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.

My husband, children and I spent 5 very busy days in Moscow in May for business purposes. The downside of the trip was that most locals did not speak English. On our last night in Moscow, Arthur picked us from the Olimpiski center after the Eurovision semi-finals- that was around 1.30 a.m. Arthur gave us an amazing night tour that ended around 4 in the morning. We were so pleased not only to have an English speaking guide showing us around but also getting immersed in Arthur's extensive knowledge of the Russian history. He made us feel connected to the sites we visited. Thank you Arthur for all your efforts and for turning our last night in Moscow into a memory of a lifetime...
