Favorite thing: In the churchyard there is Rumyanzev's mausoleum... He was a son of the famous Russian Marshal (in Catherine II time) Rumyanzev-Zadunajskyj, to who the tsarina (queen) Catherine presented the areas near Moscow as a reward for his victory against the Turks in the end of 17th century. Rumyanzev's son wrote a low about freedom of peasantry, and actually created the Russian National Librerary (later Lenin's library, called as Leninka).
