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 contemporary architects and developers lovers of history and the patriots of the city. "All the problems with the accumulation of water beneath some buildings Sofia - neither more nor less than those blunders, who planned modern building around the cathedral: they pit deeper What should be dug, there is no foundation so cheated, not the diameter of the tube and quality of paved, etc. As a result a small artificial caves, are gradually filled with water, which, in turn, seeks out and may well be undermining the foundation of the same bell, - says the 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 shout loudly about the crisis, but, as history shows, they are crises, with an enviable cycles as there are, and pass. Losing because of sloppiness greed and Hagia Sophia, we make up for this loss can not, as and will not be able to explain to posterity, as they were able to prevent this. Having survived the turmoil, Tatar-Mongol invasion, Uniate, the Bolsheviks and the Nazis, the cathedral can not move from its current independence of architectural delights, and so anxious attitude to history.
