Park of the Russian
Why locals love it
Tsaritsyno museum and reserve in Moscow was founded in 1984 in the park of the same name. The estate is known from the late 16th century, when it belonged to Tsarina Irina, sister of Tsar Boris Godunov. At that time it was called Bogorodskoye. In the 17th century it belonged to the Streshnevs and then to the Galitzines.
Why you should visit it
Currently, in Tsaritsyno there are a history and architecture museum, a landscape park with an adjacent forest, an art museum, the Biryulyovo dendropark, and a cascade of the Tsaritsyno ponds. The 18th-century main architecture ensemble was built following the order of Catherine II in Neo-Gothic style.
Better to visit in spring, summer and early autumn.
