Grigoriy Vladimirovich Kondoidi was the leader of the small nobility of Tambov, State Councilor, member of the commission for local government reform in St. Petersburg, in a word, prominent, well-known personality and a legend in his own way.
By the way, the noble Kondoidi race came to Russia from the Corfu, a Greek island in the 18th century, and has since faithfully served our homeland.
The first Russian in the career of Kondoidi can be called as the well-known Russian physician Pavla Zaharovicha Kondoidi, who in the middle of the 18th century was organizing regular medical matters in the army, and served Empress Elizabeth as a personal gynecologist. It was his descendant Grigori, who became an honorary citizen of Tambov and of the main government officials.
Kondoidi did a lot for Tambov, and generally had a somewhat generous personality (and in some cases very questionable), because for a long time without thinking gave the city some of its mansions, including a luxurious mansion on the Gymnasicheskaya street, now called Str. Communal Manor, built in the Renaissance style, became the property of the city of Duma and council. In the 1980’s there was a police department. On the east and south wings the City Bank and the Women’s University were extended. In short, Don Kondoidi Tambov is used for fame. But, of course, with the advent of the Revolution, all these governments were abolished.
During the civil war in 1917-1918, the resistance to the revolution was here, which was headed by the Mensheviks, Socialists and White Officers. But on the night of 30 to 31 January 1918, the detachment of workers broke into the buildingand proclaimed Soviet power in the territory of the Tambov region.
Later, on the rich property of Kondoidi, Gubleskhoz met (1924), two years later became town hall, and another 2 years later, it was the district court, circa the 1930s. The Party Committee and City Council, since 1992, worked as the Mayor’s Office in Tambov. Today, the former mansion of the nobility is leader of the administration of the city of Tambov.
Fortunately, due to the fact that the estates were free of Soviet authorities, they did not suffer much to furnish the house. Therefore, at this time, the former residence of Kondoidi is preserved as well as the refined exterior decoration with a lot of small details, giving a festive look, and beautifully decorated doors, and marble staircases, which leads to the second floor.
By the way, looking at this beauty can be very easy: in the mansion the machine head of the city administration of Tambov is housed, library, several committees and some of the control of the city administration. So during the week you can look for business here freely.
Address: st. Municipal, 6.
