Voronina, a country estate (the village of Voronino, the Lomonosov district). The granges of Vysotskaya and Voronezhskaya located on the River Voronka were granted by Peter I to Prince A.M. Cherkassky, the Chief-Commissioner of St. Petersburg, in 1712. In 30 years ten villages have been already attached to the estate. In 1744 the estate as the dowry was passed to Barvara Alekseyevna, Cherkassky's daughter, who got married to Count P.B. Sheremetyev. In 1755 she built a wooden church in the neighbouring village of Globitsi. Since 1834 Life Guards lieutenant Prince Ye.P. Yengalychev owned the estate. In the 1830-1840s two-storeyed manor house with two wings and a mill were built, the park on terracas descended to the dammed up river. Under the Ikonnikovs, new owners from 1879, in the village of Globitsy a stone church was built (1879, the architect I,I, Bulanov). The estate planning is entirely preserved on present day. The manor house, stables, hothouses are ruined. On the glade in front of the house there is a planted in the 1840s surviving oak with trunks segregated like a bouquet.
