St. Petersburg Day Tour 3rd Part; Inside Hermitage Museum (Winter Palace)

12 Days Solo Backpacking in Summer Russia (Trans-Siberia Train Joy Ride)
August 25 to September 05, 2017


After I visited the St Isaac Cathedral, I went straight to Hermitage Museum which is just around 200 meters away and located in the Palace Square, in-front of the Neva River. Hermitage Museum is open daily from 1000H to 1800H with admission fee of 700 Rubles ($12). Tour can be finished for around 2 hours, photography and amateur videography is allowed. Hermitage Museum is considered as the Russia's Louvre Museum and one of the largest and oldest museum in the world.

State Hermitage Museum is a museum of art and culture founded in 1764 when Empress Catherine the Great acquired an impressive collection of paintings from the Berlin. It has been open to the public since 1852. Of the six buildings in the main museum complex, five—namely the Winter Palace, Small Hermitage, Old Hermitage, New Hermitage and Hermitage Theatre—are open to the public. A hermitage is the dwelling of a hermit or recluse (people who live alone). The building was initially given this name because of its exclusivity - in its early days, only a very few people were allowed to visit.
