Grotto in Kuskovo

Grotto in Kuskovo
One of the most interesting buildings in Kuskovo - Grotto 1755-1761 gg. built. Grotto was created under the leadership F.Argunova. Stone baroque pavilion lavishly decorated with sculpture, lion masks over the windows. Grotto wall decorated with colored glass and calcareous tufa. The architects had to impersonate Grotto water and stone elements. It consists of a central hall under the pink and green marble, and the northern and southern offices in cold and warm color schemes, respectively. Interior decoration was a complex and lengthy process. About 10 years, with interruptions was engaged "groticheskih affairs" German master Johann Vogt.
The walls and ceiling are richly decorated rooms sinks, travertine, glass, mirrors and pieces of plaster moldings.
Grotto in Kuskovo - the only Russian pavilion has retained its unique trim from the XVIII century.
