The Culture Palace in Ivanovka was constructed in 1985. Due to lack of performing any repair work for a long time, the building had fallen into disrepair, and was forced to suspend its activities. Based on the Resolution signed by President Ilham Aliyev in September 2018, 2.5 million Manats were allocated to the Ismailli District Executive Authority from the President’s Reserve Fund for the basic repair of the palace and provision with necessary furniture and equipment. The building was repaired, keeping its previous architectural style. The assembly hall, banquet room, rooms where the music school is operating, the dance salon and the library were basically repaired, keeping their previous look.
Olga Zhabina: This is a nice present for us. Now, we have not only bread, but also music. Thank You very much.
Mehriban Aliyeva: We will come to listen to your concerts.
Olga Zhabina: We are always ready.
Mehriban Aliyeva: Thank you very much. We wish you successes.
