This historic art museum really needs no introduction. One of the largest museums in the world, there are over three million pieces of art that are stored in the archives. Only a small portion of this collection is put on display.

Founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great, this museum is also one of the oldest in the world. The Hermitage Museum is housed in six buildings, all of which are quite old and rich in history. Among the antiquities and pieces of art that are on display here, there are some fine examples of prehistoric art forms, neo-classical and impressionist art and many other important pieces of art from around the world.

The museum has to be the first pit stop in your trip to Saint Petersburg and one can take it for granted that not even a single second in this museum will be spent in boredom.
