Historical site restored
Bragin park, where Dmitry the First is said to have declared his love for Marina Mniszek, is currently being restored
He became known as ‘the pretender’ Dmitry I. 15 meters of the castle brickwork — including the rampart — still survive and several huge oaks have been preserved in the village. Nevertheless, the ‘stone of love’ is the most remarkable place in the park, where, as the legend says, the future Dmitry I declared his love for the daughter of the Polish aristocrat — Marina Mniszek. She later became his wife and a prominent historical personage in
her own right.
