  • Beautiful building, decorated very modern. Liked that it hosts interesting temporary exhibitions. For sure worth a visit.

  • In St. Petersburg The Hermitage was the most important museum for me. I wanted to see the great collection of Impressionists as I love this genre. I was surprised the collection was not the main part ...  more »
  • Very contemporary Museum is, here you will find and Impressionist paintings, which were submitted with the collection in the main building, and a lot of new from storerooms, all on the top floor, with him and to start the review. Rodin sculptures here too. We liked it very much, the truth was able to overpower the only 2 floors, for 3:00.

  • It was great surprise to see such enormous collection of impressionists. Building itself is remarkable: classical outside - lofty and modern inside.
  • A welcome respite from the tour group hell across the square at the Winter Palace. Peaceful, airy, relaxing. Difficult to find the exhibitions which mostly seem to occupy the 3rd and 4th floors. Seems to be quite empty with a lot of rooms having no exhibits... I wonder if we were there in between shows or if this is the regular state.
  • Great architecture and renovations. Besides the art pieces, walk through the floors and room, it is a unique building
  • Very nice impressionist museum
  • as part of Hermitage it is good. It reminds me the British museum.

Where to stay in St. Petersburg

For luxury hotels with a price tag to match, you can't beat the city's historical heart--Palace Square--and Nevsky Prospekt, the main avenue that connects the square to the Neva River. The area around St. Isaac's Cathedral, at the west end of Nevsky Prospekt, also offers a great selection of luxury and mid-range options. If you want to see the other side of the city, consider staying on Vasilyevsky Island, at the mouth of the river. Increased competition means that St. Petersburg now offers a wide range of inexpensive but funky hostels scattered throughout the city.
