DescriptionMeet your private guide in the lobby of your hotel and go either walking or by metro (depends on the location of your hotel) to the Zamoskvorechye district where the Tretyakov gallery is situated. On your way to the museum you can enjoy one of the most beautiful stations of the Moscow underground - Novokuznetskaya (if you go by metro). During your 3-hour tour, you can admire great masterpieces and also get to know the rich history of Russian fine art. The gallery was founded in 1856 by a wealthy merchant and a famous patron of the arts Pavel Tretyakov, who had been collecting unique artworks and supporting Russian artists for many years. The works of such outstanding painters as Ilya Repin, Valentin Serov, Viktor Vasnetsov, Ivan Shishkin and Mikhail Vrubel are prominent in the main building of the gallery. This is the best way to experience the unique Russian spirit while looking at such magnificent masterpieces as Surikov’s “Boyarina Morozova” or Vasnetsov’s “Bogatyrs”. Combine the visit to the gallery with a stroll through the Zamoskvorechye (“behind the Moscow river”) district, located on the southern shore of the Moscow River. Follow a guide through its ancient streets and admire the diverse architectural styles for which this corner of Moscow is famous. You can finish your tour in the most favorite place of all Muscovites - Gorky Park.
