Sport complex Manezh was launched in September 2001. However, the building that has 6 gyms is more than 150 years old. It is a historical monument. It was built in the 19 century as a building for gymnastics and became a place for gymnastics trainings and inspections of the Novgorod garrison soldiers.
In the beginning of the 20 century revolutionary soldiers’ headquarters located there, during the Soviet era there was a mechanical plant. During the last years of socialism the production association «Complex» (Anatoly Nesterov) began the construction of the Cultural and Sports Complex for its employees in this building, but the work was stopped after the gym was set in operation. Over several years the building decayed and got damaged.
In autumn 1999 the mayor of Velikiy Novgorod Alexander Korsunov made a decision to start the reconstruction of the building within the framework of the Suspended Buildings Reconstruction Programme aiming to organize the local fitness complex. The project’s base was developed by the Deputy of Novgorod City Duma Dmitry Trofimov. Despite the funding problems, the building activity was completed in 21 months and the sport complex Manezh started its first season in September 2001. The history of this unique building may be learned from the works of I. Khokhlov, the Novgorod historian.
