Neskuchny Garden

Neskuchny garden - the «middle» part of the park, which is usually called historical.

It was founded in 1728 when the Nikita Yurievich Trubetskoy bought land on the territory close to Kaluzhskaya Tollgate (currently Gagarin square) from archimandrite Zaikonospasskiy German for 300 rubles.

The construction of Trubetskoy’s manor was some sort of a diplomatic move - each weekend, each occasion (especially in summer), Trubetskoy was throwing the parties, balls and celebrations. Most notable, influential and wealthy people were invited. Guests were personally selected by Nikita Yurievich Trubetskoy. Usually the number of guests varied from 100 till 200 guests, but sometimes the figure raised to 300, 400 or even 500 people. Receptions at Trubetskoy’s manor were held in quite a standard way and always included dinner, card games, dancing, walks around the garden and galleries and other types of amusements.

It’s indeed N.Y. Trubetskoy to whom the Nescuchny Garden gained its popularity in 18th century, primarily thanks to the circles of nobility and major industrialists. Many rich, influential people bought the land here and built their manors. As a result, in the second half of the 18th century on quite a large territory from Krimsky Val to Vorobyovo Village (the contemporary viewing platform) there were over 15 various manors belonged to noble families, that left an imprint on the history of Neskuchny Garden, Moscow and around Russia. The manor’s owners and territories were changing quite significantly.

It is considered that the title «Neskutchny» (cheerful) the garden got also thanks to Nikita Trubetskoy. During the receptions the duke gave his personal attention to the activities for the guests so that no one would get boring. This is how the guests started to name the manor «Neskuchnoe» and as a result the garden was also nominated as «Neskuchny».
