"The estate is known from the late 16th century, when it belonged to Tsaritsa Irina, sister of Tsar Boris Godunov. At that time it was called Bogorodskoye. In the 17th century it belonged to the Streshnevs and then to the Galitzines.

In 1775, the estate was bought by empress Catherine the Great, who happened to be passing through the area and fell in love with the picturesque beauty of the land. It received its present name, which means “Tsaritsa’s”." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsaritsyno_Park

It was "Peter and Fevronia Day", sth like Valentine, that's why it's so festive: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_and_Fevronia_Day
