Charitable bank account opened for reconstruction of Bykhov Castle

Bykhov district executive committee opened a charitable bank account to attract funds for reconstructing Bykhov castle, the national historic and cultural site, the source at the ideology department of the district executive committee informed.

“The state will become the major investor, but it’s important for Bykhov citizens, as well as for our compatriots abroad to have a chance to show their patriotic sentiment and civic duty”, specialists of the district committee told.

Within the frameworks of implementing “Castles of Belarus” State Programme, Br1.5 bln will be provided from the state budget for the castle’s reconstruction. It will be spent for elaboration of design documents, conservation and partial reconstruction of the only Belarusian town-fortress of the XVIIth c. At present examination of the castle’s condition has almost been completed, and the scope of restoration work will be defined.

A number of community work days to clean up the castle’s territory, as well as archeological excavations will be held there in spring. The exhibits to be found will be sent to Bykhov Local Lore Museum for organizing a new exposition.

Two defensive towers and one of the halls (where a temporal historic exposition will take place) are likely to be reconstructed this year. The nearby territory will be improved to host one of concert grounds of the Day of the Belarusian Written Language that will be held in Bykhov on September 1. The restoration and reconstruction of the cultural site will be completed in 2018.
