Abstract (in English)

The preservation of historical and cultural monuments in our country is a task of great responsibility and complexity, which may be accomplished only based on a thorough examination of their current condition. One of the basic constituents of this process is a comprehensive engineering research, including land measuring, site exploration, basement and foundation inspection, examination and calculation of the bearing structures. Presently, Kreal, a specialized company, carries out a comprehensive examination of the restoration process of the St. Basil Cathedral “ Temple of Blessed Virgin’s Cover on the Ditch” along the above-indicated lines. The work is carried out on the basis on state-of-the art technologies and engineering tools.
