The estate of Kachanivka located on the Smosh River (Chernihiv oblast) occupies 700 hectares  where there are 15 buildings including the palace of the Tarnovskys, well-known patrons of arts who lived in Kachanivka for seventy years and made it famous. Actually the large estate today consists of a big palace, a beautiful park, a church, smaller houses and a cascade of ponds and lakes. The Kachanivka  amazing scenery was praised by the great Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko and by the artist Vasyl Shternberg. One of the Tarnovskys, Hryhoriy was elected the honoured member of the Russian Academy of Fine Arts for his financial support of artists. Such famous Ukrainian and Russian writers, composers, artists as Taras Shevchenko, Mykola Gogol, Marko Vovchok, Panteleymon Kulish, Ilya Repin, Mikhail Vrubel and Vasyl Shternberg considered him also a personal friend. Kachanivka used to be a summer residence for all of them. Some stayed there for several months and H.Tarnovsky didn’t ask for a penny. On the contrary the hosts created the atmosphere that inspired the talented guests very much and we owe Kachanivka for their wonderful works. It was there that Glinka composed the opera Ruslan and Ludmila, Repin painted The Zaporozhian Cossacks are Writing a Letter to the Turkish Sultan, Gogol read Taras Bulba to his hosts.

So the National Preserve at Kachanivka is one of the weekend destinations that will give you real aesthetic and intellectual pleasure and Prime Excursion Bureau Ltd. can be helpful.

Trostyanets
The State Trostyanets Park Preserve is a well-known monument of landscape park architecture of the middle of the 19th century created by efforts and funds of Ivan Skoropadsky. The last owner of the Trostyanets estate was his grandson, Pavlo Skoropadsky, the last hetman of Ukraine in stormy 1918-1919. Located in Chernihiv oblast, Ichnya district it occupies the area of about 205 hectares. The park was laid out in 1834, later changing its relief from plain to hillock (up to 35 m) but unfortunately since the end of the 19th cent. there started the period of decadence in the history of the park caused by the death of Ivan Skoropadsky in 1887 and subsequent socio-political events of the beginning of the 20th cent.

For almost two decades the park was part of the local state cattle farm, which didn’t contribute to its significance and beauty.

Nowadays the Trostyanets park is being preserved, ”cured” and restored by the efforts of the team of scientists, gardeners, park workers headed by the Ph.D. O. Ilyenko, a Ukraine patriot so much devoted to the Trostyanets Preserve. The task of us all is to preserve this pearl for future generations, which actually was the request of the founder written on the tombstone.
 
The Prime Excursion Bureau also invites you to visit the Sokyryntsy estate, the Trostyanets arboretum park founded by Ivan Skoropadsky.
