Museum estate Ostafyevo - so I lived

Sunny days came and we started slowlyget out in the immediate vicinity. The first was the estate Ostafyevo near Scherbinka and not far from Butovo. So many times I drove past on a bicycle, but it was not leisure time, since it was impossible to go inside the bicycles, but I didn’t want to go specifically by car or by public transport, even though it was not for a long time to get there.

The first impression of the park and the manor museumOstafyevo - so that I live. Once again, I understand why some people buy a few hectares for themselves and make themselves a manor with their forest and pond. What are there miserable 6 acres at the cottage, when here the gaze is not resting on the fence, but on tall tree trunks on the horizon. Not necessarily the same tomatoes and radishes all plant :) I hope we, too, all-so sooner or later decide on a piece of land and its hacienda.

History of the Ostafyevo Manor Museum

The manor was built by Prince Vyazemsky at the end18th century and most of the time belonged to his descendants. The fourth of them, for some reason, sold it to Count Sheremetyevo, who tried to preserve everything there, opened several monuments and created the Pushkin Museum. After the revolution, the status of the museum remained, but only until the year 30, after which various institutions and a rest house were located there. The collection was scattered around other museums and sold out. And only a couple of years before the restructuring, the manor again received the status of a museum.

In fact, quite a typical story forSoviet time. At that time, historical monuments did not embarrass anyone, despite the fact that all the brightest figures of that time appeared in this house: Pushkin, Karamzin (lived for 12 years), Turgenev, Griboedov, and so on. But I will not bore you with history, it is already full of it on the Internet.

Impressions from the museum of the estate Ostafyevo

The park is small, not crowded (on a weekday) andpleasant. The thing is to walk with a stroller, read a book or chat with friends over a lid (from a thermos) of tea. And the most important thing is not far from Moscow, and the air will be much cleaner. That would be still in the pond could swim, so in general beauty. Since this was our first outing, every minute we enjoyed the warm breeze, the fresh air and the warming rays of the sun.

Watch actually in the estate of Ostafievo especiallynothing, meaning in the park itself, you can just be there. In the museum, probably more interesting, but we did not get there, since it only works until 16 o'clock. But it does not matter, I somehow are not very museums, since nature is a great lover, we will leave museums for the winter.

Not far from the entrance to the park there is a spring with deliciouswater than we did not fail to take advantage of, pre-pouring out of the bottle purchased. Perhaps we will come here after her later, because of the distance Holy Spring in Talezhewe are lazy there to get water and drink filtered, which is not very good. You can go to the well-spring without entering the park.

Information to visit

How to get to the estate Ostafyevo? Getting there by car is easy. You need to go along the old Varshavka to Podolsk and at the first turn in Shcherbinka go to the right, cross the railway crossing and follow a straight line (not the main road), without turning anywhere, bypassing the Ostafyevo airport, you'll face the entrance to the park opposite the church. And by public transport, if you go, then first to the station Shcherbinka by train or bus (from metro station Dmitriy Donskoy) and then by 45 bus to the destination.

Where the point is, there is the main entrance to the park and parking. A good place for walking, but the estate itself is quite small. Read about the estate
