    The Bogoroditsk palace-museum is located in the former estate of the Counts Bobrinskys in Bogoroditsk city. The palace was built by Catherine II for her illegitimate son A.G. Bobrinsky. The palace was built in the style of early classicism. It is not the only part of series of palaces and gardens, but the center of Bogoroditsk, as well. The five main streets of the city are spread out like a fan. A.T. Bolotov, a polymath, designed a park layout. He ran the estate at the end of the XVIII century. The palace architectural complex includes the entrance tower and Bogoroditsk St Kazan church. The exposition of the museum represents the series of palaces and gardens, the architect I.E. Starov, the landscape architect A.T. Bolotov and owners of Bogoroditsk estate, Bobrinskys counts. The museum presents the culture of early classicism in Russia. Passing through the enfilade of the second main floor, you will be able to enjoy the decoration of the interiors of the turn of the XVIII-XIX centuries, where the collection of applied art items is perfectly complemented by sculptures, paintings, exquisite draperies and houseplants. Evenings devoted to the literature and music, exhibitions, presentations, conferences are held in the Bogoroditsk palace-museum. Annually the palace welcomes guests during the days of Bolotov Theatre. The museum conducts musical and theatrical excursions for visitors of all ages. A half-hour walk from the palace, in the station building at Zhdanka railway station, there is a museum department dedicated to the third minister of communication lines, – grate-grandson of Catherine II, count Alexei Pavlovich Bobrinsky. Thanks to him in 1874 a feeder of the Ryazhsko-Vyazma railway was built from the station Khrushchevo (later renamed Uzlovaya) via Bogoroditsk to Efremov and Yelets. The museum exposition created on the place of the former waiting room by the employees of the Bogoroditsk palace-museum together with the Tula branch of the Moscow Railway tells us about the history of the station and three representatives of the Bobrinsky family.

    Он прекрасен в любое время года. Здесь такая же атмосфера русской усадьбы, как в Спасском Лутовинове и других похожих парках. В последнее время за парком стали ухаживать по-настоящему. А во дворце-музее могут провести познавательную экскурсию.
