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.

I was seconded to Moscow for two years by my firm so my husband and I moved here 6 months ago. Arthur took us on a night tour of Moscow last week and although we have already been here for a while and visited some places, we felt like we saw Moscow for the first time! Arthur took us around and showed us so many different beautiful places we hadn't seen before! The tour was absolutely fantastic, Arthur is friendly and knowledgeable and was able to tell us a lot of interesting things about each place we visited. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend Arthur's services to anyone already in Moscow or planning to visit this beautiful city!

Thanks Arthur, hope to see you again soon!
