Directions to Arkhangelskoe estate
The Arkhangelskoye estate was first mentioned in the 16th century as 'Upolozye' because it belonged to Alexis Upolotskiy. Later it was bought by Feodor Sheremetyev, a famous Russian high ranking aristocrat.
The Arkhangelskoye estate was a summer residence for princess Golitsins, but the 'golden age' of the manor came in early 19th century when Prince Nikolay Yusupov, patron of arts and the member of one of the richest nobilities in Russia, became the landowner. He invited the French architect Jacob Guerne to design the main palace in 1786-1790. The building had two wings, one of them was used as an art gallery and the other one as a library.
In 1790-s an Italian designer Giacomo Trombaro created a magnificent park called 'Russian Versailles'. It has impressive terraces with marble sculptures of antique gods, heroes and philosophers. In the western part of the park there is a small palace Caprice and a Tea house, in the eastern part Pink Fountain pavilion will surely eye - catching place for every visitor.
Nowadays Archangelskoye is divided into two parts. The first part has no entrance fee, It includes park, Gonsaga theatre and Apollo's grove. The second one has an admission fee and includes the Palace. Since 1998 every summer Arkhangelskoye is hosting an open air music festival 'Usadba Jazz' where there one can experience a fantastic combination of aristocratic tasteful space and ear teasing and tuneful jazz themes.
