I am not joking! We were present here at the wedding of our freinds. On certain dates you can rent the main hall of the Kuskovo estate for the wedding ceremony. It has to be done the Perovo wedding registration authority. But it is doable! It is hard to put in words the feelings that we experienced in these halls.... More

Yes, it's not that easy to get to Kuskovo as it's not in the city center and you first have to take metro then a bus or a trolleybus, but it worth it. It's not only a beautiful palace but as well as green houses (which was recently refurbished), the Italian house, the Hermitage and the grotto. The park itself... More

Russians can build and live on a huge scale, no doubt about it. It was nice for the previous generation of rulers to invite famous italian, French, Holland, German, etc architects and artsy people to show there skills and build such masterpiece of architecheral wonder.

Very impressive estate at the east in Moscow. Very beautiful in summer and early autumn. I would recommend to go there by taxi, because this place is not so easy to reach by public tranportation. In summer it is always overcrouded during the weekends.

Visited it last weekend. It's a really pretty place which has also fallen into a state of mild disrepair. The park is cute and relatively small so you won't get lost. If you're only looking for a place to stroll amongst some greens, I guess you'd rather go to Tsaritsino as that one is free of charge to enter and... More

After we had visited museums after museums and churches after churches in St Petersburg and Moscow, this place was a refreshing change. There were many wedding couples taking pictures and hardly any tourists. We spent five hours here. Our tour operator booked us a guide to tour the palace. Frankly speaking, this was the least enjoyable part, not because the... More

This estate was built by Sheremetyevo a rich merchant who never lived here. Airport named after him. He built many buildings on the grounds of various architectural designs. The most inertesting is a grotto that the inside is entirely covered by seashells and glass. All of the frescos and artwork is done this way. The estate has magnificent grounds for... More

The park and the old palace are truly enchanting.  Nestled in front is an old lake with a small island.  In the back is an outstanding sculpture garden.  I advise to leave enough time, perhaps and hour or so, to make your way through the tour inside the palace.  Our visit gave a true taste of Russian history and culture. ...

We decided to visit the Kuskovo estate and stupidly relied on our guide book to get us there. Unfortunately this just mentioned a tube station, so off we went..could we find the Kuskovo estate after exiting the tube?? Well only after an hour of wondering around very lost. I would therefore highly recommend establishing your route before you set off.... More
