Quite often with the village Pervomaisk there is confusion associated with its historical and Soviet name. Zawisze manor complex appeared in the place Kukhtichi, which was located on the territory where today the agricultural lyceum is located. However village Kukhtichi also exists and was still useful before the construction of the estate (about 4 kilometers north of Pervomaisk). So if you want to see the estate, then you need to go to Pervomaisk.

Outbuilding Zawishey in the village of Pervomaisk

From the estate of the 19th century, which was built by representatives of the Zawisze family, 2 outbuildings, partly a landscape park, a water mill, a stable and some other outbuildings have been preserved.

The main part of the estate - classical palace, has not reached our days, it can be seen in the picture Napoleon Orda. In form and architecture, it is very similar to the side wings, only larger.

Another interesting object on the territory of the estate - Calvin collection, which Zawiszy used as a family chapel at the beginning of the 19th century.

Later, under Jan Kazimir Zawisz, who was a fairly well-known archaeologist and explorer, representatives of the family were buried in “Uzda pyramid".

It is believed that the construction of the estate was carried out by Kazimir Zawisz, and the last owner was his great-granddaughter - Maria Magdalena. In 1919, she lost the right to reside and own land, after which she left for Switzerland, to the convent of the Dominican Order.

The Zawisze estate was probably rebuilt into a residential building, which is located between 2 outbuildings. There is another version that the building burned down completely, and a new house was already being built on its foundation.

Before entering the territory of the former manor complex there is something like a checkpoint, but usually everyone is let through without problems.

If you are in these parts, I also recommend to go to Stankovo.
