Hermitage Museum

Highly recommended
Symbol of the "capital of the North", the Hermitage Museum is at once a huge temple devoted to Art, a series of magnificent palaces and an ensemble of historic buildings that is alone worth the trip to St. Petersburg. This gigantic museum boasting nearly three million works of art, only some of which are on display in its innumerable rooms and annexes, resembles an enchanted palace from the Thousand and one Nights which you walk through feeling fascinated and unsure where you are going.
