That is, two years later, we will celebrate the millennium after its "birth". But here's the question: does not fail if an architectural complex of the ground after how opposite it, across the road, yet another otgrohayut the planned ten-VIP-bungalow for 200 apartments. According to information which increasingly appears in the media, the first tower could collapse under the which now flows underground is a creek, or bottled whole lake. Water, this was the result of improper construction areas around the architectural ensemble. Experts say that over the past few years the water level rose under him nearly two meters. But if they start and yet another "brick" to build in dangerous proximity to the monument, then chances survive in the Hagia Sophia will not do. According to the hydrogeologist Victor Neshvayko, none of this would be, whether modern architects developers and lovers of history and the patriots of the city. "All the problems with the accumulation of water under some buildings Sofia - neither more nor less than gross miscalculations of those who planned modern buildings around the cathedral: they pit deeper than it should be dug, there is no foundation so cheated, not the tube diameter and quality of paved, etc. As a result a small artificial cave, gradually fills with water, which, in turn, looking for a way and it could undercut the foundation of the same bell, - says geologist, adding that any new building near the shrine - a threat to its existence as such.

He is in private conversation, and persuaded the chief to refuse the demolition of the temple. Today, all shout loudly about the crisis, but, as history shows, they are crises, with an enviable cycles appear as well as pass. Losing because of sloppiness and greed Hagia Sophia, we make up for the loss of can not, nor be able to explain to posterity, as they were able to prevent this. Having survived the turmoil, the Tatar-Mongol invasion, Uniate, the Bolsheviks and the Nazis, council can not move from its current independence of the architectural delights and so anxious attitude to history.
