10 most beautiful estates of Russia to see every Russian at least once in lifePictolic
Blogger Vadim Razumov on the past ten years, exploring all corners of Russia in search of the old estates. For it our entire country full of history, which is most clearly expressed in these once family homes. His goal is to "restore the historical relationships between people and estates, to draw attention to architecture and art, tourism, volunteering and promoting cultural heritage".
Vadim has published a list of the most beautiful estates in Russia. When composing, he tried to choose one favorite architectural object in a particular region. Next.
Estates and Dvoryaninovo Bogoroditsk, Tula oblast
These estates I joined in the formula: Bogoroditsk + Dvoryaninovo = my favorite estates in Tula region. I deliberately do not share these estates. For me Bogoroditsk is increasingly estate created by a brilliant scientist and philanthropist Andrey Timofeyevich Bolotov. And Dvoryaninovo — estate, which Bolotov drew inspiration for their ideas and accomplishments. It seems to me that Bolotov absolutely deserves to be put on a par with Lomonosov, Karamzin and other prominent figures from different eras.
Unfortunately, the figure Bolotov in our days, not hearing from the Russians. Bogoroditsk and Dvoryaninovo have one thing in common — parks these estates created in a unique "Russian style" — another genius invention Bolotov. And they represent a true masterpiece.
Estate Polibino, Lipetsk oblast
Lipetsk oblast is a Paradise for the traveler and the birthplace of the interesting in all respects estates. But I still think that the most magnificent estate in this area is the estate of polibino. Before the revolution it belonged to the family of the famous patrons — noble family Nechaev. Yury S. Nechaev-Maltsev was one of those who appeared in Moscow one of the most beautiful and prestigious museums in the world — HMI them. A. S. Pushkin. I love to look at beautiful main house with a columned portico, decorated with fancy ironwork.
The world's first hyperboloid tower design
Like the world's first hyperboloid tower built by the architect Shukhov, which Nechaev-Maltsov bought at the industrial exhibition in Nizhny Novgorod and brought in Polibino. Love polibinskogo garden, overgrown ponds and unusual photogenic of the estate.
The Znamenskoe-Raek HOMESTEAD, Tver oblast
The most beautiful classic manor of those that I could see. The main house was created by award-winning architect Nikolay Lvov and is considered one of his best creations. The interiors of the main house amaze with their beauty, despite the fact that now Znamenskoe-Raek is in a state of desolation.
The dome in Znamenskoe-Raek HOMESTEAD
The pearl of the interior decoration of the main house was magnificent dome of the main hall, creating the effect of sky. The manor is surrounded by beautiful countryside with partially preserved nature, which is nice to walk in both warm and cold seasons.
Estate Andreevskoe, Vladimir oblast
Estate Andreevskoe a surprisingly beautiful the main house. Belonged To The Roman Illarionovich Vorontsov. Then, the estate owned by his son Alexander Romanovich Vorontsov, which was the first Russian Ambassador to England.
The estate Andreevskoe
In 1784 and 1785 years in the estate came to A. V. Suvorov, and in 1812 there was Bagration. In 1833 the estate was called Pushkin familiar with his wife Vorontsov. Estate Andreevskoe described L. N. Tolstoy in "Khadzhi-Murat". I want to believe that in our days, the estate will be revived.
Gatchina Palace, Leningrad oblast
Choose the favorite Palace and the manor complex among a large number luxurious Imperial residences virtually impossible. But I opted for the Gatchina Palace. It is unique, has its own character, multi-faceted, not pretentious and very beautiful.
It is absolutely perfect and the Palace and its interiors, and the surface of the water, and pavilions, and gardens, and parks. The perfect combination of mystery, taste and naturalness. By the way, here you can fly over the Palace to admire its versatility.
Love since childhood. My hobby estates began with walks in Kuskovo. As a child, walking with grandma at Kuskovo, I have realized that I have the opportunity to see something very special. Since then, the years have passed. And I still believe Kuskovo the perfect example of the manor.
Glinka's manor, Moscow oblast
Another love, originating from childhood, is Glinka's manor. In this estate, which is one of the oldest in the suburbs, I was walking with grandma and grandpa in childhood. Then I heard creepy legends about the owner of the estate, associate of Peter the Great Jacob Bruce. That summer, he could have frozen ponds, held in Glinki magic rituals, created in Glinki system of underground tunnels.
The main house Glinka
As an adult, I already knew half of these myths are false. But the love of the estate, its history and mysterious atmosphere remained and growing every my visit to Glinka.
Vorontsov Palace, Alupka
Choose your favorite Palace of the Crimea is also a difficult task. But I'll opt for the Vorontsov Palace in Alupka. This extremely beautiful architectural complex stands out among other Crimean palaces with its power and amazing harmony.
The Palace combines two contradictory properties: similarity with European castles and absolute harmony with the surrounding landscape.
Estate Kostino, Ryazan oblast
Totally love the estate Kostino in the Ryazan region. Now on its prosperous past, remind the picturesque ruins of the main house and a preserved Park. The manor is surrounded by incredible views that add a special charm.
The environment of the estate of Kostino
Would like to see the estate as soon as possible restored. But now a walk in Kostino will delight all those who seek tranquility and aesthetics.
The estate of Ramon', Voronezhskaya oblast
The Palace of Oldenburg in Ramon — our response to British castles and palaces, is shrouded in numerous legends. The history of the Palace in Ramon combines the history of the descendants of the Romanov dynasty, and patronage activities, and the history of entrepreneurship, and mystical legends and history of the Renaissance.
Palace belonging to the family of Oldenburg, as if lifted from a fairy tale. He will appeal to both adults and children.
