"Bogucharovo is a picturesque historical spot outside of Tula. The atmosphere is very quiet, and it is very beautiful here in every season of the year. People can fish and swim in Bogucharovo ponds in summer. In winter these pounds turn into cool ice rinks. The manor of Bogucharovo is famous for its owner Aleksey Stepanovich Khomyakov, who was a philisopher-slavophile.
