Today you will visit the Hermitage (the Winter Palace). With the possible exception of the Louvre, there is no museum in the world that rivals the Hermitage in size and quality. Its collection is so large that it would take years to view it in its entirety. The collection is displayed in 4 buildings built in the 18th-19th centuries, the home of the Russian Tsars.
Your guide will focus your attention on the highlights of its collection. The museum is especially strong in Italian Renaissance and French Impressionist paintings, as well as possessing outstanding collections of works by Rembrandt, Picasso, and Matisse.
The splendor of the museum is epitomized by the grandeur of numerous reception halls, such as the Throne, Ball, Malachite and Gold Rooms.

Your tour guide Kath was an excellent host and very very knowledgeable of every point of interest in St Petersburg especially the Hermitage museum.. Having never before visited Russia it gave me very different insight of a very fantastic country.

We did a private tour and had a good look around the hermitage and saw a good proportion of the highlights of the place. Thank you! Harry&Lucie, June, 2008
