Barvikha - a place that makes the man

Sunday, 26 October 2008

BarvikhaPresidential Medical Center Sanatorium, railway station on Usovskoe direction of the Belarus railway, the village in the sanatorium at Podushkinskoe highway and village on the Rublevo-Uspenskoe highway - all this abundance of topographic objects is called by the proud name of Barvikha. So, the place that makes the man, elite land, and no less elite air, unique sights, and much more unique neighbors, architectural recherché and luxury of the preserved nature make the Barvikha village, which is on Rublevka.

The history of this truly royal dwelling is deeply rooted in the distant past. The village was being born over several centuries, and this birth (as of the settlement itself, and its name) was whimsical and capricious. Its story begins in the middle of the 19th century when General Alexander B. Kazakov became the owner of a neighboring Podushkino village. As a man of action and initiative, he started a business project for the construction and establishment of a dacha community.

Initially, this dacha community was planned to be built near Usovo, which Kazakov even managed to buy, but was soon forced to concede to the Palace agency. Having abandoned his plans related to Usovo, Kazakov proceeded to implement them at a new place - where the Zvenigorod road (modern Uspenskoe highway) crossed Samynka brook, flowing into the Moskva river. So the Barvikha village appeared. The daughter of the owner with her second husband built a famous Meyendorf estate, the brickworks, laid out a park, renovated ponds.

In 1918, Lenin himself often visited Barvikha to enjoy the fresh air and to rest from his righteous work. It was then that the resort-nomenclature era of the village started. In March 1935 the USSR Ministry of Finance resort was organized in the castle building Barvikha, where in different years Mikhail Bulgakov, Irakliy Andronnikov, Dmitry Shostakovich, Sergei Korolev, Igor Kurchatov, Luis Corvalan, Yuri Gagarin and others rested and were treated. Mikhail Bonch-Bruevich's dacha was located near the village. A famous writer Alexei Tolstoy lived at one of the state dachas from 1938 to 1945. Then came Khrushchev, Brezhnev and ... Yeltsin.

The first Russian president has turned Barvikha into a fashionable trend. What to see? First of all, you should see a site of the first century AD, known as the Prince Serebryaniy estate. Then, be sure to try to get into the Meyendorf castle (they say, that some succed). The castle was built in 1874 on the draft of a remarkable Moscow architect Petr Boitsov. The Gothic style building struck by the wealth of its internal decor. Interestingly, that the scaly roofs covering is not subject to time and remains for several centuries already without any repair. According to the legend, the castle has an underpass to the Moscow river, which its eccentric mistress often used in the past. A wonderful park that starts right from the front porch was the glory of Meyendorf baroness castle. Today one can see here the mighty Ussuriysk cedars, California maples and the famous cork oak brought from China.

What to buy? Of course, a house! Or at least a plot, as there are a lot of opportunities - new cottage villages Barvikha Club, Barvikha Hills, etc. are constantly being built and handed over. Where to go? A place recommended to visit is the Barvikha Luxury Village. A special Barvikha phenomenon is that the luxury shops have appeared here before the ones in the capital. The best trademarks of the world are waiting for you in the Luxury Village - Armani, Yves Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney, Sergio Rossi, Boucheron, Gucci, Ermenegildo Zegna, Tod's, Prada, Brioni, etc. With each new season, the shops grow more and more in number. Luxury brands are competing with each other - who would arrange a more luxurious presentation, to whom more celebrities would arrive for the opening, whose guests would shine brighter...
