Overview

Located close to the Moskva river, this estate is the former property of the Russian noble family, Golitsyn. In 1810 the entire estate was purchased by the famous art collector and socialite Iusupov (1750-1831), who, amongst other things, added a harem. Attractions to look out for within the estate include the 17th-century Church of the Archangel Michael, the 18th-century Bolshoi Dom (Big House) with an Italian garden decorated with marble sculptures, and the 19th-century Malyi Palace which has columns commemorating a tsar's visit and inside a famous former serf theater (1816-1818).
