St. Petersburg – The Hermitage – Day 3

The focus of our day was a visit to the Hermitage. As you can see, it is an extremely popular place. Fortunately our tour entered via another (much shorter) line.

The building is beautiful inside and out, starting with the lobby stairs, beautiful ceilings and elaborate floors. It used to be the Winter Palace and the official residence of the Russian Tsars.

The art inside is amazing but there are better pictures online (especially ones without 10,000 people taking selfies in front of each painting).

P.S. I can’t believe we are in Russia!
