  • Consists of 2 levels: one for permanent exposition, and one for temporary exhibitions with local graphics and lanscapes. Nice painting in every floor!  more »
  • Was originally to look at paintings by famous Russian artists. As I explained to employee, such at the Museum just 50. And put on view was 15 pieces. Quite a lot of old icons. The building itself is interesting, the old. Grandmothers, who look after the halls, definitely boring. With backpacks are not allowed. Even in the Hermitage me allowed with a backpack. The overall impression.

  • Very strong impression left icons 15-17 centuries. Energy from them the most powerful! Impressive paintings by Aivazovsky. Museum staff are very friendly. Recommend to visit.
