We won't miss a great collection of Rembrandts paintings.
After a short refreshing walk to the General Staff Building to see Impressionists we can take a cup of coffee and discuss everyday life in Russia, history, anything that you have interest in. I can help you to organize "on your own" part of tour giving you useful tips of a local.
If you are not a lover of Impressionists or Post-Impressionists I still advise you to get acquainted with the collection of Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Gauguin, Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse but if you insist we can substitute it with a visit to the most Russian church of our city famous Church of on Spilled blood :)

Elina was very flexible and able to accommodate last minute changes in the schedule. A very good & enjoyable tour. Elina showed her extensive knowledge of Art and the Hermitage. The French Impressionist works ebnable us to better interpret the genre and come away with a better knowledge of Russian artists.
