A park in Krasnogorsk

Krasnogorsk is a small city in West Moscow Oblast best known for its 18 hole golf course, the Moscow Country Club Resort, where Moscow's finest come to play. But even with out the allure of 18 holes, the city is worth a visit for its two large classical estates, one of which (Arkhangelskoye) is one of the finest in Moscow Oblast.

The most popular places to sleep might be at the Arkhangelskoye Estate and Le Meridien, but of course Krasnogorsk has hotels of its own:

  • Kroshka Enot, 21 Vokzalnaya ul.. A small 4-star hotel with the option of a jacuzzi bath 3,000–7,000 RUR.
