5 MAGNIFICENT abandoned Russian castles

These beautiful abandoned gems of Russian architecture will take your breath away.

When you think of a Russian countryside, you probably don’t imagine gothic-styled castles. But here they are – proud, stunning, and unjustly forgotten…

This beautiful architecture came to Russia thanks to the Russian architects of the 19th century who visited Europe and got inspired by medieval castles and French-style palaces.

And often, it wasn’t just a poor imitation, but a real thing.

See for yourself.
