Kuskovo Estate

Kuskovo Estate

The Kuskovo Estate, nicknamed the Moscow Versailles due to its formal French gardens, is a perfect example of an 18th century Muscovite country residence. The history of the estate dates back to 1715, when Tsar Peter the Great awarded the village of Kuskovo to Boris Sheremetev, a Russian general who excelled at the battle of Poltava and who decided to build a summer residence there. The Sheremetyevs were one of the wealthiest and most powerful families in Russia and the estate was used by several generations of the family.
Nowadays, Kuskovo estate is an official museum of Russian architecture, ceramics and sculpture.

The best thing that we did to help with jetlag was booking a Moscow by night tour with Arthur. We saw and learned so much in just a few hours with Arthur. I was greatly impressed with his knowledge and enthusiasm of the history of each point. What a beautiful city and all the more charming with a guide like Arthur! Spasiba Arthur!

To Arthur:
Thank you so much for 2 wonderful, wonderful experiences during our stay in Moscow. We are sorry that we weren't able to get you tickets to the show but it was very very oversold and we were not able to get anything. All of us had a great time and I just wanted to thank you again.

Sincerely, Craig (Dancer of the Mark Morris Dance Group).
