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.

We had an unforgettable visit to Moscow thanks to Arthur! He picked us up from the train station and took us to our hotel. Later he picked us up for an evening tour of the city. The next day we did a full day tour including the Kremlin and a car museum for our son. Arthur even helped us to purchase some Russian vodka to take home with us. All the photos that he took of our family throughout the tours was the icing on the cake!
