Welcome to Plyos

The town's historical renown stems from an artists' retreat in the late 19th century: Isaac Levitan, Russia’s most celebrated landscape artist, painted its serenity when he lived here. More recent infamy is thanks to Milovka, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev's multibillion-rouble, 80-hectare country estate that anti-corruption activists say has a murky money trail. In 2016, politician and Putin opponent Alexey Navalny published a drone video that soars high above the property's 6m fence, showing the 19th-century manor buildings, guesthouses, staff hotel, private ski run, three helipads and a multi-tiered pool.
