Whoever owned Arkhangelskoye at the time, the estate was never short of interesting guests. The hospitable Golitsyn and Yusupov families, as well as other notable owners, would host Alexander Pushkin, Nikolay Karamzin, Pyotr Vyazemsky, Nikolay Ogarev, Alexander Herzen, Alexandre Benois, Valentin Serov, Konstantin Korovin, and Igor Stravinsky, along with several generations of the Russian emperors — Alexander I, Nicholas I, Alexander II, Alexander III, and Nicholas II.
After the revolution, the estate was turned into a history and art museum. In the 1930s, a military clinical sanatorium was organized here, and between 1945 and the 1990s, it housed the facilities of the CSKA sports club.
If you come to Arkhangelskoye, make sure to visit the Grand Palace, the Church of Archangel Michael (built in the 1660s, it is the estate's most ancient structure, hidden in the woods), the Yusupov family vault, also known as the Colonnade mausoleum, the Caprice Small Palace, Gonzaga theatre, and the Saint Gates.
A detailed map of the estate and relevant literature can be found at the estate ticket offices or at the nearby souvenir shops. Make sure to visit the estate's website before your trip to Arkhangelskoye to find out about upcoming exhibitions, concerts and festivals, which regularly take place here.
