«Yegerskaya Sloboda» and Imperial Hunting

«Yegerskaya Sloboda» architectural ensemble in Gatchina is one of the first examples of standard housing in Russian history. This residential complex was built by architect Georg Gross in the mid-XIX century for the court imperial hunt. The author himself was entitled academician for the plan implementation. «Yegerskaya Sloboda» served as a source of inspiration for Russian artists: in particular, Alexei Savrasov and Vasily Vereshchagin worked there.
Yegerskaya Sloboda consisted of 60 buildings, including a hunting department, a clerical space, a school, a barrack for unmarried hunters and separate houses for married people, a bathhouse, a stable and other buildings. The complex adjoined a century-old forest where roe deer were kept and the house of the chief of the imperial hunt was located. Total of 25 houses have been preserved in the complex until now: classical Russian huts with gable roofs, carved shutters and casings. The Church of the Intercession of the Mother of God, built in the 1880s, successfully fits in with the ensemble of the Sloboda. This is a seven-headed temple with elements of Old Russian architecture — corbel arches and pilasters — in the facade decoration. All the decoration of the church was made in St. Petersburg, except for the icons made by a Moscow master.
