This house formerly was the residency of the Chief Judge of the Left-bank Ukraine. Now it is the historical museum of Baturin.
There a well-known Ukrainian statesman, Vasiliy Kochubey and his family lived. In 1704 Kochubey's 20-year-old daughter, Motrya fell in love with 63-year-old hetman Ivan Mazepa. Her feelings were returned, but Mazepa didn't ask for her hand as such marriage would have been considered incestuous because Mazepa was Motrya's godfather.
The museum is one of the six main architectural monuments of the National Heritage Reserve “Hetmans’ Capital” in Baturin, and its headquarters. Other architectural monuments are the following:
۩ Voskresenska church
۩ Hetman Rozumovsky’s palace and park
۩ Pokrovska church
۩ Baturinskiy Nikolo-Krupitskiy monastery

Fine classical architecture, and of course the red roofpans stand out in the scene!
A pleasant location in the middle of the park, with the building framed by majestic old trees...
Seems like a fine summer day with great light, that renders lush vivid colours!

This is a nice shot of this fine architecture. The brightly colored building stands out nicely against the trees and blue sky. The addition of the statue in the foreground gives the photo a nice sense of depth. The trees provide nice framing for the scene. There seems to be a lot of headroom in this shot, maybe cropping out some of the sky would give the scene more of a panoramic appearance.

Ciao dear Sergiy,
Beautiful villa, perfectly restored, captured in a bright day of sun. The composition of the photo is really pleasant, with colors well saturated and a perfect sharpness. Interesting the history of the girl that was in love with a 63-year-old-man, to demonstration that the love doesn't have age! :-)
Ciao, have a nice Friday!
