The purpose of the historical-museum complexes "The Golden Collection" is a spiritual revival of Russia. To achieve this goal, the author of the project offers to build “the Ostrogs*” of Russian culture in the cities and towns of the Russian Federation and in other countries of the world.


All these Ostrogs are going to be called "The Golden Collection". It is going to be a chain of modern multifunctional historical-museum complexes including reconstructed historical territory, modern hotel rooms, parks of culture and recreation parks, sport areas, restaurants and shops.

* The Ostrog – a fortress, built by Russian Cossacks in Siberia, a stronghold of Siberia exploring.

We are going to build the first Ostrog in a Siberian town called Ust-Ilimsk, situated on painterly banks of the Angara-river. Choosing of this place is caused by perfect location.

After Ust-Ilimsk, building of such complexes is planned to start on route of the Great Siberian way (nearby large cities) and cities of other countries. In particular, there are points of joint cooperation projects "The Golden Collection" and "Cultural zone of the Great tea road" on the route "Ulan-Ude - Saint Petersburg".


 Association of these cultural projects can become a powerful impetus to their joint tourism development, in particular, by introducing a zone of Chinese architecture and creation of centers of Chinese medicine. 

All these facts inspired Vladimir Zhurin – a denizen of Siberia. He is brave enough to convey the true spiritual values and culture of the Russian people to the whole world – by the revival of ancient Russian wooden architecture of the XVIII century. That's why, it is the wooden architecture became the basis of the architectural appearance of the historical-museum complex "The Golden Collection".

After Ust-Ilimsk, it is planned to build such complexes nearby the cities, situated on the way of the Trans-Siberian railway. And then – in other countries.

Giving the floor to the architects

According to the architects' calculations, the total area of one historical and museum complex is more than 5 hectares. Each complex is going to include 4 main areas:



Consists of the reconstruction of the historical monument – the Ostrog, with watchtowers and fence, created in the style of old Russian wooden architecture.Along the fortress there are architectural forms of religious wooden architecture of XV-XVIII centuries (churches and temples), all made by legendary masters of ancient architecture.There are also some wooden huts (Russian izba) on the territory of the Ostrog. Living there one can feel the real spirit of that time.Building of the fortress will allow to organize shooting of films and documentaries in future.


Central part of this sector is intended for buildings, designed in style of the late old Russian architecture – the time when such styles as "Baroque", "Modern" and "Classicism" have already appeared in wooden fulfillment. By the way, such architectural styles in wooden fulfillment exist only in Russia. Each house here is going to be a prototype of the famous historical building. Business area will provide wide range of services. There will be a place for a housing sector with classic hotel rooms, a restaurant and a café nearby. A business center and meeting rooms, an office block, shopping arcade and entertainment centre will complete the complex.In this area one can celebrate various holidays, and arrange public concerts.


The place of joyful time spending. It is also expected the organization of the Spa area, children's and youth health camps.
