Another vast palace filled with art. I was most interested in the historic paintings and the modern art. One paining of people hauling a boat on the Volga river was very powerful, evoking the hard work of the poor people.

Venetsianov, Brulov, Repin, Surikov, Serov, Levitan, Malevitch, Rerikh... you name it. Russian art is worth another day, spent in museum. Constant rain outside makes this option even more reasonable.

The highlights of Russian treasures are well presented in the displays here. Missed the special collection of jewels but it's worth visiting to get a view of history and grandeur.

Nice museum, good art collections (if you want to see Russian painters). I'd certainly recommend. Plus, it's located in a beautiful spot of the city.

Less crowded than the Hermitage. Some very nice Russian paintings by Shishkin, Repin and Aivazovsky. Good museum shops.
