Project Description

10 min by walk

The Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts is the largest museum of European art in Moscow. Architectural monument is located in the center of Moscow, near the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. The museum holds a collection of Western art from antiquity to the XX century, with more than 560,000 paintings, drawings, sculptures, archaeological monuments, numismatics and artistic photography. After going through a number of name-changes, particularly in the transition to the Soviet-era and the return of the Russian capital to Moscow, the museum was finally renamed to honour the memory of Pushkin in 1937, the 100th anniversary of his death.
