  • "Zefirnyj facade gives the impression. Inside, the main staircase, also minced, and then meeting with garderobŝicami, a bunch of smotritel′nic, a type of protection that kompostiruût brain about shoe covers, bags, backpacks. All cells that exhibit little, really, a lot of fingers sucked, though the finish rich and corresponds to the original kind, very strong overload of Rococo styles, but the feeling did not leave the euro. The last room, Grand living room like where you can officially fotat′-sockapmuzejnogo masterpiece of surrealism, but this is the room for which the entire estate worth view. Fantastic views on the Volga River.

  • The farmstead is situated in the city centre to the right from the Kremlin. Building a truly Royal Palace both outside and inside. The façade is decorated with angels and caryatids. Gorgeous wrought iron grille gate leading to the courtyard of the building. Inside admire grand staircase, a ballroom, a decor ceiling and walls. It is a pity that the interiors are not represented in the classical form, now hosts an exposition of Museum of local lore.
