To see what houses Tyumen magnates lived in at the turn of the 20th century, you can visit the Burkov’s house.
This wooden mansion, according to historians, is one of the top five landmarks of architectural heritage in Tyumen of the 19th century. The house is exceptional due to unique wooden carving, mentioned in Russian and Western catalogs.
The house is named after the merchant of the first guild Vasily P. Burkov, although he wasn’t its owner initially. A son of one peasant family bought the house from property owner Pospelova when he came to Tyumen from the village and luckily became rich.
Together with the mansion, Burkov purchased a neighboring building (28 Dzerzhinskogo St.), where he traded grain and flour. Later in the area of the current cardiology center, he opened a brick factory, the products of which were in high demand.
In the Burkovs family, there were ten children. By the way, even now, passing by, you can hear a young laugh in the courtyard of the manor house. Now there is the school of additional education for children.
