One aspect of good urban planning is the preservation of historic and cultural monuments and the support of the country's architectural heritage. Each city has different planning needs. In some cities it is the protection of the environment, in others it is the protection of history.
While working in Karakol, one of the city planning consultants, Andrei Ivanov, drew attention to the richness of the traditional Russian and Kyrgyz architecture that has survived in Karakol. Mr. Ivanov is a well-known expert on the protection of the historical urban environment in Russia. In his spare time, on weekends, he began photographing and studying the city's historical heritage.
