    Arkhangelskoye Estate and Museum
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    You will receive a brief overview of city sights from your knowledgeable guide and enjoy a private tour of Archangelskoe Estate exploring the architectural masterpieces and enjoying the Russian landscape. Located 20 kilometers west from Moscow, the elaborate Archangelskoe Estate is a rare example of the elite residence on the outskirts of Moscow surrounded by a sprawling garden and facing the Moscow River. Get dramatic views, listen to interesting stories and get up close and personal with a private residence of Russian elite of 18-19th centuries. Timing is flexible and you can start the tour any time you prefer.   This tour can be customized to make it a unique experience for you. Your private local guide will meet you in the hotel lobby and discuss the tour itinerary with you at the beginning of the tour.   10 am – Hotel pick-up Your private friendly local guide will pick you up from your centrally-located hotel and you will take a brief city tour by car on your way to the Archangelskoe Estate. 10.40 am – 12.20 pm – See Big and Small Palaces, beautiful gardens, churches, the tiny Tea House, monuments of Catherine the Great and Alexander Pushkin, Upper and Lower Terraces The estate was built in a neoclassical style and looks like it came from a vintage movie set. One of its highlights is a terraced park decorated with many antique statues. Arkhangelskoe's oldest buildings are the church of Archangel Michael (1646) and Saint Gates (1820s). Take a walk around the park for nature nooks and architectural gems. The Archangelskoe ensemble features a stunning collection of fine art. Artifacts include sculptures, paintings, ceramics, furniture and interior. Following the fashion in the Enlightenment period, Yusupov (one of its owners) displayed his 16,000-volume library and impressive treasure of paintings, which included works by Boucher, Tiepolo and van Dyke. The estate celebrates the harmony of architecture and nature, and you will feel it through all its beautiful elements: 200-year-old larch trees, a fountain "Cupids with Dolphins", sculptural groups "Hercules and Antaeus" and "Menelaus with the body of "Patroclus", balustrade with 44 marble busts of ancient heroes, emperors, philosophers and generals – Caesar, Democritus, Nero, Augustus. 12.20 – 1 pm – Hotel drop-off After the tour say good-bye to ancient times and get back to bustling Moscow. Your guide will drop you off at your hotel or any centrally-located place you wish, provided that the traffic is good in that area.
