Sankt Petersburg is one city you should visit at least once in a lifetime.
Apart from the fact that it is known as the second largest city in Russia, it has many touristic places for you to visit. One of them is the Hermitage Museum. It is better to decide in advance if you need to go and visit the museum. Instead of staying in queue to buy a ticket you will have it purchased online. The difference of price is not big and the time saving costs are bigger.
While you will see people staying in line for purchasing a ticket, you will easily get in once you have the printed online ticket. Hermitage will ask at least one day of your visit to Sankt Petersburg – this if you have time and if you do not use one of the organized tours. These tours tend to make everything faster and then you do not seem to take anything back with you and remember what you saw.
The building in itself is wonderful; it has very rich collections and a lot of things to see. If you truly are an art lover you will appreciate all the paintings there. Some of them – the ones of Anne Leibovitz are one of the most captivating. They have paintings that cover all the creation periods from her lifetime. Taking your time and feeling each painting you will bring them into our times and feel them like contemporary.
In case you want to immortalize this visit and make some inside photos, you should pay some money in order to be allowed to. Anyhow, nobody will actually check if you paid the money for taking photos or no.
Enjoy your time here!
