Conservation and restoration of the interiors, Church of the Resurrection of Christ in Catherine Palace

Best Implemented Restoration / Reconstruction Project

About the project
In 2019, the Church of the Resurrection of Christ dating back to the 18th century was opened in the museum preserve after a major restoration. Despite the damage caused during war times, the unique ornaments of the church within the Catherine Palace generally survived.

It took 350 experts to recover the historical interior, including gilders, stuccoists, carvers, and painter. In 4 years, they managed to save every surviving decoration element and paintings on the plafonds, as well as to restore icons for the altar screen. The lost fragments were made of wood without any gilding to help visitors tell old elements from the modern ones.
