The outstanding traveler, geographer, and public and state figure Peter Petrovich Semyonov-Tyan-Shansky (1827-1914) was born and spent his childhood on the Semenov family's patrimonial estate (Ryazanka). As an adult, he returned to the estate every year.
The estate house is surrounded by a landscape park founded in 1830s. The park has the largest diversity of species in Lipetsk oblast. Over 100 species of trees and shrubs, including 60 exotic species, grow here. A Siberian pine planted by Peter Petrovich is preserved.
Situated on the banks of the Ranova river, with its picturesque ravines and surrounding forests and parks, the museum blends in perfectly with the pristine natural, historical, and cultural environment.
The exhibits in the estate house describe the scientific and public achievements of the outstanding Russian citizen Semyonov-Tyan-Shansky and his family, which has given the country several generations of prominent scientists, writers, and public figures.The Tourist Center of Lipetsk / www.liptur.ru
