Hermitage Museum - St. Petersburg

Maybe one of the most famous and must to see places in St. Petersburg is the Hermitage Museum. Normally i am not very interested in museums, but having seen Hermitage my ideas had changed.

It is one of the biggest museums in the world and i would highy recommend to see it. It is a palace of three floors where each floor consists of different rooms. Mostly paintings of different artists from different countries and times gets the largest area. Especially i was suprised to see so much Pablo Picasso paintings in this museum. Museum contains also old things from the time of tsars in Russia. Most of the things are related with the Peter the Great, who is the founder of St. Petersburg.

Just walking at the museum, without looking to pictures carefully would take nearly two hours. If you try to look detailly everything and read the information about it, one day wouldn't be enough i guess. In general the Hermitage Museum is a nice, interesting, need to see place and if i find a chance would like to see it again. Take this place to your list if you are in Russia also.
