Hermitage, Saint Petersburg: 279 reviews and 544 photos
Once you have entered the hermitage, it is advisable to leave your belongings in the vestibule and to go to the toilet first. As there is a long journey coming.
It is also possible to rent an audio-guide near the entrance.
Then you enter via the Main gallery. This gallery is filled with big columns and lots of beautiful statues.
One of these statues is the Laocoonte.
It is a copy after the antique, and was made in marble by Paolo Andrea Triscornia (1757 - 1853).
I believe that the original Laocoonte can be seen in the Vatican museum in Roma.
Michelangelo used this original Laocoonte sculpture as a source of inspiration for his sculptures.
