We arrived, and found out that the line was more than an hour... which was supposed to be still good! But - nearby the sign said - electronic tickets do can proceed immediately... read more

So that is first hint. Second - downstairs is a wonderful cafeteria reminding of Soviet times - atmospheric surroundings and tasty food with good... More

The Tretyakov has two buildings, one each for historic and contemporary art. Founded as a private collection and then expanded after its donation to the state, there are some remarkable paintings here, though given the volume of works it is necessary to get a guide to point them out. Don't miss the collection of icons.

Great to be immersed into Russian history through art, queue quite long, very warm inside so use free cloakroom for heavy winter coats:)

Thought I'm not a great fan of art, some of the paintings here were amazing, one's with reflection of water painted on the canvas left me spell bound. They charge extra 200 bucks if you want to click pictures though.

If a picture says a thousand words this will be an awfully long review! I'll just say if you like art then go, if you don't particularly like art go, you will by the end of your visit.

This is a must visit while in Moscow. It was my long life dream to visit this galery andit was truly a fantastic experience. As someone who is familiar with Russian artists, it was a thrill for me to see the original paintings of those great masters! Couple of hours of pure joy! Just go there and enjoy.

I had no intention of visiting the main building as that style of art doesn't interest. Unfortunately, my google map took me there. I had already paid and was inside before I realized this. From there I went to the new gallery which is near Gorky Park. It is a separate admission but worth the visit.

Wonderful collection of Russian art through the centuries. Well worth spending a few hours there or longer if time allows..

The Tretyakov Gallery is delightful. You can forget about the time in this place, if you like the pictures. If you are a guest in our city, you should visit the Gallery several times. You will not able to get around the whole Gallery at once. And you should remember, that Gallery doesn't work on Monday. And there are crowd... More
