those crows/birds give this pic an unbelievable amount of depth and mystery.

According to the legend Russian hussar colonel Vladimir Khrapovitsky had a bet with his friends that he would build a castle comparable to Louvre (Paris, France) with the park better than the Park of Versailles.

The colonel was a successful merchant and had all the resources to win the bet. The castle was built by Moscow architect P.S.Boytsov.

During the Soviet times there was a technical secondary school here. After several fires the building was abandoned.

The castle is still one of the most beautiful places of Vladimir oblast. The following [photos](http://imgur.com/a/WrqMW) were captured by[ ta-samaya-juli](http://ta-samaya-juli.livejournal.com/)
