4 The House of a Russian Merchant

The House of a Russian Merchant

Posted on April 21, 2015 by team


This house was built in the Russian eclectic style by Nikolay Bugrov, a merchant from Nizhny Novgorod, in the 1880s. Nikolay was a modest and practical man who led a hard life: All of his three wives died young as well as his children. So it’s difficult to understand what inspired him to build such a fairy-tale house.

In fact he could be inspired by the “Motives of Russian Architecture” – these publications were very popular in the 1870s.

The house of Bugrov was subject to restoration in 2007-2010 so it looks good today.

    Russian CULTURE is very rare these days, buried under politics and national problems like drinking and violent crimes. THIS is what people should be proud of, not oil and weaponry.

      Russian CULTURE is very rare these days, because of the numerous wars. What does the European nation if the enemy comes to his country? It gives up. What does the Russian nation if the enemy comes to his country? It fights sparing neither himself nor his property.

    Gorgeous and Beautiful. I feel like a child looking at this. I felt like I was looking at a picture from a Hansel and Gretel / Fairy-tail Book. Just amazing.
