The Grotto Pavilion
The Grotto pavilion was built on the grounds of Sheremetyev's Kuskovo Estate by project of Russian architect Fyodor Argunov in 1755-1761. The Grotto is the most remarkable of Kuskovo’s pavilions. It was a resting/cooling place for guests on hot summer days. The building was designed to seem like an underwater cave with its sea shell decorations and greenish color. Nowadays the Grotto pavilion has the unique collection of porcelain, antique ceramics, faience, majolica, glass, and crystal from the West Europe and Russia.
