The Hermitage also known as the Winter Palace is without doubt the Jewel of Russian Cultural Crown, the second largest Art Museum in the world, housed in an Opulent Palace makes its the most sought after “must see” Palace in Saint Petersburg. Because it is such an exquisite palace there are huge lines or queues of visitors during Summer months. Our professionally guided tours are popular because you get to see the highlights of the museum which would otherwise be an overwhelming experience to take in all the magnificent artworks and pieces if you were to do it your own. One could literally spend weeks exploring all the halls and galleries this is why the guided tour is popular.
START: PALACE SQUARE: TIME: TO BE DETERMINED
Peterhof is an exquisite early 18th century palace with glorious gardens next to the Gulf of Finland. People come from all over the world to see her spectacular FOUNTAINS , that are an engineering marvel, as they run by force of gravity without pumps.
“Peterhof Fountains – are the soul of Peterhof gardens” – a Russian artist once said. More than 100 fountains spread over more than 102 hectares (over 250 acres) of spectacular garden landscaping. Its one of the 3 most visited tourist attractions on offer. Worth a visit.
This Opulent Palace is located away from the city centre in a small town called Pushkin. It came to house the world famous Amber Room, it was built as a gift to Catherine l (not as is often mistaken Catherine ll ) by Peter the Great. The palace received royalty from all over the world in opulent splendour. During WWII it was used as Nazi HQ and some believe it was the Germans who “stole” the Amber Room during this time. Carefully rebuilt, its baroque halls now house the famous Amber Room.
