The Tretyakov has two galleries. The new one is by the river opposite Gorky Park while the older is a little more difficult to find. The new offers a fabulous collection of "modern " Russian art while the older has literally dozens of masterpieces. Both...More

Over the years, I've visited the Gallery four times. This time was as enjoyable as all the others. Not only did I enjoy the exhibits, but the cafe is quite nice. Simple offering, good seating, quick service.

This is a huge art gallery filled with Russian artworks from the 11th through the 20th century. Although I was unfamiliar with most of the artists, many of the paintings seemed to be of high quality. Many were large. I skipped the icons.

Well worth a nice visit, this museum contains a wonderful historic collection of Russian art. Take your time and feast on this collection.

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
