Palace-Estate of Admiral Chikhachev in Mytky

Mytky is a small village located in the Barskiy district of the Vinnytsia region. The main attraction of the village is the former estate of Nikolai Chikhachev – a picturesque palace built of yellow bricks.

Nikolai Chikhachev (1830-1917), an admiral of the Russian Imperial Navy, acquired this estate in the 1860s. Later, he built a palace for the construction of which materials were imported from England. Around the palace he planted a park (10 hectares) for his daughter Sophia.

Before the Second World War, the estate housed a school, during the war – a hospital. Today, the building is used as a school again. Mytky on Google Maps. Photos by: Maxim Ritus.
