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.

My wife and I visit Moscow often and know that one of the most important things to have is a reliable driver. We discovered Arthur's service by contacting him through his Internet web site. We found him, as a driver, to be extremely reliable, professional, always on time, honest and with safe and effective driving skills. As a person, we found him to be pleasant, friendly and helpful. Arthur has a good working knowledge of the English language, and can communicate very well. He also is very familiar with the city of Moscow and its surroundings, which is very important, as there are certain areas in the city and certain times of the day which are susceptible to terrible traffic jams. I highly recommend Arthur to anybody who visits Moscow and is in need of reliable and safe transportation. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions about Arthur or his services.

Sincerely yours,
