  • Description
    Alexey Pavlovich revived the manor park created by A.T. Bolotov. In the period of A.P. Bobrinsky's service on the post of Minister of Railways, the Syzran-Viazemskaya railway was built through Tula with a branch to Bogoroditsk and Efremov. Andrei Timofeevich Bolotov (1738-1833) is a Russian writer, memoirist (the author of the famous notes, which Leo Tolstoy called "precious"), a moralist philosopher, scientist, botanist and forestry specialist, one of the founders of agronomy and pomology in Russia. He made a great contribution to the recognition of tomatoes and potatoes as agricultural crops in Russia. The monument was erected in the year of the 250th anniversary of Andrei Timofeevich, in 1988. Andrei Timofeevich lived and worked for more than 20 years In Bogoroditsk, being the steward of the Empress Catherine II’s volosts in Kiyasovka and Bogoroditsk. He left behind a wonderful park, which his contemporaries called "the miracle of local places", "the pearl of the Tula region".
