Amazing Palace and Museum. Best to book a couple of the guided tours. Get there early and yes, there will be thousands of people there, but, enough room for everyone.

Incredible collection of art. The building itself is worth a visit. Each room is more impressive than the other. Impossible to miss.

They say it would take 11 years to see everything in this museum, I think we did it in 6 hours. Make sure to eat a good meal before you go, the lines to get even a snack are very long.

We were guided through the museum on a set path. We didn't have time to stop and admire any of the paintings. It's the second largest art museum in the world. The collection is evidently bursting at the seams and some parts of the collections are being stored across the square in a building not open to the pubic. The... More

The quantity and quality of the architecture and artwork is incredible here. The best place to see in St. Petersburg if you could only see one. Very impressive place.

The Hermitage Museum has so many wonderful works of art, that it would take you a month to go through it, and you would enjoy each day! They have numerous works by Picasso, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Velasquez and many, many more. The interior of the museum is a work of art by itself. The grand staircases, high... More

Possibly the best museum in the world! You could spend an all month there and you wouldn't see half of it. Can't get much better than this.
