      Remains of Biysk Trinity Cathedral Found by Archeologists
      27.11.2008

      Remains of Biysk Trinity Cathedral and a sepulchral vault with tombs
      of the town head and other honorary dwellers have been found during
      archeological diggings in Biysk. The cathedral was exploded in 1934.

      This is where in the 19th century the town dwellers welcomed
      the Great Prince Vladimir Aleksandrovich Romanov, son of the Emperor
      Alexander II. He was passing through Biysk on his way to Gorny Altai,
      to Lake Teletskoye.

      Before the revolution the Cathedral Square was a venue for
      parades; in 1914 a public prayer was held here before a considerable
      part of men from the town were sent to World War I.

      Among the finds there is a zinc coffin, wrought nails and
      staples, metal from the roof of the Trinity Cathedral, forged
      decorative fragments of railing, and remnants of earthenware
      altogether about 180 pieces.
