Tsaritsyno is the most important monument of the so-called “Russian Gothic” (pseudo-gothic) and is the largest pseudo-gothic building of the 18th century in Europe and the only palace complex developed in this style.

The features of the palace and park ensemble in many ways determined a new direction in Russian architecture: in many parts of the former Russian Empire there are a lot of structures of the late 18th and early 19th centuries created under the influence of Tsaritsyno.
