Annunciation Cathedral in Votkinsk

Best Implemented Restoration Project

About the project (provided by the applicant)
The local Orthodox religious organization of the parish of the Annunciation Cathedral, representing the Udmurt Republic of Izhevsk and the Udmurtia Eparchy of the Russian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate).
For many years, the building located at 1 Kirov Street in Votkinsk was in a state of disrepair, characterized by crumbling plaster, faded walls with cracks, and distorted architecture.
The revitalized Annunciation Cathedral now stands as a majestic centerpiece in the heart of Votkinsk. Its outstanding importance in the city’s planning is attributed to its unusually favorable location and substantial architectural mass. Situated in the middle of the traditional pre-factory square typical of Urals factory towns, the cathedral is near the eastern end of the dam.
