You need whole day if you want to be able to see the whole gallery. It is packed with interesting pieces. The area where gallery is located is packed with interesting streets and churches. Do some research about the area.

You’d better have a free day to visit the place. Lots of artworks and many well known masterpieces. You can take a brochure to navigate at the place.

Time very well spent. I had a wonderful time. Russian paintings of many eras. The Modern Art is not represented. The Impressionists ( Russian ) and painters of the 19th century were my favorite. Russia had many exquisite painters, not well known in the West....More

Plan at least 3 hours (it will not be enough) for the tour. Guide is absolutely necessary and I would not say that the electronic ones they provide in the lobby are worse than an always running person repeating the same stories unemotionally.

We choose to visit the gallery on a rainy day, with no previous information, excepting the well-known name of the gallery. We were very well surprised by many vivid, realistic, bold-coloured classical paintings, linked to Russian landscape, people and historical events. The museum has "human"...More

If you have enough time, extend your visit to a few days since the gallery consists of 60 halls each suggesting a wide and really good selection of Russian art. Auido guide is strongly recommended. Enjoy Schedrin’s city views, Venetsianov’s rural life and Repin’s realism....More

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
