The Hermitage Museum guided tour (Winter Palace)
The Hermitage is the most visited museum in Saint Petersburg. It is the absolute leader in terms of the number of visitors (3 million per year), and in terms of the size of the exhibition, comparable with the largest museums in Europe.
The exhibitions in the Winter Palace are so large that it is possible to keep coming here for far more than just one week.
In the Hermitage you can find the masterpieces of Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Rembrandt, Titian, van Dyck, Rubens, and Caravaggio. Nonetheless, there are rooms with applied arts, primitive art, objects of antiquity, and more.
We usually focus our attention on the paintings; this rich collection outdoes a lot of other European museums.
Our tour option of a general overview of the Hermitage is calculated to last 3-4 hours, but it can be adjusted in accordance with your personal preferences.
