by Leipzig

The Hermitage Museum is the largest art gallery in Russia and is among the largest in the world. The museum was founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great. Nowadays, the Hermitage houses about 2.7 million exhibits.

As you can see on the photo the musum is quite popular. Unfortunately I had only one day in St. Petersburg and couldn't visit the museum. Next time I bring more time to visit the exhibit.
