Description

Do not miss a chance to enjoy a visit to the Russian Museum, which was built in 1819 as the Mikhailovsky Palace for Grand Duke Mikhail Pavlovich, a brother of Alexander I and Nicholas I. The palace now contains art ranging from ancient Kievian Rus through to the present time.

The collection developed following the nationalisation of private collections after the revolution, and the “acquisition” of 40,000 icons from churches which were closed during the Soviet era. The collection of Russian paintings found here is equalled only by that of the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow. A professional guide with a deep knowledge of Russian history of Arts will make your visit educational.
