A metric satisfying Einstein's equations is given which in the vicinity of the source reduces to the well-known Kerr metric and which at large distances reduces to the Robertson-Walker metric of a homogeneous cosmological model. The radius of the event horizon of the Kerr black hole in the cosmological background is found out.
