The Gorenka Mansion

The Gorenka Mansion is different from all other historical places in the Moscow region due to its scale. It is located in the modern city of Balashikha, it is famous for its rich history.

At first glance, you can pay attention to the scale of the buildings. I just don’t understand why there is more ancient classical Romanism or the magnificent French style of the time of the enlightened monarchy. The architect was obviously doing the work on a large scale, and it was not in vain, because the original architectural forms, combined with a reflective landscape, fell in love with the young Russian emperor Peter II. In the summer, he practically did not leave Gorenka. The owners of this mansion were eminent nobles and the richest people in pre-revolutionary Russia.

Another last feature of the property that is difficult to approve was the first Botanical Society of Russia. Here in 1809, nurseries and greenhouses were divided into a huge area. The collection of flora collected on the farm was famous throughout Europe. A total of more than 3 thousand plants adapted to the climate of Russia.

Time was ruthless for Gorenka. The property is hopelessly dilapidated, some decoration elements, both internal and external, cannot be restored. The architectural complex is protected by the state. However, even years of stagnation cannot hide visitors from the ancient grandeur of Gorenka.

State Museum “Ostafievo”

It is one of the places of interest of the capital. An incredible monument of Russian culture of farms built in the 19th century and one of the centers of cultural life in Russia. In the time of the teacher of the poet of Ostafyev, Prince P.A. Vyazemsky, were Pushkin, Zhukovsky, Griboedov, Gogol, Boratynsky and Mickiewicz on the farm. Here, N. Karamzin wrote his work “The history of the Russian state”.

To date, only the main buildings of the mansion have survived. The manor house was founded in 1806, presumably in accordance with the design of the architect of the M. Kazakov school in the style of classicism. To this day there is an alley of linden trees, called “Russian Parnassus”. From 1911 to 1913, the last owner of the manor house was S.D. Sheremetev was the one who placed the monuments of the garden park at Pushkin, Karamzin, Vyazemsky, Zhukovsky.

Restoration works are underway now. But, despite this, the park and the museum are open to visitors.

You can visit the following exhibitions: “The Wonder of the Future”; “The museum that Russia lost”; “What a day, a new gift” and the medal cabinet, where the exhibition “300 years of history of the medal in Russia”


The manor of Tsar “Izmailovo” has a date of roots dating back to the fourteenth century and originally belonged to the old Izmailov boyarda, and is now an old noble estate of Moscow.

The dynasty of the czars of the Romans gave their ancestral status to Ivan the Terrible. It is hard to believe, but Izmailovsky Island was man-made; created by decree of Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich, during whose reign in Izmailovo was built zoo, where he demonstrated the fauna and galleries have been created with a maze, lots of green pavilions and flower gardens, and unique greenhouses that grow watermelons and melons extravagant

Until now, the main building of the mansion, the wonderful pavilions of the park and the restored Pokrovskaya church building have been preserved.

It should be noted that for nature lovers, walking through the Izmailovo forest will bring many positive emotions.

The Mansion «Serednikovo»

The mansion “Serednikovo” is one of the places of interest of the capital. Previously it was the property of Vsevolozhskys and Stolypins. The estate is one of the most famous places in Lermontov in Russia.

The Mansion «Valueyevo»

The property of Valueyevo, appeared in the fourteenth century, since the seventeenth century, received its name from its owner, the family representative, deacon Gregory Valueyevo. Many famous people lived during the existence of the estate, for example, the statesman count and manuscript collector Alexei Ivanovich Musin-Pushkin. By the way, much of what Count Musin-Pushkin saw in the Mansion can be seen so far as chimneys, parts of sculptures, moldings and figures of lions made of stone.

The Bykovo Mansion

Contrary to established opinion, Bykovo is not just the old Moscow airport. “Bykovo” was a very beautiful and famous estate in the past, built by the favorite of Catherine II, the governor general of Moscow, Izmailov. All buildings are designed in the style of Masonic architecture, to the order of which Mikhail Izmailov belonged.

