“ Day 3 1. Pushkin Museum (1 hour) has a fantastic collection of French art of the late 19th century. It is a worthy place for Impressionists lovers. It is in a green building to the left of the main one. Closed on Monday. 2. Christ the Savior Cathedral (20 min) is across the road from the museum. Its history is a great illustration of Christianity adventures in Russia. Try to find a modern icon where crimes of bolsheviks against the Church are shown. 3. Muzeon Park (1 hour) is the place where old Soviet statues were moved to after 1991. It is easy to walk there from the Cathedral across the bridge. On the way you can be entertained by a view of the gigantic Peter the Great statue over the river. 4. New Tretyakov Gallery (1-1.5 hours) is in a big grey building in Muzeon Park. Go there for Russian avantgarde and socialistic realism. ”
