Hermitage Entry.jpg

St. Petersburg, Russia

Up the stairs we go as we are entering one of the most incredible art museums in the world. A former royal palace, the Hermitage holds an array of art works that span the range of European creation and Russian veneration of religious icons. Very few museums can even rival the Hermitage, even years after Stalin sold some of its Rembrandts and other treasures to the West to help finance the failed experiment with communism.
