it's one of must-visit galleries in the word, with masterpieces of Russian modern artists. Don't also miss the Gorky Park closely

The Tretkykov is a wonderful gallery. If you are in Moscow, it should (actually they) should be at the top of your list. There are currently two locations of the Tretyakov. This review is for the main location, which focuses on Russian art up to about the time of the 1917 revolution. There is another, dedicated to more contemporary art... More

It's a huge art museum, with many rooms of different art style and exhibitions. If you like art, you can spend a week just going there.

My first Question is why Russian painters are not More Well-known in the West. The Quality of the Paintings is difficult to describe, and my suggestion is that every art-lover who visits Moscow, visit this museum. I recommend spending 1 - 2 hours here, but many will need more time.

A visit of Moscow should always include this unique gallery, which portrays a wealth of Russian art. I am not keen of any art gallery in the West that contains such a comprehensive collection of Russian paintings from different periods.

Originally, this was a museum of Russian art in European context. The Soviets changed that, robbing the collection of all Western paintings, that were transferred to other museums. Lately, Tretyakov Gallery returns to its roots, becoming a very open-minded cultural institution, with breathtaking exhibitions in its Engineer Wing, and in its new part on Krymsky. Never miss the temporary exhibitions,... More

For me this was an eye opener to great art that is rarely seen. I loved the organization of the rooms. The periods. The artists. The stories behind each painting. It is an exceptional collection in smaller manageable museum. Highly recommended.

Neighborhood Profile
Zamoskvorechye
It wouldn’t be a mistake to call Pyatnitskaya street the main axis of this neighborhood – turn one direction and you’ll find the Tretyakov Gallery in Lavrushinsky Lane, turn another – a hip Scandinavian restaurant. Old churches now embrace contemporary life with style and grace. Going to Zamoskvorechye is like visiting during the times when it was a medieval Russian quarter, but with a modern twist of 20th century buildings pushing themselves into the 21st century with new businesses opening weekly. Stroll down Pyatnitskaya to taste dozens of global cuisines – from Ukrainian and Georgian to Thai and American.
