The mansion of Mikhail Aseev in Tambov

The mansion of Mikhail Aseev, opened after restoration in the autumn of 2014, is one of the most outstanding sights of Tambov.

This luxury two-storey house is located in the most prestigious part of the city – in the park on the picturesque bank of the River Tsna (Gogol Street, 1).

Mikhail Aseev was the largest manufacturer in the region. The mansion was built in 1903-1904; the author of the project was Lev Nikolaevich Kekushev. It resembles rather a club than a private residence that absorbed and reflected the tumultuous social life and activity of the owner.

In Soviet times, the mansion was used as a cardiological sanatorium. Today, it is one of the objects of the museum-reserve “Peterhof.” Photos by: Pavel Labutin.
