Pskov National Museum

Pskov, Russia

The Pskov state historical, architectural and art museum, opened in 1876, is one of the oldest museums of Russia. It comprises three separate museums and a wide range of displays. The 2nd floor of the new building houses the war collection, with photos and artefacts from WWII, as well as information on more recent conflicts like Afghanistan and Chechnya. More interesting is the 1st-floor picture gallery, which has works from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, including paintings by Nikitin, Tropinin and Zhukovsky, as well as representations from the Russian avant garde, including a couple of Petrov-Vodkins.

Место на вид снаружи очень красивое! Но внутри нет ничего особенного. Обычная кофейня, магазин алкашки, пивная, ресторан... Разве что находится всё это в здании 17-го века. Цены не низкие. Оно и понятно, так как всё рассчитано на туристов с деньгами. Поэтому, будучи в Пскове, зайти можно, но не стоит ждать чего-то особенного.

Музей закрыт на реставрацию с ноября 2018 года примерно на два года. Работает экспозиция, посвящённая ВОВ. Организуют экскурсии в запасники, показывают декоративно-прикладное искусство.

Хорошее место. Есть 3 варианта попитаться :-). 1. Эконом на 2018 год 350 рэ в нижней части (вкусные булки, пироги, закуски, кофе, суп и второе). Попроще посуда. Буфет с возможностью пообедать. Удобно также если вы не с врослыми с детьми. 2. Пивная под крышей на улице (набор для кофе и пива) где-то 500 рэ. 3. Ну и наверху ресторан с русским колоритом и русской национальной кухней (если со спиртным + нормальная закуска) можно уложиться и в 700 - 1000 рэ. Там же есть несколько залов, но всё-таки места даже для Пскова и его туристов маловато. Если сравнивать с тем, что предлагается комфортней, со скидками, в Пскове то это лучший и экономный вариант. Цена качество 5 баллов (ну это мое мнение). Как говорится на вкус и цвет.

Наш музей на мой взгляд не уступает по ценности коллекциям столичных музеев. Прекрасная художественная галерея,бесценный раздел икон и т.д. и т.п. Очень много интерактивных мероприятий. Я горжусь нашим музеем.

Lübeck Cathedral

Lübeck Cathedral is a large brick-built Lutheran cathedral in Lübeck, Germany and part of the Lübeck UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 1173 Henry the Lion founded the cathedral to serve the Diocese of Lübeck, after the transfer in 1160 of the bishop's seat from Oldenburg in Holstein under bishop Gerold. The then Romanesque cathedral was completed around 1230, but between 1266 and 1335 it was converted into a Gothic-style building with side-aisles raised to the same height as the main aisle.

On the night of Palm Sunday (28–29 March) 1942 a Royal Air Force bombing raid destroyed a fifth of the town centre. Several bombs fell in the area around the church, causing the eastern vault of the quire to collapse and destroying the altar which dated from 1696. A fire from the neighbouring cathedral museum spread to the truss of the cathedral, and around noon on Palm Sunday the towers collapsed. An Arp Schnitger organ was lost in the flames. Nevertheless, a relatively large portion of the internal fittings was saved, including the cross and almost all of the medieval polyptychs. In 1946 a further collapse, of the gable of the north transept, destroyed the vestibule almost completely.

Reconstruction of the cathedral took several decades, as greater priority was given to the rebuilding of the Marienkirche. Work was completed only in 1982.

The cathedral is unique in that at 105 m, it is shorter than the tallest church in the city. This is the consequence of a power struggle between the church and the guilds.

The 17 m crucifix is the work of the Lübeck artist Bernt Notke. It was commissioned by the bishop of Lübeck, Albert II. Krummendiek, and erected in 1477. The carvings which decorate the rood screen are also by Notke.

Since the war, the famous altar of Hans Memling has been in the medieval collection of the St. Annen Museum, but notable polyptychs remain in the cathedral.

In the funeral chapels of the southern aisle are Baroque-era memorials by the Flemish sculptor Thomas Quellinus.
