Trubnikov Bor, a country estate in the Tosno District. The village Duntsin Bor located near the roat from Moscow to St. Petersburg was owned to the Trubnikovs family for a long time, so it was named Trubnikov Bor. Under D.V. Trubnikov who inherited the estate in 1825, the estate was completely rebuilt. The Mirror Pond was enlarged, the new wooden manor-house was built on the pond shore. A part of the marshland was drained with canal system and a new park was laid out there, between the Zerkalny (Mirror) and the Bolshoy Ponds. Seven artificial small islands were made in the Bolshoy Pond. From 1883 the estate of Trubnikov Bor was owned to the new owner Prince N.D. Bagration-Mukhransky who continued to equip the estate with modern amenities. The group of wooden service constructions of classic style with porticos and fluted columns was intacted in the 1920s. During World War II the estate constructions were ruined. The Park planning is traced till present days.
