Immerse yourself in the world of Catherine the Great with a visit to Tsaritsyno Museum-Reserve, located in the southeastern section of Moscow. Designed on the Empress's orders and built on a truly grand scale, this vast estate features a grand palace surrounded by landscaped gardens, artificial grottos, picnic pavilions, decorative bridges, dense forests, and rolling fields. Unfinished during Catherine's life, the sprawling complex remained abandoned for nearly two centuries. Extensively redesigned and finally completed in 2007, the complex offers visitors a rare insight into the lifestyle of European royalty. The easiest way to explore the grounds is by guided tour, so make your arrangements before you make the trip. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Moscow using our trip planner.

  • It’s a beautiful park to walk around and spend the day. Museums was also nice to see. I rally love it in the fall and winter. The colors of the autumn leaves Mixed with the architecture and lakes are a feast for the eye and heart.
  • Very beautiful park with an interesting history. There is a museum where you can learn all about it. It's also a nature reserve so there's a lot of wildlife, which was refreshing. Wonderful lights at night illuminate the grand buildings. This place is a must see if you are visiting Moscow.
  • The vist here in winter was great, although seemingly impossible to go about without picking up a coffee or two (or tea), all in all great. Summer must be pleasing to the eye. Be sure to look at for architectural structure of the buildings.
  • One of the most beautiful parks in Moscow. Literally, a magical Sunday end-of-Summer afternoon walk. The high trees, the hilly paths, the incredible landscapes and to top it all... a fine dancing amongst senior Moscow citizens belonging to a dancing club. All this even before the palace complex and music fountain... wow! The discreet pleasure Russians take on nature and sophistication does not cease to amaze me. Don't miss a visit there!
  • Nice place. Lots of beautiful trees with incredible leaves colors during autumn! The Grand Palace is great! The rest is not really worth it! The green gardens... are too basic... just South American ordinary plants nothing impressive.
