Rastorguyev-Kharitonov's House, Yekaterinburg

(5/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Nowadays hosting children's creative activities, Rastorguyev-Kharitonov's House used to be one of the greatest palatial residences of the Ural region. Commissioned in 1794, this neoclassical building was intended to serve as home to many generations of Rastorguyev's heirs. However, the original owner died before the house was finished and the heirs abandoned it after failed attempts to share it. A visit the site provides scenic landscapes, hills, and a pond. Stroll along the winding paths that lead through forests and admire the facade with Corinthian colonnades. According to local legend, the house also has a labyrinth of underground passages beneath it.

  • Delightful monument of our past. "What Russian doesn't like to drive fast?" what Russian would not want to live in such a House?! With such a garden. As mountain view nice swimming pool here summer and winter sunny days! At any time of the year here it's worth to come. Will have a rest soul, eyes, heart.

  • The Manor itself is quite large in size, with a park and pond in the background is located on a small hill. There are many legends around the estate. But the view may be only outside, inside is the Palace of children and youth creativity.

  • Accidentally there was a meeting with a woman who worked for many years in this building in the era of the SOVIET UNION. Learn many interesting facts about the Manor. Interesting and valuable to hear the Guide. There inside you can enjoy a tour of the homestead. Just ask for a guide of the staff who work there for a long time. You can learn many interesting things about the Manor, exactly what them. Director out there right now young lady. I think a lot will not tell, although it is not excluded that would insist on personal conduct tours. Under estate lots long subterranean passages, but the entrances all bricked up. Summer Manor House from the street. Sverdlov is very beautiful! Located opposite the Temple-on-blood. Next to the estate is another ancient Church in the name of the Ascension with a unique icon "B.m. quick to hearken". All close by in the city centre
