Russian museum

The State Russian Museum is the world's largest museum of Russian art. It is located in the very center of St Petersburg, just of the city's central magisterial, Nevsky Prospekt. The museum is housed in the former Mikhailovsky Palace, a stunning monument of Empire architecture. The collection of the Russian Museum numbers some 400,000 works and covers the entire history of Russian fine art from the tenth century to the present day. It reflects virtually every form and genre of art in Russia, including a unique collection of Old Russian icons, works of painting, graphic art and sculpture, decorative and applied art, folk art and numismatics, as well as the world's finest collection of Russian avaunt-garde. The State Russian Museum is home of the world's largest collection of Russian fine art. The museum is housed in four palaces located in the historical center of St. Petersburg. Together, these buildings present a retrospective panorama of Russian architecture - Baroque (Stroganov Palace), early and late Neoclassicism (Marble Palace, St. Michael's Palace). From Nevsky Prospect - The central magistral of St. Petersburg - you can enjoy the image of beautiful building, both monumental and light, with gracious portico of classic Corinthis order. Here, on the Art Square, in the Former Palace of Grand Duke Michail Pavlovich ( "Mikhailovsky Palace") are displaced the main compositions and founds of museum. If you walk from the main building up to the Nevsky Prospect and then turn to the right, you can see the plastic front of the oldest Stroganov Palace, named after its owners, the Stroganov famile.
