Project
Restoration of the family chapel in Gatchina Palace

Category
Best Implemented Restoration Project

About the project
The Temple of the Life-Giving Trinity is the Imperial family chapel located in the Kitchen Square of the Gatchina Palace. This was the first religious building in Gatchina, which has been there since the 18th century. During the reign of Paul the First, they brought relics of the Order of Malta here.
In times of Emperor Nicholas the First, this unit was radically changed by architect Kuzmin.
In 2016, the church was closed for new restoration. The authors of the project restored the icon-stand with its ornamentation and stained-glass windows. In the caissons of the cupola, they discovered the painted cherubs, which was a revelation.  These images were believed to have been lost, but now they have been renovated and are there to see.
