Step back in time to the days of the Tsars with a visit to Russia's Hermitage Museum. The complex includes six historic buildings, including the fabulous Winter Palace, the former home of the Russian royals. It is without a doubt the most impressive attraction in St. Petersburg and boasts nearly 2,000 doors and windows, over a 1,000 windows, and as many halls and rooms. If you are a lover of art history, then is the absolute granddaddy of all museums. It was founded by Catherine the Great in the mid-1800s and contains one of the largest collections of arts and artifacts to be found anywhere in the world. Among the nearly 3 million pieces are works by Rembrandt, Monet, Renoir, Michelangelo, Raphael, Cezanne and Leonardo da Vinci to name only a few. Even if you are not an art lover, wander into the Winter Palace to be transported back into a bygone era as you walk through its countless corridors...
