Tretyakov Gallery on Krymsky Val shows Russian art from an unsual perspective: it houses a collection of artworks, created after the Revolution and belongs to so-called social realistic" style. While not quite social, and definitely not realistic, pictures of this style show daily life of Soviet people not as it was, but rather as it should be. Everything looks too polished, too nice: everyone is healthy (not to say fat) and well-dressed, all streets are clean, all buildings are new, summer never seems to end, and Lenin is a paragon of wisdom. If you are not Russian, it's highly probable that you've never seen anything alike.
