    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.

  • A unique architectural structure to the steppe of Ukraine, but to regret except the Museum Watch. The castle itself collapses in the grass all summer, a lot of garbage, watch nothing, everything is very sad and unfortunate.

  • Reminder of architecture unique to Zaporozhye region, but, unfortunately, see especially nothing-all in ruin. Operates a small museum where:-one room with exhibits of the Manor; -one room with exhibits of radio equipment; -one room ethnographical exhibits; There are several excursions (to the Museum and galleries in the stable). Definitely worth a visit, but hopefully sometime this architectural monument will be put in order and attend it will be more interesting.
