In the XVII century in the village of Sofrino was founded the estate, which originally belonged to the king. In the XVIII century, the estate began to come into the personal possession of the empress. Noble people regularly stopped here, and therefore all buildings were maintained in good condition.
The estate has a Smolensk church, in which the remains of Countess Yaguzhinsky are buried and this attracts crowds of tourists.
Estate "Tsarevo" is located in the village of the same name. It was founded by Count N.I. Sheremetyev in the 17th century. Over the long period of its existence, the estate has changed its owners more than once. Most of the buildings on the estate were not preserved. Only St. Nicholas Church survived completely.
Now this church is recognized as an architectural monument of the XIX century. Here, here and there, elements of murals have been preserved, and not far from the temple there is a graveyard with ancient tombstones.
Since 1662, the village belonged to the princes Kurakin. In 1694, the territory began to belong to Boris Kurakin, who began to improve the territory. He set up a magnificent garden with beautiful ponds. After his death, the son, following the will of his father, exchanged the old wooden church for a new stone building. It happened in 1735.
The main manor house was built of wood and stood in the center of the park. It stood until 2005, until it burned out in a fire. Only a delightful park survived.
Serebryanka is the left tributary of the Uchi River with a length of 11 km. It flows in the city. At the beginning of the 20th century, a dam was erected on the river. This was handled by the management of the Hammer and Sickle factory, which until now is located in the same place.
To connect different areas of the city, there are convenient bridges on the river. There is a boat station on Serebryanka, and every season there are youth rowing competitions.
Sports Palace "Pushkino"
In 2007, a new sports palace was opened in the city. Its area is more than 7,000 m2, which successfully housed two large modern swimming pools and platforms for practicing various sports. The largest hall can accommodate more than 800 guests at a time.
During the construction of the building, a time capsule with a letter was laid in the foundation, which will be opened by the descendants exactly 100 years later. Professional trainers work here.
Memorial complex "Memory"

Near the main entrance to the chapel is a bell that once rang at the Grebnevsky church and survived after the fire.
Church of the Grebnevskaya Icon of the Mother of God in Klyazma
We built this one of the most significant churches of the Moscow Region in 1902. They built it with funds raised by the residents of the village of Klyazma. In 1939, this church was closed and partially destroyed. In 1992, the church was returned to the Russian Orthodox Church, and its restoration began, which lasted a long 10 years. In October 2007, a fire broke out and the church building completely burned down. A new brick temple was built on the site of the burned one - an exact copy of the burned church.
3 km from the station. Sofrino is the estate of Talitsa. It was founded in the 19th century. On the territory of the estate rebuilt the manor house, premises for household needs and a forge.

Near the railway station there is a monument of the early twentieth century - the Old Water Tower. This 20-meter beauty was built in 1903 in order to supply water to steam locomotives arriving at the station. Over time, the need for this has disappeared. Now the tower is a rather noticeable landmark of the city, as it is painted in a bright turquoise color, and due to its height it can be seen from any corner of the city.
Manor of Malce Brodovo
In the suburb of Pushkino, in the small village of "Forest Glades" there is an old estate "Malce-Brodovo." It was founded in the XVIII century by the landowner N.P. Saltykov.

Underground Cave Church of Dmitry Solunsky
In 2007, 4 small cells were discovered in the caves, which were intended for the solitude of monks during prayers. A little later they discovered a more spacious cell for holding joint prayers.

Church of Filaret
This church was opened at the very end of the twentieth century. She is in the courtyard of the Church of the Icon of the Mother of God "Unexpected Joy."

There are no other elements of decor on the building. The church is still holding services.
The cottage was built in 1877, the merchant of the second guild N.I. Strukov. It is located near the railway in the forest zone. Almost every year Konstantin Paustovsky was here. During the Second World War, the building housed a comprehensive school, and since the 50s - an evening school.

Grand Catherine Palace
- Address: st. Sadovaya, 7. Stop transport "Catherine's Palace."
The diamond in the necklace of Pushkin's unique sights, photos and descriptions of which are contained in the article, is the Great Catherine Palace. An architectural miracle created a galaxy of outstanding architects. The first version of the royal residence was built according to the IF project. Braunstein. In the middle of the XVIII century. I. Chevakinsky, M. Zemtsov, D. Trezzini worked on the expansion of the palace. He gained his present look in 1756, thanks to the efforts of B. Rastrelli.
In splendor, the baroque architectural complex is in no way inferior to the famous Versailles. The interiors of the residence of the Russian emperors are delightful. Only the gilding of luxurious halls, cabinets, boudoirs, enfilade, elegant stucco molding took more than 100 kg of precious metal. During the Second World War, the palace received numerous injuries. The damage was so serious that work on the reconstruction of the surroundings of some rooms continues to this day. Today in the Catherine’s Big Palace the expositions of the Tsarskoye Selo GMZ are located.

