4 The House of a Russian Merchant

The House of a Russian Merchant

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.

1 Toropets: the Small City of Churches

Toropets: the Small City of Churches

Perhaps Toropets with its "symphony of churches" remains one of the most beautiful small cities of Russia. Only one third of them have been preserved up to date since the pre-revolutionary time, so we can imagine how beautiful the city used to be then. The city was founded in 1074, so
it's one of the oldest in the country. By the way, Toropets is not so far from Moscow - only 400 km away, so maybe you'll have a chance to visit it. Blogger petrushanov with friends went even further and used a hexacopter for taking photos of Toropets from the height.
