Vyshenky

The Dormition Church
The Dormition Church
Vyshenky Korop region, is a village (507 residents) located on the picturesque right slope of the Desna River Valley. Vyshenky (founded in 1679) feature fragments of the unique memorial of civil architecture of the 18th c.: the palace of commander, field marshal and president of the Malorussian collegium Count P. Rumiantsev-Zadunaisky. In the second half of the 18th c. here and in neighboring Chereshenky also owned by the count, he built several palaces and entertainment premises in classic, Turkish and Moldavian styles. Maybe they were intended to compensate the melancholic field marshal for the hardships of war with Turks. The probable designers of the palace were Russian architect V. Bazhenov and Ukrainian architect M. Mostsypanov, his pupil. The palace astounded everybody with its architectural romanticism and intentional splendor. The designers mixed Gothic and oriental motifs. The decorative semicircular towers, serrated stone pattern on roofs made it fortresslike reminding of the owner's military past. Unfortunately, only one-half of the palace (1787) can be seen today. The other half was taken apart by order of lord of the manor Sudienko, who purchased the farmstead in the early 19thc. After the Great Patriotic war there was the old people's home; now it is ?3 building of the children's home. On the east end of the main street there is the Dormition of the manor Sudienko, who purchased the farmstead in the early 19thc. After the Great Patriotic war there was the old people's home; now it is ?3 building of the children's home. On the east end of the main street there is the Dormition Church (1782-1787). Unlike the palace, it boasts severe classic forms. Such eclecticism is typical of Ukrainian rural residences of the 18th c.
