A Gallery Adorned with Artifacts of One Shape or Form

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Praskipark on January 20, 2009

Every room in this gallery is adorned with artefacts of one shape or form. Whole walls are covered in reconstructions of the city in different times. As well as housing the largest collection of books, treaties and writings from the Middle Ages it has a very beautiful sculpture of St. Peter's. It is made from gold and platinum. Figures have been recreated from precious gems and stained glass windows are miniature but correct in every form of detail.

It is impossible to take all this knowledge in and you could at least spend a day in this gallery alone.
