8) Museum Of Modern Renaissance
This spectacular building was once a Masonic Temple, but was converted into an art museum by two Russian artists in the early 2000’s. Ekaterina Sorokina and Nicholas Shaplyko, the creators of this masterpiece, refer to it as a ‘Temple of Modern Art’. The building’s façade was modelled on an Incan ruin, while the interior of the building has a stained glass effect and is more reminiscent of the Sistine Chapel. The entire aesthetic effect the building brings is intense and surreal, with a style the artists have coined ‘Mystical Realism’. The interior is not freely accessible to the public, but tours can be arranged by appointment. If you can make a booking, you will be party to a once-in-a-lifetime experience of art and color. This showcase of intensive creativity and vibrancy is a well-kept secret and a breathtaking sight to see.
