The Hermitage

Culture and History tour in St. Petersburg

Tour Price : $40-140 Duration : 1-4 hours Languages: English, Greek

Dear Guests, on this tour, in The Hermitage I feel at home. When I studied arts I came here for inspiration for my drawings.

The Hermitage is huge, and I can assemble any route for you. Usually I show the highlights, and it takes 1,5 – 3 hours to see it. It is not possible to see everything there at a time – there are more then 3 million exhibits!

The peculiarity of The Hermitage is that it is not just a mere picture gallery. It is clever, beautiful and unexpected mixture and combination of lavishly decorated rooms, paintings, sculpture, and furniture. You’ll never be tired there. Oh, you will definitely get tired but variety and constant change of the exhibits wouldn’t let you fall down.

During our tour you will know about the difference between Winter Palace and The Hermitage, and what is common. You will know how easily get through all its five buildings. Will get information how did look like The Throne Hall during the Soviet Power.

The Hermitage has more then 3000 exhibits. And the museum is not just mere exhibition which displays pieces of arts. It is a kind of research institute. They organize their own archeological expeditions to Mongolia, Black Sea, other regions.

The laboratory of scientific restoration of clocks and musical mechanisms is the one and the only in Russia and one of the few in the world. Here they revive objects, bring them back to life. Each of them has its own secret and its own history.


Visit of The Hermitage State museum is an opportunity to remind yourself that museum – ideally - determines your outlook. Museum teaches, museum enlightens, museum instructs. Only museums and universities can give you deep and serious knowledge, gives food for thought.

Besides the other things, you’ll see The Hanging Garden. It is one of the highlights of the museum. The garden is decorated with the numerous sculptures. For its restoration The Hermitage had been awarded «Russian National reward on landscape architecture».

The garden’s esthetics is connected with intellectual life of its epoch. Everything we look at, listen to, read, and wear, with whom we talk – forms our inner world. Regular gardens participate in formation and developing of our mentality.

Write me, and we’ll explore wonderful world of The Hermitage together.

Please, ask for indiviual tour and I'll gladly provide it for you.
