Kuskovo Manor: Entertainment House of Russian Elite

Posted on July 21, 2011 by kulichik


Welcome to Kuskovo Manor, the summer entertainment country-house of count Peter Sheremetiev which was intended for parties, celebrations and entertainments. For more than half a century beginning with 1739 and ending with 1792 count P. B. Sheremetiev, son of Peter the Great’s associate Field-Marshal B. P. Sheremetiev, has built and decorated the manor. His summer residence was not inferior to the tsar’s palace in refinement and magnificence.
