Honestly, I'm always blown away by the beauty of it, and I constantly find new sights there. Every now and then, there's free admission to the museum, so you can get lucky and see some wonderful snippets... More

Beautiful castle in a big forest. It's like you are far from the city. There are also wonderful small bridges and towers and pavilions in the forest and a pond with swans.

Well... Although almost all the buildings are "restored" in the sense of "newly-built", the museum is worth seeing. And be shure to take a good stroll in the park and breathe some air. And there is a garden of wild apple trees. The odour of apples on the ground is most sweet.

Catherine II's Great Palace built in 1785-1796 was unfinished when she died and her son, the Emperor Paul I, ordered construction to stop. The building had a roof but no interior and no furniture and was destined for two centuries of desolation, becoming a rather picturesque ruin. The Moscow government reconstructed the palace in 2005-2007 and it has become an... More

One of the best places in Moscow (after the Kremlin) to feel and understand the Russian top ruling powerful people - tsars. Renovated and absolutely incredible pice of architecture art shows the power of the monarchs in Russia and can explain the now to some extend.

There are galleries... More
