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 had an unforgettable visit to Moscow thanks to Arthur! He picked us up from the train station and took us to our hotel. Later he picked us up for an evening tour of the city. The next day we did a full day tour including the Kremlin and a car museum for our son. Arthur even helped us to purchase some Russian vodka to take home with us. All the photos that he took of our family throughout the tours was the icing on the cake!
