Музей-усадьба «Архангельское»


Arkhangelskoye is a palace and park ensemble of the XVIII century, located in the Moscow region, not far from Krasnogorsk. On the territory there is an ancient manor, which once belonged to the Golitsyn family and Prince N.B. Yusupov. A.S. Pushkin, N.M. Karamzin, V.A. Serov, I.F. Stravinsky and even the royal family have often visited the estate. The manor has been reconstructed many times, but even nowadays it continues to amaze guests with its beauty and history. On the territory of the complex there are also the Temple of Yusupovs, the Temple of Archangel Michael, a small palace "Caprice", a tea house, a monument to Catherine II, a pink fountain and much more! Here you can stroll along shady alleys, enjoy the nature and beauty of architecture of the past centuries.

Лохин остров

Nature Preserves

"Lohin Island" is a reserve, which was formed in the XIX century because of the straightening of the Moskva River bed, and today even has the status of a state natural monument of regional importance. There are many representatives of the flora, listed in the Red Book, and the main attraction of the reserve - Lake Deaf Yama, which, according to stories, is more than 12000 years old! Here you can walk through the forest, enjoy the coniferous fragrance and purest air, and if you are lucky - even collect a handful of forest berries.

Pleasant atmosphere, democratic prices and delicious dishes will surely please you!
