What travelers say:

Outstanding beautiflly looked after with massive number of historical interesting and superb collections. To do the Hermitage and all the associated buildings properly you need two days. Tour guides will falsly claim you get in quicker you do not as everyone goes on tour and no one goes without tour.....quicker without tour.Also book via internet and you have even quicker entrance with no queues . This magnificient Palace is a reason to visit St Petersburg alone and nothing else.Do not use taxi unless Russian local books and aranges fare. Eat before you go in.

Additional Information


St. Petersburg’s State Hermitage Museum, or Winter Palace, stands among the Louvre in Paris, The British Museum in London and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York as one of the four largest art museums in the world. It was established when Empress Catherine the Great received a massive art collection in 1764, housing paintings, sculptures and other forms of art from various European countries. There are four major attractions not to be missed among the vast collection, including the Ancient Egyptian Art exhibit (Showroom 100), Peacock Clock (Showroom 204), Da Vinci’s “Madonna Litta” (Showroom 214) and Rembrandt’s “The Return of the Prodigal Son” (Showroom 254).