A delightful example of architectural classicism adorns this suburb of St. Petersburg since 1788. The Cathedral is better known as St. Sophia Cathedral, although it was consecrated in honor of the Resurrection of the Lord. This conflict has an explanation. The model for the architects who designed the building was Sofia, Constantinople. This choice was not made by chance. Catherine the Great wanted to build not just a temple, but also a monument in honor of the valor of Russian weapons, which ensured the empire's rule on the northern coast of the Black and Azov Seas. The Queen’s plan was realized by architects I. Starov and C. Cameron. The military cathedral of the Cuirassier Life Guards of the Imperial Regiment is impeccable. The temple is decorated with porticoes supported by Doric columns. Already in modern times, mosaics and enamels appeared in elegant niches of the facade, and bronze statues of Igor Chernigovsky and Alexander Nevsky appeared in front of the church entrance. The interiors of the cathedral are concise and solemn. Here you can admire the magnificent black granite columns, carved iconostasis. Under the canopy of the temple, 12 revered Orthodox icons are kept.
- Address: st. Palace, 2. Stop of transport "Street Palace".
In order to understand what a truly royal gift should be, you just need to come to Pushkin and see the Alexander Palace. The magnificent building, the construction of which lasted about four years, and ended in the spring of 1796, became a splendid present for Catherine the Great to marry her beloved grandson - the future autocrat Alexander I.
The creation of the great D. Kvarnegi strikes the imagination of all guests of the Leningrad region. The proportions of the palace are perfect, the decor is impeccable. A half-tonond of the central portal, covered with an elegant sphere of a dome and slender rows of Corinthian columns, give the building a solemnly graceful look. Maybe that's why the very romantic emperor martyr Nicholas II made the palace his residence. Decades of misuse after the October Revolution and during the Second World War, when parts of the Wehrmacht were lodged in the building, did not pass without a trace. If the damage to the facade was repaired quite quickly, then the reconstruction of the interiors of Alexandrovsky continues to this day. The completion of restoration work is scheduled for 2020.
- Bus stop "Palace Street".
It may seem to travelers who have seen Peterhof that creating even a semblance of this splendor is impossible. However, wandering around the Alexander Park, it is easy to verify the opposite. Here, of course, there is no enchanting constellation of fountains, but the stunning architectural and landscape composition created around the palace can enthrall the most demanding tourist. Recreation is divided into two parts. The new garden is modeled on elite European parks of the 18th century. It is divided by lines of trimmed shrubs and trees into zones with perfect geometry. The garden is decorated with Dragons, Chinese and Cross bridges, curtain walls, graceful arches of the Great and Small Whims. There is a Chinese village and even its own Parnassus. The landscape park is famous for its impressive natural compositions and colorful pavilions.
Tsarskoye Selo Railway Station
- Address: Railway Station Square, 1. Station "Transport" stop.
One of the symbols of modern Pushkin is considered the building of the railway station. It was built already in the post-war period, instead of the building, known from the pre-revolutionary photos of the imperial family and destroyed in the first years of the Second World War. Soviet architects tried not to violate the architectural concept of Tsarskoye Selo with their creation. The station pavilions have strict classical forms, an elegant arcade leads to the platforms. The facade of the building is decorated with columns, medallions with high reliefs of V. Zhukovsky, N. Karamzin, R. Derzhavin, P. Chaadayev, V. Kyukhelbeker, A. Delvig. The interior of the pavilions is very impressive. The arches of the waiting room are supported by a two-row colonnade leading to a niche with a bronze monument to A.S. Pushkin. The bas-reliefs with the profile image of the great poet are placed on the tympans of the end walls. The composition is complemented by elegant panels, wrought iron chandeliers with matte shades of blue and white glass.
Pavilions of Alexander Park
- Address: Alexander Park. Bus stop "Dvortsovaya Street".
The true decoration of the Alexander Park is the amazing creations of architects who served at different times at the court of the Russian emperors. The White Tower, for example, was erected in the first third of the 19th century. A. Menelas for the offspring of Nicholas I. The knight's castle in miniature is decorated with sculptures of knights. The terrace of the citadel is guarded by cast-iron lions.
Another masterpiece of A. Menelas with full justification claims the title of the most original building of the Alexander Park. At first glance, it seems that this is a very ancient Gothic chapel, partially turned into ruins. However, this is not so. The ingenious architect originally built Chapelle with one dilapidated portal. So the construction of 1820 and turned into an "ancient" artifact.
The creator of another park citadel is architect S. Danini. It was he who worked at the end of the XIX century. above the decor of the building, built in 1834, giving the building its current look. The building has all the attributes of a knight's fortress: high towers with battlements, thick walls, loopholes. The collection of weapons and armor, once housed in the Arsenal hall, is now on display at the Hermitage. Three years ago, part of the collection handed over by Alexander III to the imperial museum was returned to the castle. Now they can be seen during a tour of the Arsenal.
The architectural ensemble of the Krasnoselsky Gate consists of two brick wings of the guardhouse and cast-iron fence. Neo-Gothic houses with miniature towers in the corners and lancet windows-loopholes look incredibly colorful.
