Ushkova House: mansion as a witness of love

Ushkova House in Kazan is an eclectic mansion of the beginning of the XX century, a real encyclopedia of architectural and interior styles. It was named in memory of Zinaida Ushkova, the daughter of a university professor, whom merchant Ushkov made a proposal of marriage and gave her this luxurious house on their wedding day.

There are stucco ornamentation, columns, bay windows, wrought-iron balconies and a turret on the facade of the Ushkova House. Inside - perfectly preserved decoration in a variety of styles from neo-Gothic and Empire style to Rococo and Moorish style. Exquisite parquet floor, stucco ceilings, oak walls, stained-glass windows by the French expert Champigneulle as well as a unique fireplace made of black marble. The top of the interiors is the garden grotto on the top floor. Now the National Library of Tatarstan is located in the Ushkova House. Therefore one can get inside and admire the unique redecoration and antique furniture only if guided.
