Tretyakov Gallery on Krymsky Val

Pure works of art.

You can not miss the importance of Russian art in this gallery that contains real masterpieces from thousands of years ago. Created by the Russian patron, Pavel Tretyakov, the gallery has turned into a benchmark for artistic centres thanks to more than 170,000 works created by Russian artists, and this isn't only due to their religious paintings, it's also due to their objects of modern art. After the start of the Second World War, and faced with the fear of losing one of the country's largest heritages, it was decided to take down the main artworks from the walls in the gallery and store them in a building of the Siberian opera. After the works were moved, a German bomber dropped two bombs on the gallery building in August, 1941. Of course, you can also enjoy the works here by Kandinsky, Repin, Nesterov, and other great artists of the 12th century. Take care with your camera because if you want to take photos, you have to pay extra at the entrance.