The pavilion complex of the Chinese village consists of a dozen houses built in an authentic style by I. Neyelov and C. Cameron in the last third of the XIX century. The dominant feature of the ensemble is the observatory building, crowned by two rotundas. According to Chinese tradition, the roof of the buildings, painted with gilded scales, is decorated with figures of dragons.
Architectural highlights of the Catherine Park
- Bus stop "Catherine Palace".
On the territory of the Catherine Park there are several dozens of architectural masterpieces that make up a single ensemble with an amazing landscape composition. Some of them are worth telling separately.
Elegant porticoes of the roof of the second tier of the Cameron Gallery support 44 slender columns of the ionic order. The facade of the first floor is a glazed arcade, which is why a very massive building seems almost weightless. From the south side to the entrance to the gallery is a stone staircase, above the pylons of which bronze statues of Flora and Hercules rise.
You can get to the Hermitage pavilion only through a drawbridge, since the building was erected on an artificial island. F. Rastrelli’s elegant creation cannot be looked at without aspiration. An octagonal emerald-white building with four elegant extensions is surrounded by a balustrade. The facade of the palace shines with gilding, impeccability of columns, openwork stucco molding.
The Hermitage kitchen with a through passage arch is often called the Red Gate. A small building immediately attracts the eye. Above its central portal rises a two-tier round turret with battlements, intricate attics crown the pediment, sculptures are installed in the corner niches.
The image of the white-blue Pavilion of the Grotto could easily become an illustration to the book of fairy tales. Rustic columns, numerous carved, stucco decorations, patterned lattices make the building surprisingly similar to a gingerbread house.
Among the architectural wonders of the landscape garden stands the Marble Bridge, erected over the canal between Swan and the Great Pond. The rotundas connected by a colonnade are mounted on a base composed of granite blocks. Two boardwalks with luxurious stone stairs lead to the bridge.
Monuments of Catherine Park
- Bus stop "Catherine Palace".
A story about the sights of the Catherine Park would be incomplete, without mentioning three monuments. These are monuments erected in honor of the brilliant victories of Russian weapons.
The defeat of the army of the Turkish Sultan at the Cahul River, Empress Catherine the Great ordered to immortalize the obelisk. For three hundred years now, the marble 10-meter pillar has reminded the Russians of the glorious Victoria of the Russian regiments under the command of P. Rumyantsev over the army of Galil-Bey, eight times the number of troops of the shining count.
The Chesme column is a tribute to the courage, courage of Russian sailors and the naval talent of their commander Count A. Orlov. A 22-meter pillar of pink marble is set on a granite pedestal in the center of the Great Pond. At the top of the column, a bronze imperial eagle is tormented by the Ottoman crescent, symbolizing the defeat of the Turkish fleet by the Oryol squadron in Chesmenskaya Bay in the summer of 1770.
Morea’s column is dedicated to another brilliant victory of the Russian fleet, won by the Mediterranean island of the same name. Attacking Turkish ships, which had a tenfold numerical advantage, Orlov's squadron managed to win by capturing about 6 thousand Turks. A pale blue pillar of Olonets marble is decorated with rostres of defeated enemy naval vessels.
- Address: st. Sadovaya, 22. Bus stop "Parkovaya Street".
The history of the palace, which is often called Vladimirsky, is very interesting. The construction of the building was led by the court architect A. Menelas. After completion of construction work in 1824, Emperor Alexander I granted the mansion to the influential nobleman V. Kochubei and his wife Maria Vasilievna. The monument of architectural classicism belonged to the Grand Dukes, after the revolution, sheltered Soviet structures under its shadow, and then the House of Pioneers. At the turn of the century, the young builders of communism were replaced by cadets, who ceded the building, in turn, to the employees of the registry office. Now, happy couples without five minutes of newlyweds climb the marble steps of a staircase guarded by stone lions to the antique portico of the entrance.
- Address: st. Moskovskaya, 25. Stop of transport "Moscow Street".
Pushkin Passage is the architectural dominant of the central part of the city. Symmetrical wings spread around the galleries diverge from the passage arch of the main portal of the building. The arched promenade arches are supported by paired Tuscan columns. The pediments of the building look very interesting, due to the large number of dormer windows of the attic, which serve as attics. In addition, the facades of the Gostiny Dvor attract attention with lush baroque decor.

Two decades later, a magnificent example of the pseudo-Russian style in religious architecture was seriously damaged in a fire, however, it was soon restored. Under the shadow of a prosperous temple, 11 especially revered Christian relics were kept. This, however, did not become an obstacle for the Bolsheviks. The property of the church was requisitioned, and the building itself was blown up in the summer of 1939. Atheists set up a park and erected a monument to Lenin on the site above which gilded domes once towered. Only after 70 years, local authorities decided to restore historical justice. The monument to the leader of the world proletariat has sunk into oblivion, and the erection of a new building has begun on the ruins of the foundation of the cathedral. In the summer of 2009, the five-domed church, restored according to the drawings of K. Ton, reopened the doors for parishioners.
