Tsaritsyno

The Tsaritsyno museum and park, located in the south of Moscow, is a unique national historical and architectural ensemble of the 18-19th centuries and one of the most beautiful places in all of Moscow. In 1775, the Russian Empress Catherine the Great commissioned architect Vasily Bazhenov to build a new residence but in 1776 ordered the construction be partly pulled down. The reconstruction of the palace was carried on by his disciple architect Matvey Kazakov but the building remained unfinished, mainly for financial reasons. For more than two centuries Tsarytsino was falling into decay and it was only in 2007 that the palatial complex was restored based on the original design by Vasily Bazhenov. The Tsarytsino ensemble is famous for its pseudo-Gothic architecture and Masonic symbols on the walls, a history, architectural and art museum, a landscape park and a cascade of the ponds. The Tsaritsyno park is a favourite place for locals and visitors to enjoy the unusual beauty of the 18th century palatial architecture and gardening art.
