The Volyshovo estate of the Stroganoff family lies 40 kilometers south of the ancient city Porhov, an ancient 12th century fortress in the Pskov region. This estate belonged to Stroganoffs from the 1850s, when the family built a main house, farm buildings and stables, as well as a classical temple in the estate park. Nearly all buildings have been preserved but they are in a state of decay. Also, areas of the estate park still exist today.
