The Hermitage Palace and Museum

by Adrian on July 3, 2012

Probably the best museum in the world…

There are art galleries, there are museums, there are the great museums of the world and then there is the Hermitage. An unrivalled collection of art treasures housed in the magnificent palace from which the Romanov tsars ruled the Russian Empire, the State Hermitage will inevitably be the focus of any first visit to St Petersburg, and rightly so.

Yeah, it was pretty good if you like that kind of thing. Amazing rooms and amazing opportunities for photos (if patient and lucky enough to get a clear view without visitors).

Museum fatigue ensued.
