Trip Planner: Europe / Russia / Central Russia / Moscow / Tsaritsyno Museum-Reserve
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.

A very beautiful collection of natural and artificial elements that all together have formed a unique colony. The park dates back to the 18th century and forms a series of monuments in Moscow Also, this park has excellent circulation and unique harmony of colors.
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.
Nice place. Lots of beautiful trees with incredible leaves colors during autumn! The Grand Palace is great! The rest is not really worth it! The green gardens... are too basic... just South American ordinary plants nothing impressive.
The best time to visit this palace would be during the evenings. The lighting of the palace along with the other structures makes the whole place look like something from a dream. The lighting brings out the features of the structures especially in the night. The gardens surrounding the palace are well maintained. The area isn't crowded as one would expect it to be. Its good place to relax and walk about.
Absolutely amazing and beautiful place. If you’re a fan of long quite walks in the nature this place is perfect for you. There are so many picturesque places in the park. Also there are many birds and squirrels who are totally tamed and come to ask for food from the visitors. Don’t forget to bring some snacks for them!
