Description of Ostankino Palace

 

Ostankino Palace was constructed between 1790- 1798. The interior of the palace is well preserved in its original appearance. Its decorations and furniture are also original for the most part having a rare luxury of not being looted during the Russian Revolution or World War II. Wooden floor still keeps the original shapes and outline. The central part of the Ostankino Estate is taken occupied by a large auditorium with a large stage which could easily turn into a singly dancing hall. The side wings of the palace are taken by Italian and Egyptian pavilions. A walkway surrounded by statues connects Ostankino Palace with the large pond.

 

The museum in Ostankino Estate houses a collection of ancient icons and wooden sculptures of the late 15th century. It also contains a collection of furniture from 14th- 19th centuries and a collection of paintings. Each year Museum- Estate of Ostankino presents concerts of classical music.
