At number 12 of Uiltsa Volkhonka, very near the metro stop of Kropotkinskaya, you'll find this large building with columns that will take you back to the classical Greek era. In this architectural oasis, a large quantity of art hides behind the walls. This magnificent building was inaugurated in 1912 as part of the centennial celebrations of Napoleon's defeat. From the oldest sculptural and pictorial pieces, and applied arts, to the most modern works, this place houses a large collection of international artists. In fact, it's considered as the second most important museum in Russia after the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, and it's a place in which art lovers will lose their way round the rooms. The museum began to house all kinds of works following the Bolshevik Revolution, as many private collections were acquired and 'nationalised'.
