Kuskovo

The view of church and belfry from the pond
I promised Jacob from Ocala (Florida) Daily Photo (link) to post more photos from Kuskovo, here they are. Few facts more: The Count Peter Sheremetev's summer mansion, constructed in 1750-1770, was nationalised after October 1917 revolution and became the state museum. This decision of Soviet government allowed to keep the immunity of the complex. The buildings are surrounded by English landscape garden, the organ concerts are held in the main palace during the year.
Grotto. On a plan of the architect Argunov the Grotto should personify elements of a stone and water.
Italian House
Hermitage
Church and belfry
Palace walls
Park Kuskovo

I mentioned the link to the site of the museum in my previous post.
Today please look at the amazing winter photos I found when was researching about Kuskovo (link). The interiors are also presented and photos are very good!
