Lots of walking involved and lots of people inside, but it's worth it. We brought strollers for the 2 kids, very light maclaren stroller that we can easily carry when the kids are asleep as we continue sightseeing. Definitely a must in St. Petersburg.

The Hermitage is without a doubt one of the finest museums in the world. With its glorious baroque architecture it's a beautiful place to visit. Within its walls, you will find a cornucopia of art treasures from all over the world alongside those entwined with Russia's imperial past. Its many portrait galleries and antiquity exhibits will leave you speechless. Not... More

There are several good reasons not to miss this famous sight. The area of Palace Square where the museum is located is rich in history and significance. There is so much to see because the rooms are just stunning! The museum has amazing collection of furniture and art masterpieces spread throughout the whole museum. I would recommend to join some...

It is a breath taking experience to see the beauty in the back. There are 1,000 fountains and all they were working when we went. The beauty inside is also breath taking. One wonder how everything was made such a long time ago. Definitely is a day trip. It is a long way from the city. We had a package... More

An experience of a lifetime. Staggering beauty and an art / sculpture/ antiquities collection that must be in the world's top three if not the finest. The buildings alone are incredible. It would take weeks to cover it all and a good guide can provide the direction you need based upon your interests plus history and insight, so worth considering.... More

The Hermitage museum was the winter palace of the Romanov dynasty, quite some town house this, destroyed in WW2 and rebuilt to its former glories. You can see why there was a revolution here, lavish and ostentatious don't come close! The building is a brilliant setting as a museum, collections of busts Roman, Greek and others to rival if not...

We spent the whole day at the Eremitage, first we visited the Modern Collection, afterwards the Winter Palace, Old and New Eremitage - do book a tour, otherwise you'll queue for hours and get lost inside...

Take a whole day to see this great museum with thousands of historical items. Check the opening timing and days before you go as museum is closed on every Monday.

It would take years to see it all, but it is worth spending a day to see the bits you would like the best. State rooms and priceless treasures. Unforgettable.
