This is where the heart of ancient Vyksa is to be found, in the estate that used to belong to the Batashev brothers that founded this town and the steel works and built the estate in the final quarter of the 18th century. In 2006-2009, the complex underwent a reconstruction that restored it to its prior architectural glory. In front of the manor is the nice-looking Metallurg Square and the path to the Upper Vyksa Pond.
The former manor houses the Vyksa Steel Works history museum displaying household items, artifacts, and documents preserving the memory of many generations of town residents. Note the black metal stairs. They have been there almost since the time the estate was built.
