  • Stunning Manor surrounded by an age-old forests, great place for a stroll. Unique architectural pakrkovyj onsambl' on the banks of the river. Great place for photo shoots, trips and recreation.

  • Love this Homestead: for the beauty of the buildings, for silence walks along the River, for the atmosphere of romance, for the chance to dream. In my opinion it's better to come here my family simply walking. We came here on a crowded s'edaet Music Festival-the charm of the place.

  • Specially came to Arkhangelsk in the sanatorium. Time proved to much for that wander through all corners of the Museum-Manor Arkhangelskoe. It is a pity that it was winter and most of the exhibits and exhibitions closed. But what this charm-walk in the snow-covered alleys, along a deserted Park. Feel the desolation, in some places there is no master hands. It is a pity that the commercialization becomes the basis of all economic activity. Such places where a luxurious nature coexists with historic buildings, each of which has its history dating back to 17.18 century units not only in Russia but also in the world. All this should be cherished. But, unfortunately, the authorities behave like humans came out of nowhere: sell everything you can and cannot! One can only hope that the Manor Arkhangelskoe persists in spite of everything, and our grandchildren and great-grandchildren will admire the beauty of this place and is proud of our history.
