Denis Davydov Estate
This estate was named after poet and 1812 great patriotic war hero: Denis Davydov. He bought this empire-style mansion from the 18th century in 1835.
For two years, famous figures of Russian poetry frequently spent time in that house. The glorious military past of lieutenant-general had it nicknamed “house of the supporters’ leader”.
Forced to sell in 1837, Denis Davydov wrote a famous advertisement in verse that his friend, Alexander Pushkin, published.
On the occasion of the one hundred and fifty years of the Russian victory in 1812, a commemorative tablet in honor of Denis Davydov was unveiled in 1962.
