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.

We used Arthur for professional and business interpretation - but his abilities as a driver and as a photographer added lustre to his overall support.
Arthur really has a good command of the English language and dealt with many technical and business discussions with ease. His ability to navigate Moscow and get us to appointments on time was most impressive but it was the small things like his reliability, his obvious integrity, his good sense that made his contribution to our visit so marked. We didn't have to attempt to read Cyrillic signs for the Metro, or restaurants or streets , Arthur was completely in control of our movement through Moscow. He really was a marvel and we can't recommend him too highly. A nice man and a most professional individual.
