I’m not quite sure how I feel about museums. Unless they’re the outdoor kind. Then in that case I love them. Indoor museums?? Not so much.
The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg is really hyped so since it was literally 300m from where I was staying, I just couldn’t ignore it.
I got there at around 11 a.m, bought my ticket for slightly more than 10 USD and headed in. I met another girl, from California, who was also travelling solo. She was trying to find someone who spoke English to help her get a ticket.
She was such lively company. We ended up touring the museum together and later on explored the city into the night.
My favourite part about The Hermitage would have to be the intricate interior design. Loved the architecture. And the sculptures.
The museum itself is really huge and even though we were inside for almost four hours, we only covered one floor. The first one. It’s the one with the most interesting art! 🙂
Always be kind.
