The Hermitage, aka Winter Palace, formerly the residence of Russian Emperors, was constructed between 1754-1762. This wondrous Museum now houses over 3 million pieces of art, so allow some serious time to explore it! The building itself is a marvel. My favorite pieces included works by Van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, Gauguin, Cezanne, Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, & Rembrandt. My goal is to attend one of the three-week summer sessions in order to more fully appreciate all the Hermitage has to offer.
