The tour starts with many many not so interesting portraits that doesn't tell you much unless you know all the background. So, I guess that it maybe interesting if you are Russian and know the painted people. For me, it started to be interesting later on and I have to say, that it was really great. Many beautiful paintings (Bryulov,... More

I'm not into art galleries at all. But on my final day in Moscow I thought why not go and see some paintings since the collection is massive and has famous portraits of Tolstoi, Dostoevskii, Gogol et al. I splashed out on a cassette guide and that was a brilliant investment as it made the whole tour of the paintings... More

The Tretyakov Gallery ranks very high on any guide to Moscow and I am unsure why (now I don't really know much about art, so this could be why.) It was to me just another art gallery, nothing in comparison to the Louvre or the Hermitage. We did enjoy our time in here and there are plenty of great examples... More

I have been to the Tretyakov Gallery for a number of times, starting from the one during the school years and finishing off by showing it to my foreign friends. To my mind, it's a must-see as it is the biggest collection of exactly Russian art. It's definitely too big to see and appreciate everything from the 1st visit. Every... More

No visit to Moscow would be complete without a visit to the Tretyakov Gallery. For those interested in religious art and icons, note that Rubylov's original icon of the Old Testament Trinity is here, as well as several other of his fine pieces. Sublime, and yet many tour books overlook that important point. Also, you will find a fantastic array... More

If you're into fine art, you're not going to be disappointed with the visit to this place. Make sure you pick up an audio guide since the audio narration is an excellent compliment to the overall beautiful and amazing collection of paintings they've got.
