The Psel
The Psel
Nyzy, Sumy Region, is a small settlement (2,900 residents) on the left bank of Psel River Valley. The Nyz Settlement (so it was named up to the mid-19th c.) is known ever since 1662. Maybe, the name proceeds from its untraditional location on a high floodplain in the river valley In 1841, a sugar-refinery was built here; in soviet times a low-power hydroelectric station was constructed here. There is a one-story manor, in which Peter Tchaikovsky spent his summertime in 1871-1879. Here he wrote his opera Boots, which won him the first prize of Russian Musical Society in 1875. The picturesque bank of Psel and wonderful park inspired the composer writing his Second and Third Symphonies and, possibly, opera Eugene Onegin. His memorial room is now in the high school in the former manor. Near the building there is the monument to Peter Tchaikovsky (1967, sculptor M. Lysenko). At the park entrance there is a restored church built in the second half of the 19th c.
