Hermitage, Saint Petersburg: 279 reviews and 544 photos


For me, Hermitage is one the most luxurious palace that I ever seen in my life. This shows the great power of the former royal Russia. Walking through the rooms of museums, when you move from one room to another, you will see that every rooms are luxurious and grandiose. The Winter Palace in magnificent, with its marvelous Jordan Staircase and dazzling splendor of the many state rooms.
