What awaits you
Modern, Art Nouveau, Art Nouveau in Saratov style Each building will show one of the facets of the architectural style: interest in European Gothic, and the search for their roots, and the desire to find inspiration in distant Egypt. The walk will connect us with the key figures of Russian Art Nouveau - Fyodor Shekhtel and Savva Mamontov. In parallel, you will learn about two original Saratov architects - Semyon Kallistratov and Petr Zybin, who created their own versions of Art Nouveau. We will talk about their special vision and approach, as well as about the owners of the buildings - a Russian merchant, a fashionable lawyer and a German industrialist, whose lives have reflected the fate of the city
