The Tretyakov Gallery boasts an astounding collection of Russian art, from ancient icons to Soviet paintings. Founder Pavel Tretyakov began his collection in 1856 with just two paintings. Ten years later, the collection contained over 2,000 works, and in 1892, he donated it to the city of Moscow. Since then, the Tretyakov Gallery has been one of the city's most important, popular, and visited museums. Its collection numbers more than 170,000 works, including Rublev's "Troika," Dionisius, the world's greatest collection of Peredvizhniki, Vrubel, Serov, Kustodiev, Mir iskusstva ("World of Art"), and early 20th century avant-garde art.

We recommend concentrating on one thematic group per visit, since it would be impossible to take everything in. Or, best of all, become a regular visitor.
