Monuments of culture are of particular value for the history of the country to which they belong. Often they are preserved from ancient times, reaching our time in an unchanged or already restored form. These buildings are symbols of art and part of the history of the state, they embody the bright talents of the creators, showing us all the subtlety of beauty and grandeur. Also to the monuments of culture include finds of archaeologists, drawings of primitive people, ancient hieroglyphics. All this has great historical value.
In Russia there are many cultural monuments preserved from past centuries. The most famous of them can be called the Red Square and the Kremlin in Moscow. It’s great that we strive to preserve the values of the culture of our Motherland, carefully storing monuments, studying their history. This manifests the spirituality and unity of the people.
An excellent example of a monument of culture, majestic and beautiful, you can call the Tsar Bell. The huge bell has a height of more than six meters. It was cast by the order of Empress Anna Ioannovna. The bell was so big and heavy that it could not be lifted, so he stayed in the melting pit. When a fire broke away from the monument a piece. Only a hundred years later this famous monument was raised – today it flaunts in the Moscow Kremlin, causing delight to everyone who sees the Tsar Bell.
The ancient temples and cathedrals are also monuments of Russian culture. The beautiful temple of the Intercession of Our Lady, which was renamed to the Cathedral of St. Basil the Blessed, symbolizes the star of Bethlehem with its six colored domes. The sight of this sacred monument of culture fascinates and causes genuine trembling before the talent of architects who created it.
The preservation of cultural monuments is the task of the whole people. We must study our history, because the attitude towards the past reveals the future of the country. And respect for the ancestors, for their greatest works of art, is a sign of the spiritual flowering of the people.
