For a long time we thought about where to go on the weekend, but since we got up late, and then got ready for a long time (we have such a sin to do everything for a long time), instead of Voskresensk, we went to the Dubrovitsy estate, as it is not far away. Actually, this was the last place next to us, so now we will drive further from home, perhaps even with an overnight stay, at the same time we will find out what it is like to spend the night in a tent with a small child. It's time to start, otherwise we put it off and put it off, summer is already in full swing, we won't have time to blink an eye, as it will pass.

We had the same line-up for this trip. So far, no one is joining us 🙂
Manor Dubrovitsy and Church of the Sign
At the moment, the Dubrovitsy estate is the least interesting of what we have already seen. Moreover, memories of shady alleys and dilapidated buildings are still alive in the memory. estate Sukhanovo... I don't want to offend anyone, but apart from the Church of the Sign of the Most Holy Theotokos, there is nothing to see in Dubrovitsy.
It was built by the order of Prince Golitsyn by unknown architects at the end of the 17th century. According to the priest-guide, there are no such baroque churches in Russia anymore, and the sculptures of saints on the roof are especially unique - 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 illuminate it, and for a number of years it remained unlit. On my own I want to note that she reminded me a little Temple of Truth in Pattaya, not style, of course, but the amount of small details. Moreover, the Church of the Sign seems small only from afar, but when you come close, this feeling immediately disappears.
So it's worth going to Dubrovitsy only for the sake of the Italian Baroque, as well as for a walk in the fresh air, or, as an option, swimming in the Pakhra (and Desna) river. There is no park as such, rather a large meadow and paths, plus a small linden alley. However, you can also find a shadow, and free space on the lush grass, although there are a lot of people on a weekend, and almost every one of them is a photographer.
And from the estate itself, the main building of the main house remained, in the last century rebuilt after a fire, and in which the registry office and other organizations are now located, and several other small buildings.
Manor Dubrovitsy how to get there
It is not difficult to get to the Durovitsy estate by public transport. First, get by train from the Kursk railway station to the Podolsk station and then by bus 65 to the village of Dubrovitsy. So maybe there is also bus 417 from the Yuzhnaya metro station and to Dubrovitsy.
By car, you need to go along the Varshavskoe highway through Podolsk. On the way there will be signs to the Dubrovitsy Estate and the Znamenskaya Church. The road is simple, always in a straight line, literally two right turns.
Here is the site of the temple in Dubrovitsy, kind of official - http://www.dubrovitsy-hram.ru/, there you can read more about the history.
Where are Dubrovitsy on the map
The Dubrovitsy estate is located right on the river bank. The parking is obvious (near the gates of the estate and the highway) and not obvious (on the other side, where are the residential buildings).
