Among the majority of regions where I was able to visit, the Kaluga region stood out among others with incredibly beautiful places and historical sites. The sights of Kaluga and the Kaluga Region are really impressive. Its incomparable nature is simply impossible to admire, not to mention the majestic temples and ancient fortresses. The Kaluga region is rich in sights and various tourist routes, which I will gladly introduce you to today. I will not bypass those places where you can look with children.
Why Kaluga Region? And all for its magnificent nature, carefully preserved in the territories of numerous national parks, where you can watch amazing waterfalls, flocks of birds and visit wildlife sanctuaries. And what is worth visiting the beautiful places of the Central Russian Upland, which, for good reason, beckon to this region. I will try to tell you what you can see in the Kaluga region, highlighting its best sights, as well as which places are worth visiting by car.
I managed to visit a unique historical place with the preserved flavor and spirit of the old times - the Vorobyevo estate, located in the village of the same name, not far from Kaluga. The building dates back to the beginning of the 20th century and was erected by the Swedish engineer Gunnar Svenson. The estate is represented by a quaint two-story mansion with an attic, several porches, balconies, terraces and a corner tower. The interior is complemented by a variety of window shapes: arched, stepped, oval, narrow and rectangular. The attic has a lot of intricate, like oriental details. The exterior design of the building's façade is equally impressive. It successfully combines several finishing and textured techniques, which can be traced in ceramic tiles, plastered "under a fur coat" areas, smooth surfaces, where wooden inserts and metal forging fit perfectly.
The bank of the Techa River surprised me with the huge complex of the Stepanovskoye estate, dating from about the 18th century. Despite the fact that she has not been spared for years, the estate is still interesting. In the post-revolutionary years, the estate was nationalized, which led to the removal of all the paintings from it, and a little later a sanatorium and medical institutions were located in the building. What has survived dates back to the end of the 19th century and is impressive: the main house, outbuildings, the manor park and the entrance gate. The main house is heaped with balconies and columns, and the interior decoration can be traced to a variety of interior styles.
Among the outbuildings stood out the house of the manager and the "Arsenal" - the pavilion where the boats were kept by the river. The gate was attracted by sculptures of deer on pylons. The park is probably the best-preserved object of the estate with a linden alley and ancient plantations, which are over 120 years old.
If possible, visit the following architectural solutions of the area:
I really liked the village of Przemysl in the Kaluga region, and among its attractions I was especially interested in the Museum of the White Stork. It was interesting to see the exposition dedicated to the history of the origin of storks. I learned about where and how they were settled throughout the country and the region, their migration and much more about the life of these amazing creations. It was here that I first heard about some facts about storks.
