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, thanks again for your prompt, suitable and informative attention. Our visit to Moscow was enhanced because of you. Our regret is that we had only a day to spend with you. Ettore Pedron

Arthur helped to make our time in Moscow a delight. He is most conscientious, prompt, well organized and fun to be with as well. But most important he is a very skilled driver, which is essential in the wild streets and highways of Moscow! Thanks Arthur.
