Radar of the Space Communication Center and Grebnyovo Estate 1

Today we are going to see two interesting places near Fryazino, the Moscow Region: a radar of the space communication center and Grebnyovo estate.

Coming to the territory of the military base

It seems that this place is not abandoned

A tower with an approximate height 60m nearby. Some equipment on the top.

The first main object we were going to see – a huge radar set of the space communications center located on the territory of this military base.

The stairs are flooded, what is there on the bottom we wonder?

In the forest such flooded wells can be met

And this is Grebnyovo estate – our second destination.

In 1780-90s there was built the main estate house and a summer Grebnyovo church. In 1803 this estate vested in the hands of Anna Golitsyna whose husband Sergey Golitsyn began large-scale construction works in 1817.

In 1823 the estate took the form we can see today.

Old fretwork somewhere on the walls of the estate.

In 1845 the Golytsins sold the estate to a merchant Panteleev who made a vitriol and a distilling factories there. It ruined the interiors of the main house, however they were restored by efforts of the next owners of the Grebnyovo – the Kondrashyovs merchants.

In 1913 the estate was bought by a famous Moscow doctor Fyodor A. Grinevsky

Gradually the Grebnyovo estate was losing its original appearance. Its decorations and interiors were vanishing. In 1919 in its walls there was made a sanatorium for tuberculosis patients that later was replaced by a technical secondary school of electron devices …

There were made repeated attempts to restore the estate, but each time something prevented it from being totally restored. Thus, for example, in 1991 the house suffered from the fire that left only burnt walls …

Only these stairs didn’t suffer from the fire

A view from the balcony, here was a wonderful apple garden and a path to the river …

Looking at the eastern outbuilding of the estate, together with the western one it was preserved much better than the main building.

Today it looks like this and it hardly makes sense to begin restoration again …

    What is it with Russians and abandoning buildings?

    The Soviet Union was in the forefront of science (and mathematics) but now under capitalism Russia is stagnant or even sliding backwards in these fields. No matter how one feels about the U.S.S.R. one cannot say they were not ahead of the U.S. in physics, mathematics, and cosmology. (Let’s forget about Lysenko, okay? He was a pseudo-biologist and a Stalinist stooge).

    • jim-bob says:

      I wouldn’t say they were ahead of the US, but for many years they did manage to achieve parity with the US in the sciences. However, it was at a cost to the common man in the USSR as the achievements were done at the expense of not spending money on basic things like efficient food production and distribution. So, it was a thin veneer of progress atop a rotting core. Capitalism is far from perfect, but the decentralized nature of it makes it better able to produce enough to meet the basic needs of the average man because if one company is corrupt, you can usually find another to do business with that will be more than happy to provide what their competitor can not. in a communist country, you only have the state to buy from and when it’s screwed up, everything is screwed up. That’s why in the USSR you had to wait a few years for a Lada when in the US, you could buy a new car any time you wanted to provided you could afford it.

      • SovMarxist1924 says:

        I don’t know, it seems like there’s an obscene amount of everything under capitalism. How many different kinds of cereal (or toothpaste, or paper towels, etc.) do we really need? Does everyone need all the junk found in a Walmart? I don’t think there was that much incompetence in the gov’t. running things. I’m talking about the U.S.S.R. of course. They just spent way too much on the military, but you are aware of why, right? But I do understand your viewpoint. I just can’t accept the extreme income disparities in capitalist states. The “pyramid of capitalism” is still true.

    I wonder how life must have been when those places were in use. I can’t imagine… to be honest.

    • SovMarxist1924 says:

      For the pics of the estate: life in the 19th century was (compared to today) incredibly slow. Work took up much of the day, pretty much sun-up to sundown.

    Interesting. I happen to love old ruins; seeing the pictures of the building reminded me of one that is near to where I grew up. I remember hiking to it in 1962 when I was a child. It was still fairly intact then, and even had some furniture left inside. Someone set a fire in ’69 that gutted it. Here’s a website that has pictures as it appears today; the Overlook Mountain House in Woodstock, NY.

  15. SOC says:

    It kinda looks like the white house… without the semicircular bit at the front.

    Hard to fathom how much abandoned buildings appear on here.
    But always good to look and learn.

    I´m trying to get a study place in Germany in the coming summer semester. If there is somebody else whisng to study in Germany and needs help I can give you a good adress where I´m getting much support. The company is called HeSA Germany nad is specialized on supporting foreign students.

    In the moment they explain me everything and advise me where the adequate study place would be for me and which preconditions I have to fulfill, which documents I need, where I get them from and so on. If I fulfill the admission requirements they will also do the application process for me, with correspondence, document management, they translat everything and so on.

    I also found good information in their book “Managing your studies in Germany. A classic for all who wish to study in Germany.”

    Here is their adress

    Hope that I could give a good tip for anyone who wants to study in Germany too.

    Pic# 8 is not a meteorological staff. It is a geodetic site.
    The estate was abandoned many years ago. When I’ve seen it first 25 years ago it was already ruined.
