I invite you to visit an estate and house, designed by the famous Russian painter Vasily Polenov for himself and his family and built on the bank of the Oka river 130 km south of Moscow in 1892. You will love well preserved artist’s collections, the views from the house windows and from surrounding hills.
Polenov’s sketch of the painting “Christ and the Sinner” which gave money for the estate building.

The Trinity Church at Byokhovo was designed by Polenov and decorated with a help of his friends and family in 1904.
