Recommendation by Lemi

The prestigious State Hermitage Museum is the second biggest museum in the world. It was founded in 1764 when Catherine the Great purchased a collection of paintings from a Berlin merchant named Johann Ernst Gotzkowsky. Now, it is home to more than three million works of Western European art, occupying several historic buildings within the main complex. Drop by the Western Palace to immerse yourself in prehistoric artifacts; marvel at classical antiquities in the New Hermitage; or, explore the wonders of Italian Renaissance in the Old Hermitage. Admission is free every first Thursday of the month, so plan your visit then to save a few bucks!
