Another address of destruction
The newspaper Novyny Zakarpattya draws attention to another address of destruction of the historical part of Uzhgorod.
Thus, on Voloshin street (opposite the Roman Catholic Cathedral), they started removing the authentic exquisite stucco on the second floor. Worried residents called the newspaper.
One of the owners of the apartment there assures the journalists that the stucco is being removed from the historic building for restoration purposes, the work has been approved by the relevant services, and the facade will be restore to its authentic form.
The lively discussion of the historic architecture destruction in the city center continues among concerned Uzhgorod residents in the network "Facebook". A representative of the Lviv Academy of Arts Andriy Voznitski says there are two ways for the correct restoration of facades. The first one is the restoration of old elements because they are valuable in themselves. The second one is cleaning the stucco of a centimeter-thick layers of lime or paint, removal of form for complete restoration.
And the architecture service of the city still has not responded. But then again, has anyone noticed its professional decisions over the past few years? - the publication asks a rhetorical question.
