Abramtsevo

   
 
 

Some Russian towns look so impressive and peculiar, that memory retains their image after the very first visit, and calls you to come back again and again. Sergiev Posad, near Moscow, is among such towns. Its history dates back to the middle of the XIV century, when St. Sergius founded the Holy Trinity Lavra on an ancient hill called "Makovets". Since that time the Holy Trinity-St.Sergius Lavra plays an important life in spiritual, cultural and political life of Russia.

Another pearl of Russian history, "Abramtsevo" memorial estate, is also not far from here. Abramtsevo, a nobleman's estate near Moscow, was a prominent center of the 19th - 20th century Russian artistic and intellectual life. The Mamontovs, a family of philanthropists, owners of the estate, played host to many eminent artists, writers, musicians, and actors. The estate is surrounded by a beautiful park. The old buildings are still decorated with the original paintings by famous Russian artists Vasnetsov, Vrubel, and Polenov.

It is a place where merry, talented and creative people -artists, actors end singers - met. Among them were Repin, Vasnetsov brothers, Polenov, Vroubel, Shalyapin, Stanislavskii, Ermolova. "The Gallery" hotel&restaurant complex, which reproduces the spirit of the Russian modernist style of the end of the nineteenth century, borders "Abramtsevo" memorial estate.
