If you are into this type of paintings you will love it, but then again you already know you will before you even arrive. I doubt enthusiasts will be disappointed, but the rest of us can get a bit bored.

Very nice collection, interesting Old Masters' works. But may be it was too much for one day: Ciurlionis, Christos Resurrection Cathedral, and this museum.

It is rich and interesting museum of art and old things, often has extra exhibition. And that naked man is cool, almost like L. Da Vinci's.

I liked ground floor the most, because there is a gallery with more of contemporary art. Other floors are full of religious paintings, Chinese old stuff, old paintings... In one section they even have a mummy:D on Wednesdays they offer free entry!

That's my home town, and when I want a portion of art - I go there :-). I am not an art expert but I think 3-4 paintings are really good.
