Herculaneum Large Woman
After restoration of the palace a new sculpture "Herculaneum Large Woman" in antique clothes - a copy of an exhibit of the Dresden gallery was erected on a roof of the Palace.
In 1711, workers digging a well in the small town of Resina, Italy, found three mostly intact marble statues of draped women. Heralding the discovery of ancient Herculaneum, the sculptures are known today as the Large and Small Herculaneum Women. Locals call the statue "Herculanjanka" and love her very much.

Lyublino Estate History
Favorite thing: This ancient Russian residence is a fantastic complex, directly related to all of the Russian culture ancestry. The construction of this architectonical jewel, build initially as a village town and nowadays being part of Moscow’s metropolitan area, can be dated back to the XVI century.
The history of region Lublino takes the beginning from times False-Dmitry, which with mutinous polish soldiers and adjoined to him Kazaks went on Moscow just through these grounds. Under the legends, after a campaign Kazaks master under housing accommodation wild fields and woods. Already in XVIII century a small country Lublino was established there, which belonged to prince Prozorovsky. Soon he sold it to a real councilor of state Nikolay Durasov.
The Lyublino Residence (that held the name of the village and today is the name of the neighborhood where it stands) how it stands today, is the same at it stood at the beginning of the XIX century when constructed by a famous Russian architect and afterward bought by Nikolay Durasov, a rich landowner.
Along the years, the house has been the perfect resting, and above all, living place for important Russian figures of state and foreigners of noble stance. The Manor may be considered as a perfect example of Classical architecture inserted in natural and picturesque scenery.
In 1917 a railway workers' club was established in the recently vacated manor house, and in 1937 a leisure park was opened to the public on the estate.
