This is an old building. A spectacular staircase but in the whole its just a massive art gallery. If art is your thing then great. Architecturally it's better from the outside. Inside it is crowded. Couldn't see the davinci because of the crowd of people....More

The palace is very big. We could not cover the whole palace. Half a day is not enough. It is a beautiful palace.

It is important to plan in advance what you want to see and in which building. Note that the Impressionists moved to the yellow building in front of the Winter Palace.

This place is just too big to go through in a couple of hours. Be prepared to spend a minimum of a half of a day. The lines are long and sometimes very congested. Be aware of the peddlers on the streets surrounding the palace....More

we were able to leave, grab a bite and return but our tickets were purchased by our guide and I dont know if they were an ordinary ticket. I do know that we used a special entrance and did not stand in line.
