The city's attractions

The city of Ramenskoye has a rich and interesting history. The sights, to which citizens are very sensitive, clearly illustrate how a small village has become a large modern city.

Manor Bykovo

From the once magnificent Russian manor house today, only a half-ruined palace, the majestic Vladimir Church and an abandoned park with ponds have survived. Previously, the estate was called Marino. It was built in the second half of the XVIII century. It was founded by its first owner - the Governor-General of Moscow MM. Izmailov. The project of the manor in the neo-gothic style was created by the most talented architect Vasily Bazhenov.


He was invited to build a palace, but the master managed to create an amazing architectural and park ensemble, which included a park, a temple, a winter garden, ponds, a grotto and the Hermitage. Now only the foundation has been preserved from the former palace, as well as the ramps at the main entrance, since in the middle of the 19th century, the new owner of the estate, Illarion Vorontsov-Dashkov, invited an architect from Switzerland and rebuilt the palace.

The new building, built of red brick, turned out to be luxurious: a two-story spectacular building with a tower. And today inside the refined decor in the English style is preserved.

Vladimirskaya Church

The temple is located in the former estate Bykovo. This is a real palace, made in the style of luxurious English castles. The facade of the building is decorated with twin bell towers and a snow-white stone staircase with an unusually beautiful balustrade.

The building is divided into two temples: the lower one, the Nativity of Christ, which is still active today, and the upper one, which was consecrated in honor of the icon of the Vladimir Mother of God.

The decor of the temple in the style of Russian Gothic is very beautiful. This can be seen, starting with the entrance frame, and ending with high sharp spiers. The interior of the temple is closer to the classical style: four groups of columns serve as a support for the arches, and in the interior decoration there is used artificial marble and wooden carving.


In 1937, the church, like most churches in Russia, was closed, and a sewing factory was placed in it. Only in 1989 the church was returned to the Russian Orthodox Church, large-scale restoration work took place in it, and the parishioners were again able to attend divine services.

Trinity Cathedral

This majestic five-domed stone church, built in 1852 at the expense of Princess Golitsyna, is impressive. Initially, the cathedral was built with three altars: consecrated in honor of the apostles Peter and Paul, St. Nicholas and the Holy Trinity. Much later, a refectory was added to it, which has two chapels, as well as a high bell tower, the author of which was Celer. These chapels were also consecrated: in honor of the Archangel Michael and the Assumption of the Mother of God. Today, the temple has a Sunday school and a charity canteen.


Trinity Cathedral has several revered shrines. These include the icon of John the Baptist, a list of the Jerusalem (miraculous) icon of the holy martyr Alexander (Parusnikov), who served in this temple, the icon of the Savior, as well as pieces of holy relics.

Borisoglebsk lake

The main natural attraction of the city, as well as its symbol - two silvery wavy lines, are located on the coat of arms of the city of Ramenskoye. The name of the lake is a derivative from the names of the princes Gleb and Boris. They were the first saints who were canonized by the Orthodox Church. For the first time this body of water is mentioned in written documents dated to the XVI century. The lake has an area of ​​almost fifteen hectares and more than twenty and a half meters in depth.


Palace of Sports "Borisoglebsky"

This sports multifunctional complex is located on the shore of the lake of the same name, in the city center, at ul. Makhova, 18. Recall the Ramensky index - 140100.

The main activity of the Borisoglebsky Sports Palace is aimed at the development and popularization of badminton. Nevertheless, the palace holds training sessions in other sports: basketball and volleyball, handball and futsal, boxing and combat sambo, wrestling and martial arts.

Near the complex there is a hotel complex for two hundred and fifty guests, the Saturn football stadium, a swimming pool, a volleyball court, a park area, and a hospital campus. During major competitions, firefighters, emergency personnel, and an ambulance team are on duty at the Palace of Sports.


The Borisoglebsky Sports Palace is a two-storey three-story building with an area of ​​twelve thousand square meters. It is equipped according to European standards. In the palace there are:

  • fitness room;
  • game room;
  • fourteen comfortable changing rooms with bathrooms and showers;
  • doping control room;
  • six rooms for coaches;
  • press center;
  • conference hall;
  • VIP-room with a separate entrance, bar, elevator and lounge.

City Park

It is located in the city center. The park includes Borisoglebsky lake and the surrounding green spaces. The park covers an area of ​​sixty hectares. Here, convenient footpaths are laid, playgrounds are built, numerous attractions are installed. In summer, the open-air dance floor "Lira" and several small cozy cafes are open. The park holds almost all city festivals and mass folk festivals.


Museum of military equipment

This is a very small museum, located in the open air in the city park. It consists of several fenced sites, on which samples of the latest military equipment are installed. The opening of the museum was a tribute to the memory of the soldiers who gave their lives on the fields of bloody battles in Afghanistan and Chechnya.


The open-air museum presents various artillery guns, armored personnel carriers, anti-aircraft missile systems, tanks. It is noteworthy that all samples of the equipment are allowed to touch with your hands and you can even climb them, which delights children.

Boris and Gleb Church

This is an old church, built on the lake by Count P. I. Musin-Pushkin on the site of a dilapidated wooden church. The church was built in 1725. It is consecrated in honor of the Holy Trinity. Adjacent to the church is a three-tiered bell tower, which was rebuilt at the end of the XIX century, and the refectory.

In 1929, the temple was closed, but not abandoned and turned into a warehouse. The local history museum began to work within these walls. The church was returned to the local community in 2007. In another four years, reconstruction was carried out and services were resumed.


Lake Pioneer

Man-made reservoir, created on the site of a wetland in 1961 for the needs of the instrument-making plant. Its maximum depth is about four meters, and the water level almost does not change. Unfortunately, the territory surrounding the lake today is not in the best condition. Previously, it was landscaped: the coastline was lined with stone. There was a playground here, and in the center of the lake itself was a fountain. Today it all fell into disrepair. But local residents believe the promises of the city authorities in the near future to restore order here.
