Liublino estate

Liublino estate is located almost in five minutes from the metro station Volzhskaya in Moscow. It was built on the bank of Liublinsky pond by a Moscow rich man, never married and a true original - A. Durasov. The estate is one of the unique areas of modern Moscow that was first mentioned in XVI century sources. In winter it is especially beautiful.


The Liublino ensemble that has by a miracle survived to our days occupies a peculiar place in Russian culture. The architectural planning of the palace, a combination of the cross and the circle, is unusual for Moscow and Moscow region and makes it kin to the projects of Jean-Francois Neufforges, a XVIII century French architect. A later legend explains such non-standard planning of the building by its resemblance to the Order of St. Anna. The main entrance to the palace is located on its south-eastern side. The paintings were made by G. Scotti, a popular artist of the time.

The nowadays life of Liublino complies with the traditions of the past. As a long time ago, classical music and poetry can be heard in the palace; the halls often become concert venues. Exhibitions are located on the attic storey while permanent expositions have found their place in the halls.
