  • 21 March took advantage of free access to the art gallery. I liked the paintings of the great masters of Russian and foreign. Part of the exhibition is devoted to the creative work of Maxim Gorky. On the top floor of wooden religious sculptures. Submitted by local artist's creativity also Kamensky. I advise to visit.

  • Very beautiful and rare pictures are in this gallery. Unusual Gallery gives its location in the former Church. This is the only place where you can see and consider the iconostasis 15 meters in close on all height, because inside the building built with three floors with open access to ikonostasu about a meter away from him. Variety painting strike, there are Russian paintings famous painters such as Aivazovsky, Levitan, Shishkin, Ivan Kramskoi, as well as foreign Klodt, Kuindzhi, etc. Place very much on March 2018 year price adult ticket 150 rubles. All advise!

  • Awesome! Twice specially visited in Perm Krai for visiting this gallery ... + went to Kungur, solikamsk, Berezniki, and even before Cherdyni got ... twice! .. Once there was a little ... Pro Gallery read, but seen, certainly exceeded all expectations ... wooden sculpture, so-called "perm bozhki" is, of course, something unique. liked the picture gallery ... but, of course, one cannot fail to notice where the Perm Gallery! in the temple. and it would be better to say so: art saved art ... powerful iconostasis lived to us only because the Museum was opened. surprisingly, the icons, the temple utensils, wooden sculptures from around the Perm region gathered in the 1920s, when everything that was connected with religion destroyed. 1922 year.. temples were destroyed, crosses were dumped. and here is a Savior Transfiguration Cathedral survived! Isn't it a miracle!