The main attraction of the property is the two-story church that has been preserved since the late 18th century. The lower floor looks like an ordinary church with square columns, low arches and windows. Above the roof of the church towers are two towers, one of which was equipped with 7 bells; the largest of which weighed almost 2 tons, in the other there was a tower clock. At the end of the 19th century, a large bell tower was built nearby, which was successfully combined in the overall architectural complex.

The original version of the palace itself was not preserved, it was restored in the old place on the top of the hill by the architect of Simon in 1856. From the main entrance to the park is the main staircase, the circumferences of the entrance ramps to the sides.

The Altufevo Mansion

The Altufevo mansion together with the Church of the Exaltation Cross is an architectural monument of the 17th – 19th centuries in the north of Moscow.

There aren’t many real estate parks, there are old trees, but the park, most likely, has already gone down in history. From the main manor house there are only wineries and fragments of the walls of the first floor. On the remaining walls, the style of pseudo-Russian eclecticism is guessed. During the Soviet era, the Belvedere Tower, which had been standing here since 1851, was lost.

But in the territory of the manor house there is a surviving church of Krestovozdvizhenskaya, printed on the emblem of the capital’s Lianozovo district. The temple belonged to a rare type of ecclesiastical architecture “under the bells”, where the jingle ring is built on the temple premises. Churches of this type were built at the end of the 15th century.

From the farm buildings on the farm we obtained only one brewery; Slightly rebuilt in the Soviet era and a dependency with wineries from the 18th – 19th centuries.

The farm “Gorki Leninskie”

It is a museum reserve, which still pleases visitors with historical exhibits and the beauty of local nature. It is not difficult to get here, it is 10 km from MKAD. The reservation is open every day, a walk through the well-kept park with clean ponds and alleys is absolutely free.

The entrance door is a well-known monument of the Soviet era with a complete collection of manuscripts, posters and other things from that era.

The stone manor house was built here in the 18th century; then it went to the family of the noble Salvador. Later in 1909, the estate was bought by the widow of the manufacturer Savva Morozova – Zinaida. After that, the main building was rebuilt in neoclassical style; a loggia, a glazed porch and even a winter garden appeared.

The Lenin hills were built right on the hill, from where a beautiful view of the Turovka river opens with parks and pavilions.

Since 1918, Vladimir Ilich came to rest here, and after that he stayed to live on the farm. At his request, the interior remains as in the Morozova days, so today, visiting the “Gorki Leninskiye”; You can experience the atmosphere of the 19th-20th centuries.

Now the main building of the manor house, as well as the north wing of the building is open to visitors as a museum. In the carriage yard you can see the leader’s famous car: the Rolls-Royce “Silver Ghost”.

Monuments and sculptures are placed throughout the territory of the “Gorki Leninskie” estate; and you can visit the house of Vladimir Ilich, not far away, in which the museum’s exhibition is open.

Bratsevo’s mansion

In the Northwest Administrative District of Moscow is one of the less famous noble estates of the capital. Here, in the shade of the trees, is the manor house of Countess Ekaterina Stroganova.

Marfino Manor

Marfino’s mansion is an original monument of Russian architecture from the 18th – 19th centuries. The Marfino moment became famous not only for its palace and park complex; but also for the theatrical performances and the magnificent receptions held in the palace.

The estate received its name due to Prince Boris Golitsyn; who immortalized the name of his tragically dead daughter with the title. Throughout the years of its existence; The property has experienced several periods of prosperity, which undoubtedly affected its appearance. In the buildings of the manor house there are combined organic forms of classicism with some elements of pseudo-Gothic.

The Marfin Palace, admires its originality to this day, emerges sharply in the eyes of the traveler. Small pointed towers, jagged ridges, lancet windows make it look like a European castle from the Middle Ages. Instead of the traditional for those times, the owners of the front yard of the manor house broke a large pond in front of the palace; to which the white stone staircase descends elegantly.

The stone bridge attracts the most attention to itself. Its central part is a solid red brick wall; whose upper part has a gallery covered with 20 columns of white stone. Previously, the bridge was the main entrance to the estate.
