This gallery is housed in the beautiful old building and has great paintings done by Russian artists. We enjoyed seeing so many beautiful paintings and learning about Russian artists. We were glad that we visited this museum.

I strongly recommend a visit to this breathtaking gallery if you want to discover the masterpieces of Russian art. I loved it and thanks to this visit I discovered how great and original are Russian painters. Do not miss it!

This gallery will provide a great education into Russian artists and therby their history. It also has a large amount of ancient icons from churches all over the country. Get the audio guide to help you through.

The art work is beautifully displayed - well worth a visit but I would recommend a guide who can highlight specific art works as there is a lot to see.

Definitely worth a visit, though I wouldn't personally bother going twice. The audio guide is worth getting as it's cheap, but is very superficial and doesn't even have a track about the portrait of Gogol (very strange). Some beautiful pieces, and very interesting to see...More

A very big gallery museum, they have great collections! Count about 3 hours to spend inside. The young kids won't get bored because they have many things to see. It's children friendly place.

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
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
