Znamenskoe Rayok Estate

The scale and monumentality of the palace and the park are amazing! Of course, now the territory is overgrown, many things are lost, such as a wooden bell tower, but the palace and the colonnade of 136 columns - a real architectural marvel. They say the estate was rented to open a hotel here, so make sure you get there before the grounds are closed.
