Sverdlovsk to revive Verkhoturye spiritual center
Regional funds will be used not only to restore the center's structures and surrounding statues, monuments and connecting roads, but also to develop and implement a comprehensive tourism strategy for the building, Oblastnaya Gazeta reports.
As part of Verkhoturye's tourism strategy, the Russian Ministry of Culture plans to use part of the funds to construct hotels, cafes and other retail destinations nearby.
The rehabilitation of Verkhoturye is being overseen by Deputy Prime Minister Valentina Matviyenko, with additional oversight by the Russian Ministry of Economy and the Ministry of State Property, according to Oblastnaya Gazeta.
Today, Verkhoturye is one of the most popular pilgrimage destinations for Orthodox Christians. The area has a number of churches and temples, as well as monasteries for both men and women.
