  • Manor of razorjonnaja and completely Popov landlords view in 1917. respectively. For Taurus this was almost a lock. Interestingly, the name of the town Vasylivka already several centuries, retains the name of the founder of the Manor of yuanshi son Popa-Vasily Popov. This family was in possession of the Popovs ' mansion more than 50000 hectares of land in the Tauride province that Vasily Popov probably got over the Potemkin. Apparently from the income from these lands descendants of Basil and built his homestead. Showroom is a few rooms in the former "Guest House". There is not a large collection of placed objects that locals looted in the Manor Started a hundred years ago, and now some of their descendants piece stolen back already in the Museum. The Popovs ' Mansion House and Grand stables with towers do not have access due to the dilapidated condition, they can only watch from the outside. When visiting the Homestead Popov need to take a tour, because the most interesting thing in this museum it is the history of this initially and family nezakonorozhdennnoj bezrodniy built almost in the desert steppe of Tavria Castle. Admission fee only on the territory of the Manor, without visiting the exhibition rooms-15 UAH. Entrance to the "Guest House"-25 UAH. A complete tour of the Castle, prododzhitelnostju more than two hours, costs 50 UAH. (about $2). Very strange that in vasilevka, through which highway do not have any advertising Museum, although it is a transit town, and by passes many potential Museum visitors, even the unsuspecting of his existence. The museum management or none at all, or it is too weak.

  • Actually there is no Castle. He completely destroyed and preserved only the tower. On the site of the Castle excavations found the fireplace and seemingly convoy. Nerazrusheny only fligli (separate locks on the outskirts), stables, Castle maids. Allowed only one outbuilding (ibid. Museum with finds) and Dungeon stables. There's nothing interesting except that in darkness under the Earth.

  • Even the remnants of the castle is impressive. It is never OK not funded. The previous administration was simply enthusiasts of his craft and these patriots. Now it's at the behest of ljustrirovali-type time all ran, took little money for trips, etc. but no new leadership could draw attention to the complex. It's not the Hermitage to here went all out and carried their money. Previous team attracted sponsors. Such constant sponsors were biker clubs of Ukraine and the RUSSIAN FEDERATION, who had been at the castle of Knights mototurniry. Always at different times-from spring to autumn-held rallies bikers at a specially decorated gothic tales, Knights of art, various martial arts type kick-boxing, concerts and drinking. The last attempted in 2015m already newcomers, but naturally, that without travelers to the Crimea and the participation of bajkerovskogo movement it's all turned out kislen'ko.

  • Until recently, did not even know that a neighbouring area has a real old Castle. Here, nearby, in a Vasilevka! And don't need to go to Mukachevo, Lutsk, Kamenets Podolsky or in Lviv region, to touch the real history and see quite an interesting structure. The castle is really very beautiful on the outside but inside ... Within the visit failed because the building is in disrepair and is literally falling apart before our eyes. Unfortunately money for its restoration is not and hardly foreseeable. Funds collected at the expense of local and visiting charity, but of course they are not enough. Therefore, as sad as it may sound, should hurry to have time to see this gem of Zaporozhye region.

  • Good place! Many buildings with interesting architecture. The Museum contains a large number of paintings that show that this place was in the early 19th century. before the revolution. Also many parts of everyday life of those times, documents, coins etc. The complex is gradually being restored. It is a pity that nevcìlìv himself. :-( Everyone who rides the sea in Simferopol Highway known post of TRAFFIC POLICE "flying saucer" in Vasilyevka, from her estate to the minute road-go not regret it!

  • Interesting place. There is a small museum on the territory of interesting walks. But the Museum is absolutely not develops, over the past five years no progress in restoration and excavation. And sorry, potentially a very beautiful place can work. And yet, not enough signage. Need better advertising Museum and then know about it only local.
