New banknotes with castles will soon appear in the wallets of Russians, but for now the design is chosen by an open competition. So, the bills proposed to represent the beautiful old town with its symbol — the Vyborg castle.
Vyborg castle can decorate banknotes of 200 and 2000 rubles.
On Tuesday, June 28, the Bank of Russia launched an all-Russian campaign to select symbols for new banknotes of 200 and 2000 rubles. In order for anyone to be able to offer their own version of the new banknotes, a vote was launched on the portal your-Russia.RF. Here you can offer a combination of the city and the symbol that will be used in the design of new banknotes. For example, Vladivostok and the bridge over the Golden horn.
And the residents of Vyborg have already offered to decorate one of the new banknotes with the image of Vyborg castle. So, on the banknote of 200 or 2000 rubles may be a view of the monumental building on the Castle island, which is considered the only monument of Western European medieval architecture in Russia.
