#3 of 543 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.

  • I advise everyone to visit Tsaritsyno, the Great green territory, with bridges, palaces, lake breathe fresh air to enjoy nature in such a rhythmic city.

  • Winter fairy tale. I'm sure you should come back here in the summer and take a walk. Very nice. Historical places.

  • Lovely park with squirrels, an outdoor dance floor and magnificent palace. The state room is breathtaking and many fine and interesting rooms to see. No wonder they had a revolution. It is difficult to navigate and no signs in English and the usual bulldog style of customer service. Nice museum shop.
  • I really enjoyed the park, very large area to walk around. There was a lot of food and drink stalls to have a break. Good place to relax and read a book or sketch nature. The Cafes on the premises have high prices and the portions are not worth it. There were a lot of weddings going on while I was there and sometimes it felt uncomfortable to walk past them because large groups are trying to take photos so you try to not disturb or not end up in their photos. But it is understandable why people come there during their wedding because the park has a very nice scenery.
