20+ Pictures of Petersburg Cottages That Look Like Work of Art

It is believed that the first cottages appeared at the beginning of the XVIII century in the Petrine era. Of course, then they were fundamentally different from sites with small houses, where we now come to fry kebabs or work on the beds. At that time, these were estates near Petersburg, which the tsar granted (he gave, hence the word “dacha”) to his close associates for good service. This was done so that officials were always at hand with Peter and to settle in the suburbs of the young city.
