The abandoned prison building, built in 1853 in the village of Yelatma (Ryazan region), is planned to be made a public and cultural space that will be of interest to tourists.

"On December 4, a working curatorial trip of the initiative group to Yelatma took place in order to explore the territory of the prison castle and find ideas for revitalizing the territory, creating another public space and an object of tourist display," the Tourist Information Center of the Ryazan region reported on its website.

Today, everyone who is not indifferent can take part in the fate of the castle, the message says.

This building of the XIX century served as a prison until the middle of the last century, there were common cells for 58 people and two single ones. Then it was converted and the premises were used as housing and educational laboratories and workshops of the rural vocational school, the tourist center noted. For a while there was a sawmill on the castle grounds.

At the moment, the building is owned by the historian, local historian Tatyana Alimova, who is also the author of another project - "House with character". It provides for the transformation of an ancient merchant's mansion

Maria Popova, a well-known entrepreneur and philanthropist of the early 20th century in Yelatma, entered the public, museum, and exhibition space.
