One Russian Estate of the Eighteenth Century

One Russian Estate of the Eighteenth Century

On the bank of the Volga river there is a wonderful estate Tikhvino-Nikolskoye. The ensemble of the estate with the chirch and park was one of the best example of Russian classicism in the Upper Volga in the XVIII century. Even Catherine II was once the guest of the estate. But all that remained in the past. Little of that splendour has been preserved to the present days.

    • There’s no such thing as “free health care.” If you mean health care your neighbors are forced to pay for at the point of a gun, Russia may have that, but it’s not “free.” Someone has to pay for it. Thinking you can get things for free by stealing from others is what lead to the destruction and decay shown in these photographs.
