Take 2-3 hours to walk through this gallery in a slow pace and see your favorite masterpieces. If season allows, walk towards the new Tretyakov gallery as well, along the river.

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

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
