A lot of tourists mix up the various Tretyakov galleries around Moscow. This one is for classical Russian art. The one on Krymsky Val is mostly for contemporary Russian art. I advise you visit both, you can't see this kind of art elsewhere. Next to the classical one there is also a new modern building currently under construction. This Tretyakov... More

Place was a little difficult to navigate but well worth the effort. Definitely get the audioguide, the commentary is very interesting. The galleries get quite cold so don't leave your jacket in the cloakroom. Only regret is that we didn't budget enough time for this place because the collection was larger than expected. Half a day recommended.

There are bigger museums however since this museum is showing Russian arts only it is defined as a Gallery. Combine a visit in this gallery together with a visit at the nearby canal Luzhkov bridge. It is a nice lovers bridge with hanged locks and brides and grooms taking pictures and hanging locks throwing the key into the canal. Sometimes... More

Neighbourhood 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.
