Chisinau, August 16 /MOLDPRES/- Conservation and restoration works at the tomb of the Macri-Donici families in the village of Dubăsarii Vechi, Criuleni district, are under development, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) announced today.
The restoration was launched thanks to the European Union Confidence-Building Measures program (EU CBM), implemented by UNDP. Tomb is one of the 10 cultural-historical sites on both banks of the Dniester, selected for restoration and conservation, within the cultural heritage component of the EU CBM program.
