Stained Glass in Sailors' Palace of Culture

Interior of the Sailors' Palace of Culture in Mariupol. The current state of the stained glass windows is unknown.

''The Hall of the Palace of Culture of Sailors has five works dedicated to seafaring - "Departure", "Watch", "Songs of the Motherland", "Sports" and "Return".
All stained glass windows were made by artists Sivukhin and Avdeyenko during 1981-1982. They left interesting autographs in the form of self-portraits on some stained glass windows. The composition has significant losses and needs restoration," - Ivan Stanislavskyi, a Mariupli journalist who created a photo guide on the city's monumental art.
