Itinerary

This tour is available in two options. Tretyakov Gallery walking tour and Tretyakov Gallery walking tour with transport.

Walking tour starts by the main entrance of the museum.

The Tretyakov Gallery houses one of the most celebrated and extensive collections of Russian art and artefacts in the world. The gallery is named after the financier and entrepreneur Pavel Tretyakov (1832-98), who donated approximately 2,000 works of Russian art from his own private collection to the city of Moscow at the end of the 19th century.

Along with his paintings, Tretyakov also generously donated his own house and surrounding buildings, which became the original premises of the gallery.

The gallery's collection now comprises the entire spectrum of Russian art including an impressive collection of icons by the artist Andrei Rublyov, 18th century portraits, 19th century Realist works, 20th century Romantic, Symbolist and avant-garde canvases and displays of graphic and applied arts. The Tretyakov's magnificent collection of Soviet art is now housed independently in the enormous Central House of Artists, opposite Gorky Park, and is well worth a visit for the admirers of art.

You will be returned to your hotel at the end of the tour.
