Grotto near pond 2

Grotto near pond 2

Here is one more picture of the very pretty building, Grotto, located in Kuskovo Estate. This photo I made at one perfect summer day in 2005. I have already photos of this building in my Moscow photo gallery which I took in 2004, but here I tryed to make something different. Hope you enjoy this view!

Here is the information from my previous photos about this building:

The Grotto (1755-61) by F. Argunov was a resting/cooling place for guests on hot summer days. It is designed to seem like an underwater cave with its sea shell decorations and greenish color. Nowadays the Grotto pavilion has the unique collection of porcelain, antique ceramics, faience, majolica, glass, and crystal from the West Europe and Russia.

Moscow is an amazing city, but because of its greatness and political dynamics can become very intimidating for Western tourists. Arthur was my guide on this fascinating journey through the main tourist spots.

Arthur was the best choice I could have made. Punctual, patient, friendly, with extensive knowledge of the city's history and always willing to help. Arhtur was a great friend who I had the good fortune to meet.

On top of this a photographer that will leave you with memories of your trip much better than the usual "selfies" tourists end up doing and it will never have the artistic quality that a good photographer can accomplish. I strongly recommend this service.
