It's simply a must to visit the Hermitage Museum. Even if you’re not very fond of arts. It is the "Crown Jewel" on the museum list in St. Petersburg. The Hermitage is one of the most famous and largest museums in the world. It consists of 5 interconnected buildings. One of the buildings of the Hermitage museum used to be the winter residence of the royal family - the Winter Palace. The Small Hermitage is the actual birth place of the museum where empress Catherine II kept her private art collection. Very few people could be invited to Small Hermitage. The other buildings are: the old Hermitage, where they display Italian collection, the New Hermitage which was opened as public museum in 1852 and Hermitage theater where ballet performances are held. The museum has over 3.000.000 items in it. If you spend only one minute in front of each piece of art which is on exposition you will need 3 years. If you are restricted in time it’s better to take our guided tour which concentrates on the gems of the collection.
