15.03.2013 New national park will appear in Greater Moscow Area

"Archangelskoye" Museum Estate will soon become a national park, reports Geo Meridian portal.

The national park will occupy the territories adjoining to Skolkovo and Barvikha, as well as some areas of Krasnogorsky and Odintsovsky districts.

"Archangelskoye", is a palace and park complex, sometimes called the "Versailles of Greater Moscow Area", located only 10 km from Moscow. The estate had acquired its today appearance during 1789-1809. However, "Archangelskoye" reached its real magnificence only after it was bought by the prince Yusupov in 1810. He put a lot of money in construction and decoration of his estate and laid down the foundation of an interesting art collection.
