"ST PETERSBURG : THE HERMITAGE" Hermitage Tip by swesn

Hermitage, Saint Petersburg: 279 reviews and 544 photos

  The excellent Hermitage Museum
by swesn

The Hermitage is a place where superlatives fail. The treasures held in this museum are incredibly spectacular. The collection is immense. Even without the exhibition, the architecture of the museum itself is tremendously magnificent already.

This palace is from where tsars ruled Russia for 150 years. There is the Winter Palace, the Little Hermitage, the Large Hermitage and the Hermitage Theatre. This is definitely one of the most impressive museums I had ever visited.

If you hold a ISIC student card, entrance is free. GOOD FOR YOU! You can come and visit its treasures for days and days and still you will not be able to complete them. If you unfortunately have to fork out R300 each time, and like me, you cannot afford to do this many times, you just have to treasure what you can absorb for that day.
