This is an amazing collection of classic russian artwork that illustrates how russian artists in history have influenced and been influenced by the other european masters. No propoganda here or patriotic stuff, just the most incredible, emotional, heart-felt work of the Russian masters.

Not much to see after being to the hermitage . Looks neglected and only is catered for Russian tourists and locals . Hardly saw any tourists there.

Yes there is a cloak-room, and they will store small luggage. I'm not sure if they'll accept suitcases or larger bags. Didn't see any.
