On June 20 a renovated gallery displaying copies of world’s plastic art masterpieces will open in the International culture museum in Evpatoriya. Among the exhibits displayed in the open-air museum you will find an exact copy of the Statue of Christ the Redeemer that is originally located in Brazil.
