Hermitage Museum

visit Hermitage Museum

A tour of the world’s largest art museum is an elaborate task. Nevertheless, Hermitage Museum never fails to captivate those who are artistically inclined with a dazzling collection of over three million pieces. Only a portion of it is on permanent display. Still, five historic buildings within the borders of the Hermitage are merely enough. Bringing together human artifacts from countless civilizations, the Hermitage is a cherished attraction in St. Petersburg. Pay a visit and embark on an exhilarating journey through time.

The state consists of Hermitage Theatre, Old Hermitage, Small Hermitage, New Hermitage, the General Staff Building, and the iconic Winter Palace. The Winter Palace is arguably one of the most celebrated structures in St. Petersburg. It once served as a model for the Grand Palace of the Kremlin. Mint-green and creamy white topped with golden notches will add a few fresh shots to your Russia album. Inside, a breathtaking assembly of European, Asian, and Eastern antiques awaits in the grand halls.

In total, the showcase artifacts and relics in the museum range from prehistoric art to Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, Hellenistic Greek, Italian Renaissance, Baroque, and local modern art. Beginning with Catherine the Great in the 18th century, the collection has undergone significant exponential growth. And today, most of it rests in the vaults below the main displays.
