I highly recommend this estate for a glimpse into C18 palace life. Wonderful garden pavillions. Interiors are full of interesting objects, including paintings by serf artists. Go if it is snowing. There is a slege pulled by horses and Russians are enjoying with their families.

Estate is well preserved and kept. Nice pond and park - very popular for newly-wed photo sessions and American Independence Day celebration. Interesting ceramics and fine china museum. Popular place a bit off the beaten path. Recommended for history buffs.

If you wish to go here you need to plan it properly as it is off the beaten track and some way from a metro station. Having said that it is a beautiful and scenic place that is very tranquil and peaceful. It is set in a large country type park that has lovely buildings including the palace gardens, a... More

Perfect place for pre-wedding and tourists alike. Located in Moscow, Kuskovo estate resembles the palaces in St Petersburg, though not as grand. The mansion has a vast and lovely garden, including the greenhouse. Dominated with rose and yellow walls, the mansion and its complex are still relatively well preserved, but one can see signs of deterioration in the furniture and... More

Cozy place to have relax, to have walking or cycling, to be near the nature but in the city. Alongside with park exploring there is the nice palace where it is possible to dive in the history.

This Estate was built on a whim. It is largely made of paper and looks amazing! the grounds are stunning and the palace is well worth seeing. It is a little difficult to get to. You need to get the metro and then a bus. The day I went, it started out sunny and soon turned to rain. The palace... More

Gorgeous place to feel the history. Kuskovo is the summer residence of the Sheremetyevs: huge territory with parks and gardens as well as several museums. If you are lucky with the weather, definitely take a stroll along the main pond. If it's overcast: no worries - the main mansion is a very nice place to check out the everyday life... More

Has good guides, the palace and the gardens are very well preserved, and museum hosts a lot of events, even the 4'th July. Has a hint of antique epoque - but that's the reason why you have to visit it!
