We went to this after visiting the other Tretyakov Gallery. It has an interesting collection of early paintings by Marc Chagall and the painting are more modern in general. It's not as large/expansive as the other gallery (many of the rooms were closed) but it's not a small collection by any stretch of the imagination. Worth going to if you're... More

The Tretyakov museum is actually two museums of Russian art. They are not actually all that close together. This one, on Krimsky Val, holds some fabulous classic early twentieth century art pieces, including Tatlin, Goncharova, Malevich, Kandinsky, El Lissitzky, and a recreation of a Rodchenko Workers Club from from the 1920s. There is also a large collection of more recent... More

Check their website before you go for hours. In fact, you should do that for all attractions. I reached Moscow in afternoon and went to the gallery right from the hotel. They were open till 8PM. Awesome Icon Painting collection. One amazing place to be. Look in Utube before you go to know what to expect. Go to the museum... More

This gallery has a fantastic display of Russian artists. Modern artists and soulful paintings were displayed in huge exhibitions. We wondered at these great works of art. We were excited to see Russian art through the eyes of artists totally new to us. And of course, the work by Kadinsky was an added bonus.

In this vast building are displayed Russian modern art works. Kandinsky is probably the most famous artist displayed. Was much more impressed with the State Tretyakov gallery which houses older Russian art, but this is also quite good, if you're into modern art.

Being in the Museon Art Park, north off the Gorky Park, on the other side of Krymsky Val(Embankment) Avenue, we also saw the Tretyakov Gallery in the building of Contemporary Art. Thing is that in 1985 the Tretyakov Gallery, we all know, merged with a gallery of contemporary art in the mentioned building. In front of this building of Modern... More

Both the Tretjakov Gallery's are a must do if you want to understand the Russian soul a bit. Do not only watch the portraits (and other paintings) hanging at the wall but also picture yourself a photo gallery of the (mostly) women who work there. They might tell you even more about it. Do not miss the portrait of princess... More

Staying in Yakimanka

Neighborhood Profile
Yakimanka acts as Moscow’s evergreen lungs with prime beaches on the Moscow river. All the benefits of visiting and living in Yakimanka are gathered at the Moscow river embankment – three parks: Gorky, Muzeon and Neskuchny garden shape this green stripe with museums showing the hippest contemporary art. The area is full of activities for your eyes (museums), mouth (restaurants) and feet (sport and dance-wise). Access anywhere is easy, just hop on a river boat and continue your journey throughout the city.
