St. Petersburg. City tour, Hermitage.
The second day of your stay in St. Petersburg will begin for you with a sightseeing tour of the Northern capital of Russia. During this tour you will be able to see the most famous sights of the cultural capital, including: St. Isaac's Cathedral (photo-stop), Admiralty, Neva, Menshikov Palace, Sphinx at the Academy of Arts, Bronze Horseman, Promenade des Anglais, Wedding Palace No. 1 and much more will open to your sight.
After a guided tour, you will plunge into the enchanting beauty of the Hermitage
Many tourists come to St. Petersburg simply to visit the Hermitage, one of the greatest museums in the world, which in 2014 celebrated its 250th anniversary. A visit to all its 350 exhibition halls will entail a walk of more than 10 km, and once it was calculated that it would take more than 9 years to look at each item for an instant. The Hermitage houses amazing examples of Italian art of the High Renaissance, as well as unsurpassed collections of Rembrandt's paintings, an extensive collection of Dutch and Flemish masters - not to mention the fabulous treasures from Siberia and Central Asia, Egyptian and classical antiquities, as well as Persian and Chinese works of art, among many others. In addition, there are interiors of the Winter Palace itself with its magnificent staterooms, where the kings once occupied the courtyard, and the Provisional Government was arrested by the Bolsheviks.
We must assume that in these rooms you just need to believe and stand in the middle of them, trying to absorb their rich and sometimes turbulent history, as we believe, one of unforgettable life experiences.
