(Скоро будет создан виртуальный тур по усадьбе)

Церковь во имя Пресвятой Богородицы Тихвинской построена по проекту выдающегося архитектора Н. Л. Бенуа в 1868 — 1871 гг., в имении графини Шереметевой селе Высоком, является одним из наиболее значимых архитектурных памятников Смоленской области. История храма, усадьбы и её владельцев тесно переплетены.

В советское время, во времена правления Хрущева, храм был закрыт и осквернен, долгое время использовался как пекарня, затем как место сборов молодежи для распития спиртных напитков и т. д.


Храм Пресвятой Богородицы Тихвинской остро нуждается в ремонте и восстановлении, с каждым годом здание церкви под влиянием внешней среды ветшает и разрушается. Если не прикладывать усилий к восстановлению, то через несколько лет мы можем лишиться жемчужины архитектурного ансамбля усадьбы Шереметевых Смоленской области.

Каким он будет теперь? ― зависит от нас с Вами.

This is an overview of Russia

Just in case you mistakenly heard that it was all ice and snow in Russia, take a peek at the Big Bikini Exposition. This is right on the river Moskva in Moscow!

Moscow has been the capital of Russia for almost its entire history. The exception is during the period of the Russian Empire, which lasted from 1721 until the Russian Revolution 1917. For these two centuries the capital was St. Petersburg. The Russian Empire was the second largest contiguous Empire in world memory; only the Mongol Empire had been greater.

Although you may not have heard of Sochi, on the Black Sea, they're building up quickly and hope to host the 2014 Olympics.

Other periods of Russian history include the Tsardom of Russia, from Ivan IV to Peter the Great, and the Grand Duchy (14th-16th centuries).

The earliest period of Russian history was ruled by the Novgorod Republic and Kievan Rus, which was the first Russian state dating back to 800AD in Kiev.

Modern Russia remains one of the world's superpowers. They launched the earth's second satellite, called Sputnik 1, and were the first country to put a human being into orbit around earth. (The first one is called the Moon.)

After the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia became a federal republic of 83 states.
