Famous for its impressive collections of impressionist and post-impressionistic paintings, the Pushkin Fine Arts Museum also houses works by some of the old masters such as Rubens, Rembrandt and Botticelli, and excellent exhibitions of Eygptian and Hellenistic art. Classicists amongst you can come over all moist in Room 7, where the legendary 'Treasures of Troy' are on display. These ancient artefacts were excavated by the German, Schliemann, in the 19th Century, smuggled out of modern day Turkey to Berlin, and subsequently appropriated by the Russians in 1945. What we want to know though, is how come there were any treasures left if Brad Pitt and co. nicked them all in the Trojan War...? Definitely a conspiracy theory waiting to happen!
