Visit one of the biggest ART museums of the world with a local guide!


We will visit one of the biggest art museums of the world. Starting from former residence of Russian Royal family Winter palace where you will see Throne hall, Ball room we will continue with Renaissance art like Da Vinci, Rafael, Michelangelo. 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 :)

A Recent Review of this tour

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.
