Krivyakino Estate

The Krivyakino Estate became the chief symbol of Voskresensk, sharing the glory as one of the most picturesque places of the city with the renascent estate of Spasskoye. It was founded in the 18th century. At this very time its centerpiece, the manor house, was erected in the baroque style with elements of early renaissance. The appearance of this house is very interesting and distinctive.

The history of the Krivyakino Estate is associated with several notable personalities in Russian history. For some time the owner of the estate was the father of Ivan Lazhechnikov, a renowned writer and founder of the Russian historic novel genre. In his masterpieces, Lazhechnikov, with his virtuoso talent, strikingly and thrillingly described biographies of prominent personalities, historic events and other facts. The history of Krivyakino was also reflected in several masterpieces of the writer.

Pyotr Tchaikovsky, the world famous ingenious composer, came close to buying the estate when he was in the market for a small country residence. The Krivyakino Estate has now been restored. Nowadays the estate houses the “Krivyakino Estate Cultural Center.” The center holds scientific, cultural and other festive events.

Close to the manor house is a park area, part of which has been preserved from the 18th and 19th centuries. Surviving to this day are also the two wings, one of which is home to the estate church of the Icon of Our Lady of Georgia. Unfortunately, it fell into disrepair during the Soviet era, but there are plans to restore it soon.
