The Nechayev estate

Усадьба Полибино, Полибино

“Usadba Nechayevyh” or The Nechayev estate is the old noble estate, situated in the village of Polibino, Dankovsky District, Lipetsk Region. It’s currently under state protection as a former property of the Nechayev family. The estate consists of a palace, English park, regular gardens, ponds, and more. The most interesting sight of the estate is a tower which is built according to a project of an engineer Vladimir Grigoryevich Shuhov. It’s the world’s first diagrid hyperboloid structure designed in 1986 for the All-Russia industrial and art exhibition in Nyzhny Novgorod. After the exhibition closed, the openwork tower was bought by a leading glassware manufacturer and art sponsor, Yury Nechaev-Maltsov. It was relocated to his estate in Polibino where it has been preserved until now.
