There is nothing I can add to what has been said and written about the Hermitage. If you are in Saint Petersburg, you must go. But I must add that for the true experience of Russia, you must also go to see the Russian Museum.

It's a big space.. And the center of the city.. All the major sightseeing places are near by.. It has a 360 beautiful view from all sides.. Pigeons all over.. Offers horse rides and horse cart rides..

Hermitage IS the MOST beautiful museum in the world. Spending one minute per piece of art would require someone to spend 11 years there. But above all collections there, the museum itself is an architectural piece of art.

This really is a must see if in town but to see it properly, you will need two days. Amazing art with the royal rooms, spread over miles and miles of corridors and rooms. Great museum,

With over 3 million exhibits on over 1000 rooms, it would be nigh on impossible to see everything in one visit. We had not bought tickets on line, but waited no more than 3 minutes in line to buy them at the door. The 700...More

So much art to see. You could easily spend days and not see everything. The gilded state rooms are incredible of course, with so much ornament and detail. The most famous pieces are marked on the guide map, but it's best to explore on your...More
