Kachanivka
 
Kachanivka is a very small village (48 residents), Ichnia Region, on the left bank of the Smosh River, neighboring the best known landowner's estate of the Left-Bank Ukraine founded in the first half of the 18thc. F. Bolgarin was the first to own it. Then court singer F. Kochenovskiy bought the manor; the name of the village comes from a transform of his last name. In 1771-1808, Kachanivka was owned by count P. Rumiantsev-Zadunaisky and his son, in 1808-1897 by the Tarnovskis. Later there was a succession of owners. During Soviet times there was child's house, sanatoriums and other medical establishments in Kachanivka. The manor on the outskirts of the village had two levels. On the upper plateau, there were the palace, two wings and water tower as a parade court, summerhouse of Glinka, two outbuildings, St. George Church and a wonderful park. The lower level comprised a landscape park with a cascade of twelve ponds, park sculptures, bridges and amphitheatre. The palace and wings were built by M. Mostsipan after K. Blank's design in 1771-1780; they were later repeatedly rebuilt. The Empire St. George Church was built on the side opposite the palace in 1817-1826. The water tower (1866-1898) was the last building of the ensemble. This utility structure enlivens the parade court. The Tarnovskis collected books and artworks, which make a considerable assortment in Kachanivka. They hosted K. Briullov, Marko Vovchok, M. Glinka,S. Hulak-ArtemovskyV. Zhukov-skiy, P. Kulish, M. Maxymovych, I. Repin, and T Shevchenko to name a few. In 1980, the historical and cultural complex of "Kachanivka" was created in the former estate.
