Museums



The Hermitage is not the only museum worth visiting in St Petersburg although the others will take you considerably less time to go around. The Pushkin Apartment Museum located in a house by the Moyka River is worth visiting. The apartment has been reconstructed to look exactly as it did in the poet's last days following his duel with a French soldier of fortune - Baron d'Anthes, who had been publicly chasing Pushkin's beautiful wife, Natalia. The affair was widely seen as a put-up job by Tsar Nicholas I, who disliked the famed poet's radical politics - and who, rumour has it, may have been the one really after Natalia. For the morbid, on display are his death mask, a lock of his hair, and the waistcoat he wore when he died. The Russian Museum is a must for anyone interested in Russian art and culture. The building is most impressively viewed from the back. It's housed in the former Mikhailovsky palace, which was built in 1819-25 for Grand Duke Mikhail as compensation for not getting to sit on the throne.
