The Rostov House of Piotr Wrangel will turn into the museum

In Administration of Rostov-on-Don the question of creation of new tourist object – Piotr Wrangel's museum is considered. It is planned that it will be open in the house of the glorified lieutenant general, one of leaders of the White movement. Now the city authorities plan to transfer the building to restoration. Allegedly, works on restoration of the house of Wrangel constructed in 1885 on the project of the architect Nikolay Doroshenko will be complete in 2016.

"Most likely, restoration the investor will be engaged, – the head of administration of Rostov Sergey Gorban declared. – But the city at it rents the building under the museum and will develop the exposition devoted to Wrangel and that historical period there".

According to representatives of the city hall, the new museum not only will allow to increase tourist appeal of the southern capital, but also to attract investors "to creation of objects of cultural and historical heritage".
