We wanted to go to Voskresensk, yes Yegornaughty all night and said that so far, he did not intend to go. Therefore, as a matter of urgency (in order not to cancel the trip) they decided to go closer, and all I could quickly find was the Leninsky Gorki estate. And I must say we did not regret anything - and the place is good for walking, and the company was wonderful.

Manor Leninsky Gorki
This manor is a two fencedterritory one inside the other. The first one is large and is a forest and fields with asphalt paths. About one entrance is the museum of V. I. Lenin, and the second opposite is the Museum "The Cabinet and Apartment of V. I. Lenin in the Kremlin." Actually, this is why these Leninsky hills, Vladimir Ilyich, have lived and worked here since 1917 and spent a total of about two years. Therefore, there is also a memorial alley along which the coffin of death carried its coffin, marked today with granite blocks and chains. So fans of his work, definitely worth a visit here.
The second territory is much smaller and is locatedapproximately in the center of the first and represents just that very museum-estate Gorki Leninsky, as well as a reserve. Of course, it appeared here not after the revolution, but long before, in the 18th century. It passed from hand to hand and was rebuilt. I will not list names, for me they were all unknown, not that Vyazemskys with their Ostafyevo or Volkonsky with Sukhanovo.
From architecture you can see: the main house, the outbuildings to it are adjacent and a couple of rotundas, and from the natural one: a well-kept park with flower beds and two ponds. There is also a luxurious linden alley, several smaller alleys and greenhouses. Also on the territory grow relict plants and somewhere in the forest there are barrows of the 10th century. In fact, this entire manor was so well preserved only because there are museums dedicated to the former leader, otherwise there was no ruin or any ritual-revolutionary burning to avoid it.
Despite the simplicity of architecture andthe banality of the place as a whole, it produces only pleasant impressions, and the well-kept park of the manor, covered with flowers and decorative bushes gives only positive emotions. On a summer sunny day, Gorki Leninsky is the best suited for unhurried walks with a carriage and children. And given the length of the tracks and the length of the territory, you are unlikely to be bored and walk in circles. It is not less pleasant that the manor museum is not very popular among people, there was almost no one there at all on weekdays, and judging by the reviews on the Internet and at weekends it is not much. Surely, the regulars there are only residents of the surrounding houses. I would live nearby, go to the park to work with a laptop on the grass, or like Lenin in the rotunda, you see, and also what a smart person would write. The leader of the proletariat knew a lot about estates ...
