4.7
#3 of 544 in Museums in Moscow
Immerse yourself in the world of Catherine the Great with a visit to Tsaritsyno Museum-Reserve, 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.

  • It is wonderful to visit in winter in the holidays of the Tsaritsyn greenhouse in the complex of the Museum-Reserve. There are rare plants blooming in winter, from Catherine's collection, which she discharged from abroad. Today, the plants that are written in the archival books of Catherine's times continue to support here. Do not spare the time spent, you are waiting for floral surprises. Thanks to the local flower growers-workers of the greenhouse. The museum complex is interesting with exposition and concerts. Pleasant cafes inside. The park area is luxurious in summer

  • Hello world! Unfortunately, after the reconstruction Tsaritsino turned into a new-year building, which has no value. Previously, when everything was in almost ruinous condition this place made more impressions...

  • One of the most beautiful parks in Moscow. Literally, a magical Sunday end-of-Summer afternoon walk. The high trees, the hilly paths, the incredible landscapes and to top it all... a fine dancing amongst senior Moscow citizens belonging to a dancing club. All this even before the palace complex and music fountain... wow! The discreet pleasure Russians take on nature and sophistication does not cease to amaze me. Don't miss a visit there!
  • One of the most beautiful parks in Moscow. Kilometers of walking paths, beautiful lake, music fontains and amazing, lovely architecture from Catherine II time. So jealous about people living around who can enjoy this wonderful place on the daily basis. Very well maintained and clean too!
