Crash Course in Russian Art History

If you don’t know Andrei Rublev from Ilya Repin, the Russian Museum, above, (4 Inzhenernaya St.) provides a crash course in the country’s art history. For contemporary pieces, Loft Project Etagi (74 Ligovsky Prospekt) shows paintings, sculptures, and photographs by international artists in a former baking factory. The café welcomes late-night lingering, and garage sales offer vintage clothing and books. —Nick Marmet
