Apollo



So I promissed to tell you more about Kuskovo. Here you are.

Kuskovo was built in XVIII century as a summer residence of counts Sheremetev. Consisted of numerous 'pleasures and delights', it was intended for luxurious receptions and large theatrical feasts. The estate is well known both for magnificent specimens of architecture (such as Palace, Grotto or Greenhouse) and regular French park with beautiful ponds, pavilions and marble statues.
One of the statues - Apollo - you can see in this picture, the building on the background is the Greenhouse.
