When you think on St. Pet's....
Apr 2021
...this is first what comes to mind.
A splendid lavish palace the city founder Peter the Great built as his winter residence.
It sits on the central Palace Square just by the Neva river shining in its green/white/gold colors.
Today it houses the world class Hermitage museum, in fact only a part of it, and it's a sight not to be missed when visiting.

Extraordinary experience
Oct 2019 • Business
This is a "must do" when you are in Saint Petersburg! Thr winter palace makes your memory go back in time when the Czars used to be on russian power.
It's absolutely amazing just to be there. Plus, this is a place where you always see wonderful russian artists performing by the streets around the palace!
Lifetime experience!

History brought to life
Dec 2019
Spent many hours touring this wonderful palace. Visited on a Sunday. It was very busy but there were people stationed throughout the building to explain certain rooms and artifacts located in them. Of note were school aged children, probably 8-12, with teachers and guides showing and teaching them the history of their city. All were well behaved and attentive. It was a plus to an already wonderful day of learning the history of a terrific city.

Not to be missed - part of the Hermitage building
Mar 2020
An iconic beautiful building - the Hermitage(s) are the extension to the original Palace; the family rooms of the Romanov family are a small part of the Palace; there are a number of reception rooms and public areas - this space holds a variety of family and historic objects that are separate to the object d'art that were collected by the various Monarchs.

One of the attractions you can't miss in St. Petersburg.
Feb 2020
This Palace is one of the most beautiful and interesting buildings around the world. I think you need a guide to visit it since it's not near the city. Perhaps you may rent a car or go with public transport. We went with a private guide. It is important to have some expert to teach you or instruct you in order to understand the main historical items, in this way, you may feel more impressed by the history of Peter I and of course visiting such a great place as this Palace makes more sense. You see real works of art and lovely rooms. You learn a lot about a magnificent part of the history of this great nation..

Part of the Hermitage...

Fabulous opulent museum with different exhibits through the year - direct walk thru to/from the Hermitage. Do not miss the chapel "built without hands" - stunning

A Must Do, when in St.Petersburg
Aug 2019
Another fabulous building in St.Petersburg, connected to the Hermitage. We visited as part of a 2 day cruise ship excursion, so we got in with minimal delay and did not have any ticketing issues. Lots of expensive art objects, collected before the Russian revolution. Well worth the visit.

Gorgeous building
Feb 2020
Worth visiting. Keep in mind that it is part of the same building structure as the Hermitage museum. Tickets go for both. It is a breathtaking place. Good for study research, leisure activity or simply solo trip. Keep in mind the treasury is a separate museum and has a strict time everday.
