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.

To all of you travelling to Moscow, surfing on Arthur's page debating on whether or not to hire his sevices, my only advice is DO IT! He will show you Moscow under a totally different angle.Not only will you get an in depth run down of what you are seeing,( as Arthur is very knowledgeable) but most of all you will have a fantastic human experience. being a tourist can sometimes get pretty lonely, (nose always burried in guide books, trying to desperately find your way in this maze of a city where the alphabet is not even the same).... But not with Arthur. With him you just have to sit back and enjoy. He will tailor the tour to your needs, sharing every single thing he knows about everything and anything.You will experience warmth, humour and true generosity on top of visiting a beautiful city.
I am recommending him a thousand times, as he will make your trip to Moscow an unforgettable priceless memory.
thank you arthur. You a truly a great man!
