"Royal" Hermitage Tip by Sharrie

Hermitage, Saint Petersburg: 279 reviews and 544 photos


I've been trying to find out how this French carriage ended up in Russia. It's from the 18th century.

Import & export?

Speaking of importing mode of transportation.
I once met an American couple & they were traveling around Europe for 3-6 months.
Met them in Germany.
I was told they bought a BMW in Munich & intended to take it for a spin all the way to Scandinavia & then to ship it back to the states at the end of their trip.
It was a good idea, really. Considering that they'd save a great deal on car rental & having a new car when they returned home! But it's only probable for the Americans, I think.
The import tax for cars in Asia are horrendous! I must say it differs in different countries in Asia though.
