We invite you to see the jewel of the architectural art of the 18th century, Kuskovo Estate. It is one of the oldest country estates in Moscow. Nicknamed the Moscow Versailles Kuskovo belonged to one of the most influential Russian family, the Sheremetevs, for over 300 hundred years until the Russian Revolution.
 
In the 18th century Kuskovo attracted Russian Nobility as an excellent place for entertainment. It was famous for its balls and theatre. While wandering around the estate we’ll plunge into the festive atmosphere of the past. Kuskovo is famous for its gardens. It is  the only regular French park to have survived in Moscow. There are ponds, canals, and Russian and Italian sculptures.

The palace in Kuskovo was built entirely from wood.  The interiors include a silk-wallpapered card and billiard room, a mirrored dining hall, a tapestry room as well as a magnificent ballroom. During our tour we’ll also see the unique collection of 18th century Russian and European paintings.
 
The orangerie in the estate was never used as a place for growing any plants. It actually served as a large banquet hall for guests. Today it houses a splendid ceramic collection from different countries dating from antiquity up to present days.
