Many showbiz or sports stars are happy to showcase their property on their personal pages of social networks or invite famous journalists, combining interviews with home reviews. But the information about the real estate of Russian businessmen who consistently appear in the Forbes ratings, as a rule, remains closed. The beneficiaries of transactions are often legal companies or unknown relatives of businessmen.

And yet, we found 8 houses in Europe that belong to the richest Russian businessmen. Abramovich, Deripaska, Fridman - these names are known to almost everyone in the world and are usually paired with the prefix "Russian oligarch". Traditionally, the sphere of interests of the Russian super-rich is the UK, namely London and the suburbs. Even Mikhail Fridman, who has repeatedly stated that real estate is a liability that requires fixed costs, discovered the most that is an asset in the historic estate in Hamstead. They say that even after millions in investments in restoration, the market value of the estate will only increase. Oleg Deripaska is becoming more and more cautious when buying or selling property in Europe (sanctions are affecting), but we can still admire his beautiful villa in St Tropez and celebrate the sale of a luxury mansion in the UK by a businessman's relative.
If London purchases can be more closely related to capital investment, then the acquisition of a medieval Scottish estate by Vladimir Lisin - number two on the Forbes list - is a purchase for the soul. They say that Lisin is an avid hunter, therefore he will definitely manage the huge hunting grounds wisely. Rumors say that the ancient 17th century castle is inhabited by ghosts, but such a highlight will only increase the price of this extravagant real estate in Scotland.
Often, it is the richest people set new trends in the real estate market in Europe. So, let's continue to observe what investment trends will be chosen by the most successful people in the new year 2021?
