Perhaps,some have ever been in Mandrogi?It is a new private "estate" designed in the last decade in the old russian style known as Novgorod style-it is situated near to St Petersburg-it was built for tourists ,foreigners or not.

Thank you for sharing photographs of Mandrogi.  When we visited this charming "village" in July 2005, we were told that President Putin even has a dacha there (although no one could tell us if he had ever actually spent the night in it.)  In addition to the wonderful Russian architecture in Mandrogi, there are delightful examples of folk art, especially lovely wood carvings. Our visit  was like stepping back into 18th century rural Russia.  While the place is somewhat "touristy", we spent a pleasant day there.

I know the man who created, or rather, recreated Mandrogi.   It is now hugely popular with passing cruise ships.   It is a real-live, working village.   In the past ten years, so many children have been born to the villagers, that Sergei Gutsait is now planning on building a school.

There is an hotel.   There is also a mansion house which Sergei has earmarked for the president.

Sergei Gutsait is a remarkable man.   He is a true philanthropist.
