The Hermitage Museum: This is a place that lives up to its reputation. A visit to this amazing place will make you still ask for more even after staying there for days! It is a place filled with the Western European art history. The gallery was first opened to the public by Nicolas 1 in 1852, although it was Catherine the great that started the collections. The collections were greatly increased during the posts revolutionary period. Private items such like that of the Sheremetyevo, Stroganoff and Yusupovs were seized by the state government. The museum is the oldest and biggest in St. Petersburg. More information about the Hermitage Museum can be gotten from www.vacation idea.com/Russia.

Peterhof Grand Palace and Gardens: The palace which is not very big (contains about 30rooms) is open to foreign tourists all over the world between 12pm to 2pm and 4pm to 6pm everyday except on Saturdays. The palace was enlarged by Rastrelli for Empress Elizabeth, and was redecorated by Catherine the great. The paintings, chandeliers, and furniture in the palace are all original. The palace has a hall called “the Chesme hall” which is full of large paintings of the destruction vof the Turkish fleet at Cesme in 1770 by the Russian. The East and West Chinese Cabinet, the picture hall and Peter’s study, are some of the attractions in this palace. It also has a throne room(biggest in the palace).

Peterhof Grand Palace and Gardens

The palace was majorly destroyed by the Soviet when Stalin, in his bid to thwart Hiltter’s intentions of throwing a party at the palace, bombed the place himself. Although the palace had since then been reconstructed, but it does not still erase the fact that the original main palace was totally burnt down. It is located at UI Razvodnaya, St. Petersburg, Russia.

Lower park: This place is made up of gilded fountains, statute line lanes, picturesque canals, etc.,making it St. Petersburg greatest point of attraction. It is located at St. Petersburg, Russia.

Yusupov Palace: Located at Nab Reki Moyki 94 in St. Petersburg Russia, this palace has the best 19th century interiors in the whole city. Although the palace was built by Vallin de LA Mother in the 1770s, the palace was last owned by Prince Felix Yusupov, who was once the richest man in Russia. Grigory Rasputin was murdered right there in the palace in 1916.
