OF4***56Outstanding beautiflly looked after with massive number of historical interesting and superb collections. To do the Hermitage and all the associated buildings properly you need two days. Tour guides will falsly claim you get in quicker you do not as everyone goes on tour and no one goes without tour.....quicker without tour.Also book via internet and you have even quicker entrance with no queues . This magnificient Palace is a reason to visit St Petersburg alone and nothing else.Do not use taxi unless Russian local books and aranges fare. Eat before you go in.
OF4***56A must on any visit to St Petersburg. A superbly maintained historical beautiful Palace that is visited by umpteen thousands each day . Be prepared for some hours in queues even on a tour . Tour guides will tell you you get in quicker with them .... you don’t .The Amber room ( no photos under any circumstances ) is worth the visit alone.Get local transport cards for bus trolly bus and metro ( 5 days 431rub=46cny) and save a fortune.Do both of the Palace but one tour is still great.

If there is any place more magical than Saint Petersburg in the summer then you must let me know.
The sun never really sets in the summer which means whether you like it or not, you're ready for a party. The streets are filled with buskers and music fills the air.
There is absolutely no shortage of art and history on every corner but it is equally jolly with the follies of youth.
My only regret was not getting a hotel room with blackout curtains. The sun not setting means you're not settling. New York might be the city that never sleeps but Saint Petersburg was the city that wouldn't let me sleep.
Overall, it's a winning destination.
The creation of westward-looking Peter the Great, St Petersburg was intended from its inception as a display of imperial Russia’s growing status in the world. Fine-tuned by Peter’s successors, who employed a host of European architects to add fabulous palaces and cathedrals to the city’s layout, St Petersburg grew to be the Romanovs’ showcase capital and Russia’s first great, modern city. The capital may have moved back to Moscow following the revolution, but despite all that history has thrown at it, St Petersburg still feels every bit the imperial city with its historic heart largely frozen in time.
Whether you’re cruising along the elegant canals, crossing one of the 342 bridges in the city, or just watching them being raised in summer over the mighty Neva River at night to allow ships to pass through, you’re never far from water in St Petersburg. This has earned the city unsurprising comparisons to Venice, but the similarities don’t stop there: walking around the historic centre will reveal canals lined by Italianate mansions and broken up by striking plazas adorned with baroque and neoclassical palaces. North of the city centre there are also pristine beaches fringing the Gulf of Finland.
St Petersburg is an almost unrivalled treasure trove of art and culture. You can spend days in the Hermitage, seeing everything from Egyptian mummies to Picassos, while the Russian Museum, spread over four sumptuous palaces, is perhaps the best collection of Russian art in the world. Add to this world-class ballet, opera and classical concerts at the illustriou#tripgood performance halls, and a slew of big-name music festivals over the summer months, and you won’t be stuck for cultural nourishment. Contemporary art is also available at the fantastic Erarta Museum, the Street Art Museum and in the buzzing gallery scene.

Saint Petersburg is an enchanting city in Russia that is known for its striking Imperial Russian architecture. The city ressembles many of the great cultural cities of Western Europe and you might even think you're there at times.
The city is lined with monuments and churches and the insides are an absolute work of art. At the center of these attractions is the beautiful Winter Palace, which was the former imperial residence of the Tsars. The square outside it is also vast and engraved in history. Nearby you can stroll among the river, offering spectacular views of the city.
The city is lovely to visit in summer when the temperature is comfortable and the days are long. However I also recommend going in winter. Although the days are short and it's cold, it really adds for a more mysterious and interesting allure to the city.
The city also has a host of delicious restaurants which offer Russian cuisine at quite affordable prices.
Saint Petersburg is a great city full of things to discover, especially in winter the city is very lovely and mysterious.
Ice Canyon is an impressive ice structure and most visited spot.it is very cold area and only access by boat or by special helicopter to get there ,you can climb up to ice mountain.it is beautiful to see ,I suggests to visit.
At the Palace square of St. Petersburg. This vast expanse is definitely one of the most striking and spacious palace square in the world. I love how grand and expansive the place is. This is definitely the most famous public space in the city. It gets crowded at times but there will always be enough space for everyone. Definitely a must visit when you’re in the city of St. Petersburg.
I am just trying to find some Chinese culture moments in my daily life
#triplocal Saint- Petersburg is the city of inspiration and never-endless celebrations. Celebration of your talents and best ideas for life. You feel really creative living here. That’s why I am thankful to be the part of that city!
Around the plaza of the Savior on the Spilled Blood Church. These artists sell their works for a bargain. You can even have your own portrait painted/drawn on the spot. Such great talents need more appreciation.
Amazed by these beautiful carriages in front of the State Hermitage Museum. The museum was closed that day so we had to postpone our visit. Just strolled around the vicinity and watched the buskers in the square.
