  • Like everything, even the building itself-the Cathedral, the gallery there on loan. Inside there are old iconostasis, it is obstructed, but it can be addressed. A good collection of painting, but the jewel-wooden gods. This unique collection of world-class (part of the collection was exhibited in 2010 in Lyon), sculptures of very unusual traits of persons, silhouettes, technique. Highly recommend a guide (at least on 3-th floor, where wooden gods)-will tell you a lot of interesting things.
