The State Tretyakov Gallery


It is an art gallery in Moscow, Russia, the foremost depository of Russian fine art in the world. The gallery's history starts in 1856 when the Moscow merchant Pavel Mikhailovich Tretyakov acquired works by Russian artists of his day with the aim of creating a collection, which might later grow into a museum of national art. In 1892, Tretyakov presented his already famous collection of approximately 2,000 works (1,362 paintings, 526 drawings, and 9 sculptures) to the Russian nation. The collection contains more than 130,000 exhibits, ranging from Theotokos of Vladimir and Andrei Rublev's Trinity to the monumental Composition VII by Wassily Kandinsky and the Black Square by Kazimir Malevich.

Kolomenskoye Museum-Reserve


Kolomenskoye is a former royal estate situated several kilometres to the southeast of the city centre of Moscow, Russia, on the ancient road leading to the town of Kolomna (hence the name). The 390-hectare scenic area overlooks the steep banks of the Moskva River. It became a part of Moscow in the 1960s. During the early Soviet period, under the initiative of architect and restorer Pyotr Baranovsky, old wooden buildings and various artefacts were transported to Kolomenskoye from different parts of the USSR for preservation, so currently Kolomenskoye Park hosts an impressive set of different constructions and historical objects.
