Week-end Agenda

Kuskovo : also known as Russian Versailles, is a summer residential palace that use to be a part of the Sheremetev heritage. This was one of the wealthiest and most influential noble families in Russia.  For instance, the Sheremetyevo airport bears the name of this family because it was built near one of their villages.
The palace is situated in the middle of a huge parc with lakes, French and English gardens, a multitude of buildings and even a greenhouse. Due to its location it hasn’t been damaged by the WWII and now displays many pieces of furniture from the original collection.
Elegant and simple it’s a wonderful destination both of those who want to enjoy the last days of autumn and for those who want to appreciate historical places and luxury.
And if you caught a cold during this week, don’t worry, as the splendor of the place attracts filmmakers, you can still take a look at this place through classical must-see film “Gardes-Marines, Ahead!” or a more recent blockbuster “Admiral”.
