    Dear colleagues,

    I'm ashaimed to ask such a question but I've stuck here: is it possible to say "vo less interesting museum collection" ot is it necesssary to change it for 'no less interesting...? I'd prefer the second one, but am npt sure the first is false :) Thank you :)

    It has to be 'no', not 'not'. However, I personally would prefer "Another equally interesting..." as being shorter and clearer. But there's nothing wrong with your sentence, provided you use 'no'. :)

    Thanks a lot for this really laconic alternative, i.e. 'equally interesting', i liked it more)
