the Soviet Union. The Cathedral Karbyshev D.m. existed two parochial schools and an orphanage for orphaned children. during the early 20-th century cathedral in the city's life value was so great, that led to the creation of legends about formation of Omsk, exactly how the Cossack settlements, often repeated in his notes in Omsk on travelers. When you enter under the vaults of St. Nicholas Church, a sense of Holiness and ancient at once takes possession of you on par with admiration his beautiful. But it turns out the temple kept for us another amazing discovery, hidden under the thick layer of its old walls in the Temple now comes repair and restoration and that's in the process of work under the Foundation discovered two bronze age burials., Apparently on a whim, the builders of the temple chose for him a special place-the burial place of the people since ancient times. What puzzles keeps this unique temple we have yet to learn.
