Baron von Dervis Castle

Print
The ex-estate of S.P. von Dervis, a son of a famous builder of the Moscow-Kazan railway, is situated in the centre of village Kiritsy.

Architect Fedor Shekhtel created an amazingly beautiful ensemble, which is difficult to refer to any certain style. The towers, the window opening,  the arches, the ladder, going down to the pond make the house looking whether like a castle of the Sleeping Beauty or like a mysterious abode of the owner of Axakovs «Vermilion Flower». In 1947 some episodes of movie Cinderella were filmed here. The palace combines different styles: Gothic, Pseudo-gothic, Mauritanian, Russian Classical etc.
