Kuskovo Estate

Kuskovo Estate

The Kuskovo Estate, nicknamed the Moscow Versailles due to its formal French gardens, is a perfect example of an 18th century Muscovite country residence. The history of the estate dates back to 1715, when Tsar Peter the Great awarded the village of Kuskovo to Boris Sheremetev, a Russian general who excelled at the battle of Poltava and who decided to build a summer residence there. The Sheremetyevs were one of the wealthiest and most powerful families in Russia and the estate was used by several generations of the family.
Nowadays, Kuskovo estate is an official museum of Russian architecture, ceramics and sculpture.

Arthur was a fantastic help to my parents and my mother in-law when they visited Moscow. My mother in-law has some mobility issues and Arthur could not have been more helpful in assisting with the wheelchair, ensuring that guards opened gates so they could drive into the red square and Victory Park, and that my mother in-law was able to see as much of Moscow as anyone else. My parents also had a great time and enjoyed Arthur's knowledge of the history of Moscow, as well as his excellent photography skills. Thank you Arthur!
