  • The building is white, so even with numerous sculptural groups on the façade does not seem overcrowded. Inside too many decorations, everything in good condition. But you can only photograph in lilac and ball halls and main staircase is already in the output. Staff-age women with a very authoritarian behavior. The reason, of course, not at the age ... Of the exhibits I remembered exhibition mail photo greeting cards with kinds of n/n of previous years.

  • "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.
