RUSSIA - The State Tretyakov Gallery & The Russian National Dance Show

RUSSIA - The State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow possesses a unique collection of Russian art which includes masterpieces. The gallery was founded by a Russian merchant and maecenas Pavel Tretyakov. He donated his art collection to Moscow city in 1892 and since, the gallery has become world famous. The gallery has 62 rooms and more than 170,000 different art pieces for visitors' fine appreciation. Paintings from different time periods, religious paintings and Russian artists' masterpieces are displayed. Entry tickets cost 450 RUB which is approximately SGD18 for an adult. Official website at

The Russian National Dance Show "KOSTROMA" - This impressive dance performance is performed by the national ballet company 'Kostroma' and has won the hearts of many audience around the globe. It is Russian's traditional performance at its most refined form. The troupe consists of 50 atists and 300 unique costumes exquisitely decorated with pearls, silver and gold. The costumes are specially custom-made and hand embroidered. This spectacular dance show offers great insights into Russia's traditions, culture and history in a magical way. I was in awe during the performance as each dancer was so precise in their dance movements with such grace and ease. Each ticket costs 1600 RUB which is approximately SGD64.  Official website at
