State Tretyakov Gallery

The State Tretyakov Gallery is one of the biggest and most famous museums in the world. It was founded in 1856 by the merchant, benefactor and collector Pavel Tretyakov, and in 1892 he gifted the gallery to Moscow. The historical building is located in one of the oldest city districts - in Zamoskvorechie.

The richest collection of the Russian art from XI till the beginning of the XX century is exhibited here. in the Ancient Russian section of the Museum the visitors can enjoy priceless icons of XII-XVII centuries, including the faimous Andrey Rublev Trinity. And of course here, in this gallery, you can see such masterpieces as "The Bogatyrs" by Viktor Vasnetsov, "The horsewoman" by Karl Brullov, "The girl with the peaches" by Valentin Serov, "The morning in the pine forest" by Ivan Shishkin etc.

The building of Tretyakov Galery is eye-catching in itself. It was constructed in the "Russian stile" in 1904 on sketches of Viktor Vasnetsov.

The St. Nicolas church-museum in Tolmachi is included to the complex of Tretyakov Galery. There you can find the greatest shrine and at the same time world-famous artwork – The Theotokos of Vladimir.

    “What to see in Moscow? There are many options. As for us, we went to Pokrovsky Sobor straight after buying CityPass. According to the guidebooks, it is one of the best places to visit in Moscow. We saw Pokrovsky Cathedral on many postcards and knew that it was a religious symbol of Moscow, that’s why it was our first choice. And only then we went to the Kremlin. Being so individual the exterior and interior of St. Basil’s Cathedral are impressive. It’s a true eye candy! We really liked the picturesque view of the Red Square and the Moskva River from the cathedral viewpoint. By the way, using the pass we skipped the line which was great! The line was huge during the FIFA World Cup. Apparently, it is not so easy to get the tickets to St. Basil's Cathedral during the high season. With Moscow СityPass you just need to show it to security guards and they will let you go to the ticket office to validate the pass. Inside the church you can also get an audio guide. Highly recommended!”
