THE STATE HERMITAGE - ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA
THE STATE HERMITAGE
ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA
The State Hermitage Museum is one of the five largest art museums in the world. It comprises five buildings filled with the finest collections of all main European art schools. The collections had originally been started by Catherine the Great and only grew larger over the generations. Today, the museum contains around 3 million exhibits and has 3 separate departments located in different parts of the city. The highlight of the Hermitage for me was seeing over a dozen paintings by Rembrandt which many of are shown here. I saw a lot here but there was so much we did not have time to see. Wold love to go back and spend several days here. You really need time to see these incredible works of art. This was awesome!!!
