Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow: 23 reviews and 27 photos


The Tretyakov Gallery is the biggest collection of Russian painting in Moscow. Pavel Tretyakov, a Moscow merchant, founded the gallery. At that time many people collected paintings simply to decorate their own houses, but Tretyakov dreamed of setting up a gallery for public.
On 15 August 1893 Moscow city Gallery proudly opened its doors. Today a whole complex of buildings is one of the world’s largest museums. Now the Tretyakov Gallery holds more than 50,000 works of painting, graphic art and sculpture.
