What a wonder in terms of style, architecture, furniture, painting. One wonders how this was financed at the time of construction.

We took a guided tour of the Hermitage so we were in the Winter Palace. But that’s as far as it went. We enjoyed view the bulk of the Winter Palace from the outside.

Hi. Better late than never. If you can afford a guide, then have one. I visited the place without a guide and I think I missed a lot.
