Specialty Museum · Museum
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’s a beautiful park to walk around and spend the day. Museums was also nice to see. I rally love it in the fall and winter. The colors of the autumn leaves Mixed with the architecture and lakes are a feast for the eye and heart.
  • Very beautiful park with an interesting history. There is a museum where you can learn all about it. It's also a nature reserve so there's a lot of wildlife, which was refreshing. Wonderful lights at night illuminate the grand buildings. This place is a must see if you are visiting Moscow.
