Small architectural forms of The Palace Park Ensemble "Maryino" of Prince Bariatinsky

This article is about  restoration and reconstruction of small architectural forms of The Palace Park Ensemble "Maryino" of Prince Bariatinsky, Kursk region. Design, reconstruction and restoration works were carried out by PROF PROJECT which includes the architectural department and the planning-and-design office under the head of Solovieva A.V. as a project manager and an architect.
From the begining of XXI century Palace Park Ensemble "Maryino" is a sanatorium (Property Management Department of President of Russian Federation). The Federal state budgetary institution "The sanatorium Maryino" is under the supervision of the Property Management Department of President of Russian Federation and a capital construction object in accordance with Presidential Decree 541, issued on October 29, 2015.
The Palace Park Ensemble "Maryino" was built at the begining of  XIX century according to a project of Kursk's architect Carl Ivanovich Gofman. The ancient noble family Bariatinsky dates back to the legendary prince Ruruk. Maryino was called in honour of beautiful Princes Maria Fedorovna Bariatinsky the Prussian Countess and wife of Prince Ivan Ivanovich Bariatinsky. The Palace was meant to be the symbol of the greatness of Princely sort of Bariatinsky. It was in the reign of the Russian tsar Pavel the first.
The Bariatinsky Palace is a three-storied building with three differentiated parts of main building and two large single-storied outbuildings. The buildings are situated in a great scenery park with magnificent flower beds, round and oval lakes with islands and linked with the help of several bridges. Rotunda is located at one of them and the Lutheran Kirche is on the next one.
The aesthetic guide for visual conception of the Palace interiors  became well-preserved examples of Russian architecture and art: historical interiors of russian palaces, genre paintings, engravings, etching, book illustrations with elements of interior decoration, furnirure, lightings and scenes of daily and holyday life. I also used surviving archived materials concerning the building of the Palace, reference books, artistic and academic books and literature of domestic and foreign classical writers relating to the lifestyle of russian nobility.The chronological range of monitoring period covers the full range from second part of the XVIII century and concluding to the end of the XIX century.
