Hunting Lodge - location
The hunting Lodge is not designed for the shooting process. There is no heating and water. Decoration mirror visually increases it, so it's hard to even imagine how small this room in reality. It can accommodate up to 80 people. This place is very loved by the connoisseurs, so even thoughts do not arise to move to another pavilion. Hunting Lodge is currently rented.
In the 18th century the southern part of the Neskuchny garden occupied the manor of Trubetskoy.

Even Pushkin with Natalie were frequent guests of the estate and in particular visited the hunting Lodge. All these details Voroshilov did not even know. While walking through the garden he quite accidentally stumbled upon the old building and realized that this place is ideal for meeting experts.
