Trip Report Saint Petersburg - State Hermitage Travel Report

Jump to last reply

The State Hermitage is a perfect example of mid-18th century Russian Baroque architecture. Calling it a Hermitage seems to be an understatement because the museum is everything but small. Website https://www.hermitagemuseum.org/

It’s impossible for a typical traveler to see everything in such a big museum with merely 1 to 2 days, or 1-2 visits; State Hermitage is the kind of place that a visitor could visit many times in order to truly understand and learn how marvelous the collection is. To me, the rooms are the highlights of my visit to the museum. Look at the adornments, the chandeliers, the engravings… as if the museum is a giant artwork itself!

The five Hermitage buildings are now connected and the museum ticket gives permission to the access to the entire museum ground. I suggest doing a little bit of research beforehand and learn about the location of the rooms (as time is limited) – these rooms were not exactly marked on the museum floor plan.

For the numbers and introduction of the rooms:
