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 is the friend you haven't met yet in Moscow. He was very flexible in taking me to places I wanted to visit that aren't on the usual Tourist trail. He is extremely knowledgeable and always on time. He has a great sense of humor. He picked me up at the airport furthest away from City center and took me to the train, found my seat, put my luggage where it was supposed to go and checked to make sure all was well. His pricing is very competitive, his English is great. I loved his night tour of Moscow plus all the other stops we made. I am willing to give a verbal recommendation if someone wants to make sure that someone this good is actually available.
