Kotly, a country estate (the village of Kotli, the Kingisepp district). Since 1730 the grange of Kotelskaya belonged to the Barons Albrekhts. All buildings including a Lutheran and Orthodox churches were wooden. In the early 19th century under I.L. Albrekht the estate was enlarged and replanned, pareks were laid out and two-storied stone mansion with the big sixstyle portico was built in the 1820s presumedly according to the project of the architect A.I. Melnikov. The Albrekhts' family burial-vault made of limestone plates was located in the park since the 18th century. The service -yard was surrounded with limestone wall, a gatehouse and garden pavilion were built near the gate. The estate planning and stylistic unity of its buildings made the estate one of the most remarkable in the gubernia. By invitations of the owners in 1827 the painter O.A. Kiprensky visited the estate and worked there. In the late 19th - the early 20th century estate was owned by A.I. Mamontov, N.A. Sapozhnikova and her daughter O.A. Meisner. In 1882-1888 the Church of St. Nicolas the Wonderworker was built. On our days the mansion and service constructions have been intacted in part.
