4.7
#3 of 241 in Museums in Moscow
Immerse yourself in the world of Catherine the Great with a visit to Tsarytsino Open-Air History and Architectural Museum, 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.

  • This is the place for himself for the first time opened, although for a long time. Awesome nice, plenty of space for families with children, food totally decent.

  • One of the best places for walks and relaxation on the water you can feed ducks, and against the backdrop of historic architecture make great photo

  • Summer walk left unforgettable impressions. A single architectural style gives emotions. Landscape Museum-reserve Tsaritsyno simply chic. You can relax on a bench in the shade of the trees or simply on the lawn. Like central fountain Jet, which had been raised to the accompaniment of classical music. A delight for the senses!

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.
