See the breathtaking Grand Cascade, a series of 64 fountains, 37 gilt statues and 3 waterfalls. Following a Russian lunch, return to the heart of the city to visit the famous Hermitage Museum. Discover Russias largest art museum with an astounding collection of over 2 million pieces of art. Founded by Catherine II in 1764, the collection is housed in four buildings, the most impressive of them being the Winter Palace.
