The estates of the richest people in Podillya - the family of the "sugar king" Tereshchenko:

There are many legends about the wealth of the Tereshchenko family - the owners of sugar refineries in the Russian Empire. For example, that the floor in their estates was lined with gold coins, but in order not to walk on the imperial face, they were placed on the edge. One can imagine how much gold would be spent on such a "parquet". Or that when the emperor was visiting the sugar refiners, he was rolled on a sleigh over sugar, like in the snow.

Palace in Chervon. Impressive, albeit dilapidated construction in the Gothic style with characteristic towers and lancet windows was built by the magnate A.Groholsky. And at the end of the XIX century. passed into the possession of sugar growers Tereshchenko.

After the wedding with Evelina Ganska Balzac wrote: "I married a single woman who loved, which I love even more than before, and will love until death ..."
