Tchaikovsky Research

Pleshcheyevo (Плещеево) was an estate in the Podolsk region of Moscow oblast, Russia.

During the composer's lifetime it formed part of the Podolsk district (Подольский уезд) in the Moscow province (Московская губерния) of the Russian Federation.

The estate was purchased by Nadezhda von Meck in 1882, and remained in her family until 1908. The area now forms part of the city of Podolsk (Podolsk Urban Okrug, Moscow Oblast).
