Pogorelovo is an abandoned village in the Kostroma region. It used to be a rich state village. Ivan Polyashov was the richest person in the village. He even obtained an order from the royal family and repaired the Winter Palace.
In 1903 Ivan Polyashov constructed a house and became one of the largest landowners in the neighborhood.
The house had a very complex and unique construction. At the same time, it was fit for wise farm management.
The house was confiscated in 1918. Ivan’s children moved to Siberia.
Later a couple of Russian painters bought the house and restored it.
The village was abandoned in 1990.
