A little ruin in Moscow

Hi, this is my very first post here, my little contribution to the great comminity I've recently discovered and enjoyed :)
This set is made in Moscow, Russia, where I live. But the place itself is nearly outside the city and many people even do not know it exists.

The Bratzevo estate (nothing to do with Bratz, but with Russian word "bratez" = "little brother") was once owned by the aristocratic family and was a nice country home with a large park territory around it. Now the house that changed its owners after the Revolution 1917  is still there and still in use. In Soviet times there was some kind of rehab for military veterans, and now I guess there's a little sanitarium or hotel. But in the park there is another building with much worse fate. This little rotunda seems to be very neglected although I just don't understand why the present owners of the main house can't preserve it in a better condition.





The columns are in a rather bad state and covered with ugly graffity. There's really sickening feeling inside when you see a lot of crap and dirt where once has been a beautiful place for leisure and rest.



The closer view of the roof:



And the steps, worn and damaged by time and vandals:



If they will do nothing with it, this beautiful one will be totally dead. It is set so nicely upon the high hill and is seen even from the highway as a tempting landmark. And when you come there you see how poor its state is and how neglected the historical beauty may be...
