The Bell Association

In May 2000, the Memorial Rotunda "Bell of togetherness of three Slavic fraternal peoples" was opened. The opening ceremony was attended by Presidents Vladimir  Putin, Leonid Kuchma, and Alexander Lukashenko. The Bell is located in the grounds of the Orthodox Church of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul.

The Bell Association

The idea of creating a symbol uniting three fraternal peoples belonged to Archbishop of Belgorod and Stary Oskol John and the head of the administration of  Belgorod region E. Savchenko.

The idea was the work of architects V. Pertsev and V. Turchenko. The Rotunda is a construction  of three arches, which are built in a circle and  topped by a dome with an Orthodox cross.

 

Under the dome is the Bell of togetherness representing the three fraternal Nations of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. The words of St. Sergius of Radonezh: "love and unity will save us" are inscribed on the structure.  The middle  area shows four icons by Andrei Rublev: the Holy Trinity St. Sergius of Radonezh, the Grand Prince  Vladimir and the Reverend Euphrosyne of Polotsk.
