Impressive former manor house outside just Moscow. It is possible to get there by public transport, although we took a private bus tour. The outside of the building needs some TLC, but the main house is very impressive inside and out. The guide took us through most of the beautifully decorated rooms. As we were there in winter, the outside... More

Huge beautiful green territory near northwest of Moscow. You can ride on bus in Tusinskaya bus terminal to this place. Approximately 25 minute ride. This estate is now a museum, famous with pocelain collection and jewelly/handwritten mid-age books. Very thick forest with oak, pine trees and rich ferns. Narrow path through forests, so fresh and excellent to walk. Very beautiful... More

We visited Arkhangelskoe on a rainy day, so maybe the rain added to the gloomy atmosphere. Maybe not. However I was a bit disappointed - after visiting Tsarskoe Selo in St. Petersburg, I expected something similar. The grounds are vast and beautiful and because of the good air there is actually spa on grounds. But the main building was closed... More

Very good place to have a long romantic walk. It is quite far from the centre of Moscow, you'll have to go by bus to the suburb risking to stay for some time in Moscow traffic but when you finally will come to the place you will be able to relax here on the lap of mother nature. Plus this... More

Arkhangelskoe Estate is a sprawling collection of palace buildings, gardens and grounds that is a joy to wander around in summer. If it's too hot in the city, the breeze that the river brings is nice to walk in and the views around the grounds are lovely.

The most fabulous of the Moscow area estates -- this one still commands an incredible view, and has noteworthy outdoor music events all summer. Highly recommended for your one trip outside the city of Moscow

First, don't expect to tour anything inside. We couldn't figure it out, and think you need to do an organized tour. But the grounds are impressive, and very nice to stroll through.

After the initial problems with getting there (learning the basic of Cyrillic is recommended), we were struck by the beauty of the place and the history you touched. A tranquil place (even with school classes visiting) with the extensive parks open for you to stroll about in. We didn't have time to see all the buildings, but our guide pointed... More
