And the Big palace that is an interesting museum nowadays. As well as other structures meant for the members of the royal family and their entourage.
Moscow english speaking guide invites you for a walk in the park where you will hear all the intricate stories of this fantastic place.
You will see the 18th century architectural ensemble designed by Bazhenov and Kazakov, as well as the palace of Catherine II restored in 2005-2007.
Optionally you can visit the Palace itself and admire its interiors designed by the modern artists, accompanied by an English speaking guide in Moscow.
Besides, the park is full of tiny squirrels that you can feed out of your hand, if you are lucky. So don't forget to bring some nuts with you.
This estate originally belonged to Kantemir dukes who were associates of Peter I, and later it was purchased by empress Catherine II. She started calling this place a “real paradise”.
Upon her order the construction of the palace was started. For 10 years architect Vasily Bazhenov was working very hard to please his royal customer, but... Catherine II didn't like Bazhenov's work. She ordered to demolish it and build a new palace in its place. The order was given to Bazhenov's disciple – Matvei Kazakov. However, 10 years of construction works finished in nothing again – the empress died, and her son Paul I decided to stop financing the works.
