  • I'd go with my school and it was wonderful. Had tables of Byzantium which depicted Christ and several maches

  • Great enthusiastic staff here and it is huge though you would not think so on first sight - goes underground- very assessable, give yourself at least an hour to stroll around. 
  • Great exhibits from the Byzantine period!! The Hermitage of Saint Petersburg report really unique!! Paintings, jewelry, religious items, all spread out in front of you with grandiose way!! What saddened me but the Hermitage Exhibition and lack of staff, it was closed some sections of permanent exhibition! In the nice garden that Caldera, there is a beautiful coffee!! Surely, you must visit all!!!
