Manor Pushchino on Nara - the ruins of a magnificent palace

After a week in green Pushchino on the way back to Moscow we drove into the suburb of Serpukhov to another Pushchino for the sake of another manor. And that's where the ruins really are is in the estate of Pushchino on Nara (not to be confused with estate Pushchino on the Oka). Even the manor is hard to call her name. Actually, it looks like after the bombing - some walls without ceilings and a roof with gaping window openings. And the palace used to be gorgeous apparently: tall columns with Corinthian capitals and cannels (I found the words specifically in Wikipedia, I’m self-educating, since I’m blogging), porticos from two sides, mosaic on the floor (still preserved, by the way), stucco molding on the facades, Italian arches. This house is a vivid example of Russian palladianism.

In Prince S.I. Vyazemsky, brother A.I. Vyazemsky (owner estate Ostafyevo), had good taste. And despite the fact that very little is left of the house and around the mountain of garbage, the manor has some special charm and imagination itself draws a beautiful picture of the manor house. Actually, apart from the ruins of the house and two stone tanks, which were probably fountains or ponds in the past, there is nothing else there. And in ten years this will not remain. This territory is simply located in the village and is surrounded by village houses and cottages, that is, it is not a monument. I suppose that it is already useless to do it as such, it is impossible to restore the house, it will be easier to rebuild a new one. And only 40-50 years ago the building was in quite normal condition.

Rumor has it that was before from the manor house andunderground passage across the river to the other side. At that moment, when we climbed the ruins, another company appeared, and the guy said that the last time he visited the estate, he saw the beginning of this underground passage, and now it seems to have been flooded with earth. On the other hand, all the buildings near the rivers have similar legends, although it may not be legends at all. Incidentally, the place is popular - an hour while we were there, three companies visited this place of interest, and this is on a weekday.

One of the balconies overlooks the dark andthick lime avenue overgrown with grass and nettles and leading to the Nara River. But it is better to get to the coast along a well-worn dirt road that goes in the same direction. If you do not turn anywhere, then you get to the trampled area where you can swim.

How to get to the estate Pushchino on Nara

The easiest way is by car and navigator, first bySimferopol highway, then drive through Serpukhov and get to the village of Pushchino, Proletarskaya street (the main road, on it and you will go). The ruins of the estate will be seen directly from the asphalt road through the trees, it is difficult to miss. You can also navigate the ruins of the outbuilding, it is generally right along the road. Directly to the manor house you can drive a car along a rough dirt road (about 100 meters).

Public transport will be more difficult. First, by train to Serpukhov, then by bus 29 Serpukhov-Gavshino, you must get off at the bus stop right after the railway crossing.
