Karabikha (Карабиха) (Yaroslavl)Description of Karabikha

Karabikha is a small village located 15 kilometers South of Yaroslavl. It is most famous as a residence of a famous native of Yaroslavl and great Russian poet Nikolay Nekrasov. He spent several months a year in this residence, creating some of the more memorable poems of his career. The main residence of Karabikha was constructed in 1720's and 1730's for Golitsyn noble family. At first it was a wooden mansion, but later it was replaced in stone. In 1861 Nikolai Nekrasov bought the estate, but he didn't keep it for himself. Instead he gave it to his brother Theodore who had a large family. Nevertheless Nekrasov spent a lot of time here annually. His son Konstantin Nekrasov was born in the estate. After the October Russian Revolution the estate was nationalized by a new government and in 1946 it was turned into a museum. Nekrasov became famous for his criticism of Imperial Russia  and sympathy for common people. Thus his estate became a symbol for the newly established Communist government and escaped destruction unlike many other historic mansions around Yaroslavl.
