Kuskovo Estate, Moscow

4.6
#11 of 241 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.

It was very interesting to listen to her, it's obvious his proffesional case. I advise everyone to go to her on tour! very beautiful manor house with rich interior. all will be interesting to visit it. The park itself is also very beautiful, everywhere flowers, sculptures ... Will definitely come again to visit the Dutch House.

    My guest American came to the great delight of visiting the Park and Palace! Was pleasantly amazed at how reconstruction works are carried out, as all perfectly planned and organized, and most importantly how to carefully preserved historic interiors of the Palace and other buildings!

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.
