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).

Come to St. Petersburg to see the most beautiful buildings, as well as autumn leaves.
St. Petersburg is like a weather-beaten old man. He still uses his profound historical culture and profound culture to create a peaceful and open attitude, telling the legend that the United States can save the world.
St. Petersburg is one of the first cities in the world to be built according to a unified style. It includes almost all the classic architectures of the world from the 18th to the 20th century and Russia. The architectural treasures are numerous, the city It is an open-air architectural museum itself.
Looking at it, the buildings in St. Petersburg are quite contemporary, and the city center does not see a modern building. This feature is rare in major cities around the world. St. Petersburg is enough to dominate the world's classical city. These buildings with centuries of history have both Baroque and Rococo styles; they are both symmetrical and destabilizing; they pursue both grandeur and sculpture details, and each detail embedded in the building is unique. The language speaks of the past of St. Petersburg.

It has been said that people who study architecture must go to St. Petersburg once in their lifetime. Not a fake, this is really a paradise in the architectural world.
The Hermitage Museum of the Winter Palace, one of the four major museums in the world, is not inferior to the Louvre, enough for a whole day;
Nevsky Avenue is very similar to the French Champs Elysees and the streets The flowers thought back to the Netherlands, and the European architecture on both sides of the river was like Venice.
European cities are really similar. Then the ancient prosperity, such a profound heritage, just like the glory of the Tsar period is still in sight.
Come to Russia, you can miss any city, don't miss St. Petersburg
Russia's most mysterious Winter Palace, Wen Qing's favorite museum! The world's top three
the former Winter Palace, formerly the Russian Tsar Palace; today's Winter Palace, has become one of the world's four major museums, with the Louvre in Paris, the British Museum in London, New York The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the same.
I have no words to express, seeing this giant art treasure house, what a dazzling, how shocking. At least, the tickets for these five hundred rubles are the most worthwhile in your lifetime!
It is said that the exhibition lines add up to 30 kilometers and are known as the world's longest art corridor. The palace is inlaid with various colors of marble, malachite, azurite, pebbles and jasper; it is decorated with gold and copper; it is decorated with various textures of sculptures, murals and embroideries; it is colorful and magnificent.
Tips: It is worth mentioning that the Da Vinci paintings that have been passed down to the world have totaled only ten paintings. The Madonna of the Flower and the Virgin Lida are displayed here. To take a photo, remember to enter the market in the morning. After noon, there are so many tourists, and there is almost no way to capture the air.
Known as one of the world's four major museums, the Hermitage Museum (commonly known as the Winter Palace), (the French Louvre, the British Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of the United States and the Russian Hermitage Museum), a large collection of art It takes a day for me to make a rush. Go in and remember to take the floor plan at the service desk. The clothes can be stored. The number of lockers for the backpacks is too small. Only the first batch of tourists can grab them. Tickets only support one entry, although there are cafes in it, but it is recommended that everyone should eat well and then go in. After passing the ticket gate, it is the stairs on the second floor. The corridor that turns right without going up the stairs leads to the restroom, coffee shop, gift shop and first floor exhibition hall. The essence exhibits are in the third building on the second floor (there are a total of three buildings that can be visited, connected). Before you visit, be sure to plan the route to avoid going back and forth. Otherwise, you can't stand the legs.
