Rukavishnikov Mansion

The Rukavishnikovs were the richest family in Nizhny Novgorod in the second half of the 19th century. They were wise enough to manage their funds properly as they were raising outstanding pieces of architecture that are ornamenting the city until today. The hallmark of the Rukavishnikovs’ heritage is their mansion on Upper Volga Embankment. Ivan Rukavishnikov dwelled on it: “Let there be a palace. A palace of 100 rooms. And a hall of two rows of windows. And marble stairs, second to none. And let it cost a million, not less… May the city gasp in delight.” The creators were inspired by the Italian palazzo style, so Rukavishnikov Mansion is rich with details: telamons propping the balconies of the second floor, dazzling chandeliers, playful cupids, gorgeous stuccowork, glowing paintings, marble stairs. Once you are inside, you can study in-depth the life of Russian millionaires of the 19th century. Luxurious authentic interiors serve as a background for the unique evidence of the past epochs – a collection of expensive textile, jewellery, accessories, toys, and other treasures.
