    This time I finally visited the exposition Palace! A remarkable reconstruction is finished, gorgeous Interior, interesting exhibition. Do supervisors have printouts with information, do not hesitate to ask! Finally evicted the military sanatorium. It is not clear what will happen with this building-so far it is crumbling before our eyes-literally close to walls do not match! Now I plan to visit in the winter!

    Beautiful manor, a wonderful park. Very nice walk there. Guides tell the story interesting. A lot of visitors, but since the territory a large crowd there. The Palace is beautiful, but inside pustovat. In Arkhangelsk, in my opinion, the most remarkable is the Park. Therefore it is necessary to plan a trip a day with good weather and go for a walk, go for a walk.

    In may 2017 were a few days in Moscow and decided to visit the Arkhangelskoye estate. I must say that we were unlucky with the weather, it was very cold and it was raining. This circumstance has deprived us of fun walk in the magnificent park. But we're not upset, because they decided that even necessarily come here and wander among centuries-old trees, descend to the Moscow river, consider the plaster sculptures along the paths of the Park. But on this trip we did not lose time, saw the two floors of the mansion, attended the tour unique cognitive Yusupov, who were the last owners of the Manor. It was very interesting and a little sad. Sad that in our country the monuments of the past almost never rehabilitated, not being preserved properly. Arkhangelskoye also requires investment, restoration and repair. The Museum keeps on enthusiasm of the workers. But I recommend to visit this touching place! You will not regret.
