“Immediately after the completion of the merchandise
began to build, and two weeks later, thanks to our wooden buildings, I could already move
here … But my new estate is not called “here”: I called it Tsaritsyn, and by all accounts,
this is heaven. ”
This is what Catherine the Great Grimm wrote to her new possession of Tsaritsyno and the
summer residence. Where can one find the lands on which the
Russian Empress Catherine the Great himself walked and which they admired? Ah, where can you find the place where Grigory
Potemkin himself was in 1775? Today we are in such a place. We are in Tsaritsino. In 1786, the palace built by Vasily Bazhenov
