- Founded in 1832, this is one of the largest museums of natural history in the world. The exposition is rather impressive - you will see nearly 40,000 animals from all parts of the planet, inhabiting forests, deserts, the depths of the sea and the polar ice caps. The collection includes many rarities e.g. two famous "baby-mammoths" and the huge skeleton of the extinct southern elephant found on the Azov Sea. The main exhibition is on the ground floor. On the second floor you will find a large collection of insects including hundreds of fantastically colorful exotic butterflies.
