Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg Overview

The Hermitage Museum is one of Russia's most important museums.

The museum has several exhibitions dedicated to various styles and eras, such as the Italian Renaissance, the Italian and Spanish fine arts, the Impressionists and post-Impressionists and so on.
