Magnates of different eras. Kiev - White Church - Mezhyhiria

Two parks, created by tycoons from different historical eras - the arboretum "Alexandria" of the Polish hetman Branitsky and the country residence "Mezhyhirya" of the Ukrainian president Yanukovych.

Comparative characteristics of two rich and grandiose parks:

- arboretum "Alexandria" on the bank of the river Ros;

- residence Mezhyhirya on the shore of the Kiev Sea;

- Branitsky Park, which spent about 4 million rubles;

- Yanukovych's dacha with an approximate cost of about 10 billion hryvnia;

- pavilions, lakes, waterfalls, grottos, garages, swimming banquet halls, helipads, artificial ponds;

- taste and lack of taste, refinement and greed, generosity and theft.

Just one day - and how many beautiful and interesting places, admiration, comparisons! How many photos and videos for Facebook and Instagram!

The park received its name in honor of the niece of Prince GA Potemkin, the chamber-maid of honor of Empress Catherine II, Alexandra Vasilievna Engelhardt. The arboretum was presented to her by the crown hetman of Poland, her husband, Xavier Branitsky. The park was built at the whim of the countess, which was impressed by the parks of European capitals. Pit was reflected on him, no less than 4 million rubles!

The hostess of the park had a good taste and spent these funds on arbours, lakes, waterfalls, grottos, sculptures. Also breathtaking when looking at the age-old oaks, majestic pines and American lime trees. In the territory of the park, apart from the Branicki residence, other architectural constructions have been preserved: the Tsar's pavilion (the guests of the royal family of Romanovs stayed here), the colonnade Echo, Ruins, the pavilion Rotunda, the Dance Pavilion, the Chinese bridge. 

The park "Alexandria" is decorated with exquisite vases, marble and bronze sculptures, decorative compositions from artificial earthy hills and boulders.
