The Hermitage really is the highlight of any trip to St Petersburg. It's a beautiful building with an amazing collection contained within. We had a guided tour and I'd recommend this as the building is huge and if time is short you'll want to see as much as possible. As an added bonus we enjoyed a fantastic orchestral concert in the evening as part of our visit.

All visitors are accepted so make sure you visit early in the morning otherwise you will not be able to see the Museum properly. At a certain point I could not set my feet on the ground...........

Be sure to have a personal guide (The best is Timofey Kruglikev) as the lines are daunting! Timofey will keep you out of the lines. And only inside, he will direct you to the best of the best of this huge, amazing collection.

Amazing art collection,inside an overwhelmingly beautiful building.
I am glad we visited at a quiet time of year, I imagine the volume of visitors would be unbearable at peak times.

This is an amazing museum. Great collections. You haven't been to St. Petersburg if you haven't visited the Hermitage.
