The château and park at Bogoroditsk in 1786 (watercolor by Bolotov)

It was founded in the second half of the 17th century[9] as a wooden fort. In the 1770s, the fort was demolished to make room for the palace of the Bobrinsky family. The main château, designed by Ivan Starov and partly destroyed during World War II, is adjoined by an English park, said to be the earliest in Russia outside St. Petersburg. Bogoroditsk was granted town status in 1777.[9] Bogoroditsk was occupied by the German Army from November 15 to December 15, 1941.
