What To Expect
Visit the gorgeous Resurrection Church (the Church on Spilled Blood). It is the second largest mosaic museum in the world with 7000 m2 of mosaic covering its facade and the interiors. The cathedral in the pseudo-Russian style was founded to commemorate the Tsar-Martyr Alexander II on the exact site where he was mortally wounded in 1881. This Church is absolutely marvelous inside and out. It's the type of architecture you dream of before you come to Russia. Don't miss it!
Visit the Russian Museum - the world's largest museum of Russian art. The collection of the Russian Museum has about 400,000 works and covers the entire history of Russian fine art from the 10th century to the present day. It has every form and genre of art in Russia, including a unique collection of Old Russian icons, paintings, graphic art and sculpture, decorative and applied art, folk art and numismatics, as well as the world's finest collection of Russian avant-garde. Today the unique and comprehensive collection of the Russian Museum is an exceptional opportunity of an all around, detailed study of the development of artistic ideas and culture in Russia over a period of nearly two and a half centuries.
