Grotto near pond 2

Grotto near pond 2

Here is one more picture of the very pretty building, Grotto, located in Kuskovo Estate. This photo I made at one perfect summer day in 2005. I have already photos of this building in my Moscow photo gallery which I took in 2004, but here I tryed to make something different. Hope you enjoy this view!

Here is the information from my previous photos about this building:

The Grotto (1755-61) by F. Argunov was a resting/cooling place for guests on hot summer days. It is designed to seem like an underwater cave with its sea shell decorations and greenish color. Nowadays the Grotto pavilion has the unique collection of porcelain, antique ceramics, faience, majolica, glass, and crystal from the West Europe and Russia.

I had a great time with Arthur. We went out one night to photograph Moscow at night, and we spent an entire day together touring around.

Arthur speaks fluent English and it is very easy to converse with him on most any topic. I grew up in the US during the Cold War and Arthur did the same in Russia. It was fascinating to compare our impressions as we both saw how much the world has changed.

One of my goals on our day tour was to find a specific gift for my wife. Arthur made it his mission to help me locate the present.

I would recommend Arthur to anybody visiting Moscow without hesitation.
