London Museums and Galleries / Лондон: музеи и галереи

— Good morning, Sir!

— Good morning!

— May I ask you a question? I am a foreigner and would like to visit several museums of the city, but I do not know which to start with.

— I would advise you to start with the Tate Gallery Actually, there are three galleries in one. They are dedicated to British art, modern sculpture and modern foreign painters.

— Thank you for your advice. I have heard a lot about this gallery. I am also a painter and would like to see works by Van Dyck, Rubens, Vermeer, Holbein, El Greco, Goya, Velasquez, Gainsborough and Leonardo da Vinci. Which galleries contain their works?

— You may find all of them in the National Gallery. It contains all schools of European paintings from the 13th to the 19th century. You may also talk to experts there.

— It would be great! That is what I need for my next article.

— If you would like to know more about the history of Britain and London, you’d rather visit the British museum; there is a magnificent library there that contains many old manuscripts

— That could be great to read, what people wrote many years ago!

— Yes, but you can also walk along the streets of London and see the history in its ancient buildings and monuments. There are buildings dating from the 17th, 18th, and 19th century.

— Thank you for your advice. I am sure, my stay will bring me many unforgettable impressions.

— Wish you a nice stay in England!
