If youre a culture vulture, opt in for a historic and nature private tour of Archangelskoe Estate, the palace and park ensemble of the late 18th-early 19th century, located on the banks of the Moscow River.
Live la dolce vita exploring Archangelskoe Park and Palace, which is a wonderland with a scenic French sculpture garden, a 17th century church, European art pieces from the 18th-20th centuries, the Yusopov mausoleum built in 1910..
The manor is an ideal holiday hotspot which most tourists do not know about. It is roughly defined as a Moscow Versailles and will give you a true picture of luxurious Roman villas and castles of the French with their terraces, green lawns, bobbed alleys, numerous marble statues, a strict grid layout of avenues and trees. Get inspired and take a ton of postcard-looking photos.
