House of Culture in the village of Chobruchi
House of Culture
The decision to build a modern House of Culture for 600 seats was made in 1953. It was the first object built after the merger of six small agricultural enterprises of the village of Chobruchi into a single large collective farm. The authors of the project were architects V.P. Alexandrov and I.S. Eltman, as well as D.K. Rodin, who was involved in the design of the pediment and the interior.
The architecture of the facade is typical of the post-war decade. The four-column portico emphasizes the main entrance and is well connected to the side facades. Due to its beauty and exquisite architecture, the House of Culture for many years ranked first in the MSSR at competitions of rural centers of culture.
Immediately after opening on November 4, 1956, the building housed art groups, a library, and a film installation.
Today, the House of Culture, renovated in 2015, remains the center of cultural life of the village. A considerable number of creative groups work here, including the folk vocal and instrumental ensemble “Parusnik” (Sailboat), the orchestra of Moldavian music “Taraf”, the vocal group “Chobruchanka”, etc.
