Spanning through years and styles the gallery offers an amazing selection of Russian art. Highly recommandable. Make sure you have 2-3 hours min. There is also a second gallery with 20th century art.

Very full collection of Russian painters of all epochs. Many rich merchants had purchased paintins of Ayvazovsky, Repin, Ivanov-Vodkin, Veretschagin, Serov and many many other famous painters. There is big collection of ancient icons and so on.

Tretyakov Art Gallery is one the most popular art places in Moscow. You can see there a lot of really beautiful pictures of different times and branches of art. I like mostly the hall with icons. There are extremely old that's fantastic! Care about your shoes: it must be comfortable:) The Gallery is too large.

There is no better art gallery in Moscow than the Tretyakov Gallery. Huge art collection, nice exhibition, if there is nasty weather in Moscow, lets give a try. Please remember that the exposition is divided into 2 parts - old paintings on Metro Tretyakovskaya and Modern Art collection situated in the New building located near Gorky Park. The modern exhibition... More

Great collection of masterpieces of Russian painting. A must. Be aware that even 'fast path' takes about 3-4 hours!

A long queue was outside when we got there and it has been open only one hour. To get in the waiting time was not long. The ticket cost 400 RUB. A lot of russian paintings room after room. We did make a list what we need to see before went there and added some pantings from their guide plan.... More

I think that 100% if you are in Moscow you have to go here. For me, the highlight of our trip there. Here you can spend a lot more time than you expect just to admire the beauty! I must say that there are many impressive masterpieces in each area of the museum, so I highly recommend you getting a... More

Please make sure you go early in the morning (at least 15 minutes before opening time) as it tends to get very busy with lots of groups (the queue was over 30 meters long outside at 10:15AM). Guided Visit or Audio Tour Recommended for people not familiar with Russian Artists and History.

Amazing art gallery, the best of Moscow. Mr Tretyakov did a great job collecting all those art pieces, and will explained, you can gather a great overview of the 19th century Russian history. Apart from that, invaluable icons and huge paintings make the visit unforgettable.

Staying in Zamoskvorechye

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.
