Tsaritsyno Sep 26, 2011
Just like Kolomenskoe, Tsaritsyno is another perfect blend of architecture and nature. Another must-sse in Moscow in my opinion. The lake is beautiful, especially in the spring. Perfect retreat for couples. Oh, and the squirrels are adorable and you can feed them!

Some info: In the southern part of Moscow, twenty minutes away from downtown by car, lay the lands of the State Museum-Reserve Tsaritsyno. Its nucleus is the largest palatial ensemble in Russia - the residence of Catherine the Great constructed between 1775 and 1796 by the famous Russian architects Vasiliy Bazhenov and Matvey Kazakov in the romantic "gothic taste". Tsaritsyno is the largest museum-reserve and historical and cultural monument of the federal level in Moscow, occupying over 700 hectares. The majority of the architectural monuments have already undergone restoration. The palatial grounds have been renovated. Exhibitions and expositions of the museum demonstrate various pages of Tsaritsyno history and rich collections of arts and crafts. Excursions, educational programs, concerts, festive events, the park and ponds, attractive for strollers, await their visitors. The restoration of the Grand Palace, the former great historical ruin, was completed in 2007. Large-scale restoration and landscaping of the park and the ponds was also carried out.
