Kuskovo Estate, Moscow

4.6
#12 of 498 in Museums in Moscow
The former summer home of a Russian noble family, the Sheremetevs, Kuskovo Estate today serves as the site of the Russian State Museum of Ceramics. The estate, built in the middle of the 18th century, was originally set in the countryside, but as Moscow expanded the rural atmosphere faded; today it stands in the city's East District. The museum displays over 30,000 exhibits of ceramics and glassware, with major collections of German, English, French, Danish, and Russian and Soviet porcelain. Outside the museum, tour the expansive grounds and visit the grotto, the Dutch house, and the main palace. Our Moscow trip builder makes visiting Kuskovo Estate and other Moscow attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Happened an infinite number of times in any season. Especially marvelous in early autumn and when painted leaves. Winter is a wonderful place for photo shoots, including the wedding. The splendid harmony of nature, pure snow, serenity and tranquility. Somehow mentally well here. Can be from different points to go and meditate in the surrounding area.

  • Hit the estate in heavy snow. It is not spoiled. Were surprised that this wooden building so perfectly preserved, as well as paintings, interior decorations. How much manual labor invested in this creation, it is hard to imagine. Unfortunately, the Park is completely covered with snow, to see him failed. But it is an extra reason to come back here during the warmer months,

  • Having visited many estates, Kuskovo for me is the most beautiful farmstead in Moscow. From the museum complex were only in the Grotto-very unusual and beautiful, even at the present time the Grotto retains its original purpose-protection from the scorching sun. Landscape-Park complex shakes-ponds, where you can ride a boat, paths that you can take a horse-drawn carriage, fountains, statues, hedges, "bird's corner"-just a perfect place for a stroll. The weekend comes lots of wedding motorcades for photo becomes quite crowded.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
