  • Recommended, various art gallery! Wednesday is free of admission 😉 I'm not an art fanatic but was enthusiastic about this gallery. Widespread variety of art right through the 20th century.

Kirzhov gallery is definitely a highlight Some huge works worth taking the time to sit and enjoy. The audio guide was sure good to give you an idea of the main artist. After browsing the gallery for 2 hours we had a coffee and a stroll on the beautiful Gorky park on a beautiful summer day.
