St. Petersburg is rich in its architectural buildings and museums. Every year, hundreds of thousands of tourists come to this city from around the world to enjoy these great architectural structures. Most of the urban architectural ensemble is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Three important components of the city are canals, palaces and cathedrals.
Among all the attractions of the city, museums occupy a special place. Basically, during the time a tourist is in the city, it is almost impossible to cover all the sights and museums of St. Petersburg. But the capital’s guest is simply obliged to visit the most interesting city museums.
The most popular and visited museums of St. Petersburg: the Hermitage, the State Russian Museum, the Kunstkamera, the Elizarovs Apartment Museum, the Water Museum, the Museum of Communications, the Naval Museum, the Museum of Urban Electric Transport, the Museum of Religion, the Zoological Museum, the Museum of the Mining Institute and the Museum of the Arctic and Antarctic.
The State Hermitage Museum is one of the largest and most famous art museums in the world. It is with him that tourists most often begin their acquaintance with the city. The museum exposition occupies more than 350 halls. The museum itself occupies six buildings that are located along the Neva embankment. The Hermitage has the greatest collection of works of art and cultural monuments.
The State Russian Museum is the first state museum of Russian fine art. The square of the Russian Museum is occupied by four buildings, which are located in the historical center of St. Petersburg. The collections of the Russian Museum include not only painting, but also sculpture, applied art, engraving.
The Kunstkamera is one of the oldest museums in St. Petersburg. It was founded by order of Peter I to study unique rarities created by human hands or nature. The museum collection has more than a million exhibits. To date, the Kunstkamera is one of the most visited museums in St. Petersburg.
The greatest interest for excursions with children is the Zoological Museum. The museum exposition has more than 30 thousand exhibits and is located on an area of 6 thousand square meters. The zoological museum presents animals from all parts of the globe. Some exhibits are world famous, for example, representatives of the mammoth era.
Also, excursions to the puppet museum and the museum of city and rail transport will be interesting for children.
A visit to the Naval Museum will not make guests bored. It is one of the largest maritime museums in the world. The main exposition of the museum occupies 10 halls, where the whole history of the formation of the Russian fleet is presented: from its birth under Peter the Great to the present day. The museum stores ship models, samples of marine equipment, flags and banners, maps and drawings of the ship structure.
The Museum of the Mining Institute was founded simultaneously with the Mining School under Catherine II. The exhibition of museum exhibits is located in 20 rooms of the main building of the institute. The museum’s exposition is divided into three elements: mineralogy, geology, and the history of mining technology development. The museum funds have collected more than 200,000 samples of minerals, meteorites, models of mining devices. The museum also features a unique collection of edged weapons and Faberge miniature jewelry.
Particular attention is drawn to the modern water museum. The museum exposition tells the story of the emergence of water supply, from ancient times to the present day. The greatest interest of visitors is attracted by the large-scale layout of the historic city with all the buildings.
Do not forget to take a camera and a camcorder on a trip; there are a lot of things to shoot in St. Petersburg. As well as lithium batteries for photographic equipment and flash memory for storing your impressions.
Museum guests will also be able to visit a tour of underground Petersburg.
Visits to architectural monuments and museums will also be interesting for excursions. For connoisseurs of palace interiors and mansions, we recommend visiting, for example, the Yusupov Palace, the Stroganov Palace, Peterhof, Savior on Spilled Blood.
St. Isaac’s Cathedral is a working monument-museum, where worship services are held on holidays. Visitors to the Cathedral will be able to climb the colonnade and explore the city from a height of 43 meters.
"Savior on Blood" is a unique museum in its interior decoration. The only one in the world decorated with mosaic panels, the largest in area of all existing.
The Yusupov and Stroganov palaces are famous for their interiors, which have been preserved since the time of Tsarist Russia. In the premises of the Stroganov Palace there is a wax museum.
We also recommend visiting the Tsarskoye Selo Palace and Park Museum. It was here that the famous Amber Room was located.
Peterhof is the most beautiful place in the vicinity of St. Petersburg. Amazing fountains, magnificent gardens, beautiful alleys and the restored Grand Palace with authentic interior items are considered by many to be superior in today’s decoration to the Palace of Versailles near Paris.
