The head of Kuzbass said about the future of the cultural-educational cluster

The Governor of the Kemerovo region Sergey Tsivilev said in an interview with RIA Novosti on the construction of the cultural-educational cluster in Kemerovo, which will consist of two parts.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin has set the task to create a regional cultural complex that includes branches of well-known institutions, artistic, musical and theatrical educational institutions. Until the end of 2023, such centers should be built in four cities — Vladivostok, Kaliningrad, Novosibirsk and Sevastopol.

"The educational part, we have identified separately, it is built on the same site. A cultural complex is being built on another site. The educational part we placed where we in the Soviet times was a student city, but it is not completely formed, there were a lot of vacant lots. There is part of the buildings of Kemerovo state University, Kuzbass medical University and the Kemerovo state Institute of culture" — said Tsivilev.

According to the Governor, the building of universities scattered over a large area around the vacant lots, garages since the 90-ies, abandoned unfinished since Soviet times, which were in disrepair.

"We're all cleared, everything was removed. The result was a beautiful Playground. And here on this platform we are building from last year of education. Our goal is to make next year. But she's, say, more typical, despite the fact that it has its concert halls, storages, sports venues. In conjunction with the education facilities that we have, it creates big, beautiful student town in Leninsky district of the city of Kemerovo. This, of course, a gift to all our students," said the Governor.

According to the head of Kuzbass, the cultural complex will be modern.

"We started with the fact that drew one of the best foreign companies which started to develop this concept. We also have its own peculiarities, its own climate, all must be considered. So today we drew a concept that will be one large Foundation on the ground floor of which will be technical and auxiliary premises and underground Parking. From the underground Parking you can rise to any level where there are restaurants, Lounges, will have four buildings: the Opera and ballet theatre, branch of the Russian Museum, Kuzbass center for the arts hotel", — said the Governor.
