It was the summer country house and estate of the Sheremetev family - one of the richest families of their days.
Built in the mid-18th century, it was initially located several miles to the east of Moscow but today is part of the capital. It was one of the first great summer country estates of the Russian nobility, and one of the few near Moscow still preserved. Really well preserved! Not a modern replica! Built of wood the palace has a lot of surprises in its decoration and decorative elements. It can strike you!
Today the estate is the home of the Russian State Museum of Ceramics, and the park is a favourite place of recreation for Muscovites.
