A gallery that give you a good guide for the history of Russian paintings, from tradition of Orthodox church mural paintings to the morden development. You get to see how ways of portrait paintings changed from influence of French academies to self creations. You find portraits of Pushikin, paintings about Anna Karenina...... It's pity we did not have much time... More

This gallery should be among the "must visit" for any visitors come to Moscow, and to Russia. Huge collection of painting from different ages of Russian artists that can easily be a whole day visit - and by the way - don't forget visit the cafe right next to the gallery - walk to your left immediately after walk out...

Amazing collection of art work by Russian Artists. The gallery is very well laid out. The floor plan though in Russian only, is very easy to follow. You can easily spent 2 hrs or more there.

The State Gallery is a huge collection of Russian painting stretching over several hundred years. The gallery feels a bit tired and a product of the Soviet era, but is masses together most of the great painters of their era, with portraiture of leading writers, composers and other cultural icons of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. For a visitor... More

This is a place you should visit while being in Moscow. Very good collection of Russian art. I think this is not only interesting but also important to see in order to understand Russian history and people.

To be fair,this wasn't as terrible as expected - but unless you're keen on Russian art then this is a long haul. The audio is expensive. One of the few galleries to have what looks like a decent cafe - wrong!, you have to get coffee from the kind of machines you find in hotels,then realise that none of the... More

Said to be Russia's finest and richest collection of art. Something for everyone! Our guide, Tatiana (who had a passion for art) added to our experience with her subject knowledge. She was truly engaging. The Gallery had exhibits showcasing the development of art in Russia from its beginnings with the painting of Icons to more abstract works.

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.
