Usadba Sukacheva


A small park on the edge of the historical centre contains a smattering of beautiful wood-lace buildings and arbours. These house exhibitions dedicated to the family of 19th-century benefactor Vladimir Sukachev, who lived here until the October Revolution. The collection includes period furniture and paintings by old Spanish and Dutch masters. Perhaps the most touching bit is the recreated 'winter garden' – an indoor greenhouse filled with exotic tropical plants.
