If you enjoy looking at the the real artists from early russian history, just walk around and enjoy the paintings and sculptures in the Tretyakov Gallery. For instance, look what Ivan I. Shishkin painted (1832 - 1898)

By far the best museum for Russian art. Unfortunately sometimes there are repairs that make big parts of the gallery inaccessible.

This gallery has some wonderful artwork, of course, which reflect a complex and fascinating history and culture. I enjoyed my visit and learned quite a bit about Russian history.

One needs to visit the place, same as Ermitage in St.Pete, National Gallery in Londоn, Louvre in Paris and other similar places in the world. Ask for a guided tour. If you really go for arts - you need to spend more than 2 days for a quality visit.

What more do you need to say? It's full of Russian Masters and other European classics. This is the most prestigious gallery in the city. It is reasonably accessible for English speakers and I believe there is an audio guide. I was lucky enough to visit with someone who knows a lot about art history and I definitely recommend taking...

enjoy the works of Russian artists throughout time, starting with the medieval icon makers - as early as the 1100s all the way to the 20th century.

The place is basically a large mansion. Yet every room is full of great art. We took an audio guide and went from room to room, even though we tried to stop and enjoy only the pictures described by the audio guide it still takes over 3 hours. You do not notice the time if you like art, before we... More

Discovered exceptional Russian artists of the late 19th century that I had not heard of before as they are not usually included in the narrative of western art history. Well worth a visit!

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.
