  • Really liked it! Surprisingly, there is enough large collection of paintings. Price match. Very nice parallel with paintings, periodically glance at sea outside the window.

  • Adore Aivazovsky. The Gallery has collected a large number of his works. "The ninth shaft", of course, there's no at the Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, but no less beautiful. Highly recommend. Perhaps, this is one of the two or three attractions, which is worth a visit for the sake of feodosiya.

  • Given that the last 20 years in Crimea not invested money, the building is very old, but this in no way detracts from its contents. Masterpieces are gorgeous! Even a century later, the picture breathe the love for the sea and calm and storm on the paintings by Aivazovsky, equally beautiful! We got the pleasure of visiting the Gallery is very pleased that the visitors are mostly young people. Despite the off-season was very crowded. Wonderful guides.
