I recommend seeing the artwork in this gallery with a guide. Our guide picked out paintings by important 18th and 19th century Russian painters, related an interesting story about the scene in a painting, and provided background information about the artist and Russian art movements....More

Great collection of Russian paintings and a must-see in Moscow, despite Russian art is not so popularized in the world as French,for instance. Would also recommend a weekend concert in the Vrubel hall.

After reading about this museum I was expecting to see more interesting art. The lines for tickets are ridiculously long and wr waited in the rain forever which obviously didn't make for a perfect day.

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
