Dubrovitsy Manor and Church of the Signs - the only baroque temple

For a long time we thought where to go at the weekend, butsince they got up late, and then they were still going for a long time (we have this kind of sin for a long time to do), then instead of Voskresensk, we went to Dubrovitsy estate, as it is close. Actually, this was the last place next to us, so now we will travel further from home, perhaps even overnight, at the same time and find out what it is like to sleep in a tent with a small child. It’s time to start already, and then we postpone everything and postpone, summer is already in full swing, we don’t have time to blink the eye, as it will pass.

Dubrovitsy Manor and Church of the Sign

At the moment, the estate Dubrovitsy is the least interesting of what we have already seen. Moreover, the memories of the shady avenues and dilapidated buildings are still alive in the memory estate Sukhanovo... I do not want to offend anyone, but apart from the Church of the Sign of the Most Holy Theotokos, there is nothing to look at in Dubrovitsy.

It was built by order of Prince Golitsyn.by unknown architects at the end of the 17th century. According to the assurances of the priest-guide, in Russia there are no longer such baroque temples, and especially the unique sculptures of saints on the roof are nonsense for Orthodox architecture. And due to the fact that it was so strikingly different from ordinary temples, Patriarch Adrian did not even want to cover it, and for some number of years she stood unlighted. From myself I want to note that she reminded me a little Temple of Truth in Pattaya, not in style, of course, but in the amount of small details. Moreover, the Church of the Signs only from afar seems small, but when you come close, this feeling disappears immediately.

So go to Dubrovitsy just for the sake ofItalian Baroque, as well as for a walk in the fresh air, or, alternatively, swimming in the river Pakhra (and Desna). There is no park there as such, rather a large glade and paths, plus a small linden alley. However, the shadow can be found, and free space on the lush grass, although there are quite a lot of people on a day off, and almost every one of them is a photographer.

Dubrovitsy manor how to reach

By public transport to the manor Durovicenot difficult to get there. First, get by train from Kursk railway station to Podolsk station and then by bus 65 to Dubrovitsy village. So maybe there is another bus 417 from the metro station Yuzhnaya and to Dubrovits.

By car you need to go on the Warsaw highway through Podolsk. On the way, there will be signs to Dubrovitsy Manor and Znamenskaya Church. The road is simple, all the time in a straight line, literally two right turns.
