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!

Very pretty estate, once owned by famous Sheremetev family, one of the oldest nobility in Moscow. Quite nice lake and great garden. Good family mansion, but in a need of some restauration. Location is rather far from the nearest metro station so you'll need some good 15 min walk, at least. Very good place and park to see, but there... More

That place we visited after seeing almost all most important sites in Moscow. It is located toward the east from the center of russian capital. The road that leads to Kuskovo Estate is not of the first rank as that one to the Izmaylovsky Park, but after awhile our intention to get there was fulfilled. The Kuskovo Estate was the... More

Don't recommend to come here if you're not a huge fan of this stuff. It doesn't really worth the time getting there. I've seen some foreigners in Kuskovo and they were kind of disappointed, pretty much as me. In March it was dirty and freezing outside, and it was dark inside the palace, because there was no electricity.

Slightly away from the normal tourist map and also quite a distance from central mosow, this place takes a little effort to reach. We reached here via the Perovo Metro stop and then taking a bus to reach this place. A beautifyul estate with wonderfull buiildings, there is a lake which looks pristine during the summers. You will often see... More

Not a straight forward journey, but quite a nice trip to go in summer with pretty parks and lovely lake. The palace itself disappointed me a little, its quite small in comparison with others I've seen. Also did no like the fact that the amazing parquet floor was completely covered up with protective thick layer of carpets, which just spoilt... More
