Fine Arts Museum. This museum is located in the former private residence of Count Pototsky, which was purchased by the city and inaugurated in 1899. The 26 halls host a variety of intriguing exhibits - from ancient icons to modern art. Kiprensky, Topinin, Ayvazovsky, Vrubel, Roerich, Benua and Levitan are just some of masters whose art adorns the museum’s walls. Under the main body of the building there is a vast grotto with a vaulted ceiling. It imitates the natural cave with an artificial waterfall. A part of the underground passages, which has an exit to the vast park which slopes gently to the sea, has been preserved. Nowadays the grotto is opened for visitors.
