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.

Aurthur was our first introduction to Russia. We toured all day and evening until midnight. It was the perfect introduction to Moscow and Russia. His enthusiasm for giving us the best experience possible was fantastic. Arthur's photographic skills are excellent as well. We had a memorable trip with a memorable guide!
