Abandoned Religious And Cultural Heritage

Posted on July 3, 2013 by team

We are in the Lipetsk region of Russia to visit the mansion of the Muromtsevs and an unsual church in Balovnevo village.

Vladimir Church is a nice example of the cult architecture of early classicism on the territory of the Lipetsk region. It was built in 1797-1823.

Nearby is a tower in the “English gothic style”.

The complex existing today formed in the last quarter of the XVIII – beginning of XIX century. Its construction was started by Matvey Muromtsev, the first city governor of Tula. Unfortunately the main outhouse is in the poor condition today.

The mansion of the Nechaevs in Polibino village of the region.

It was being constructed in the XVIII – XIX centuries and consisted of a palace, English park, huge garden, cascade of ponds, household buildings etc. This all was being created by three generations of one and the same noble family of the Nechaevs.

Metal staircase inside one of the outbuildings.

Unique water tower nearby.

The temple of Dmitry Solunskiy in Berezovka village. It was built in 1897 in memory of the warriors who died in the Kulikovo battle.

Temple in Yeropkino village of the region. It was built to replace the old wooden temple in 1772.

    Actually in modern Russia there are lots of historical buildings that are restoring, thousands, but in this web they only put images of abandoned buildings, for me it is a good example of manipulation and filtration of information.
