It was one of the most stunning churches I have ever seen. Try different angles for a new perspective.

The Hermitage is one of the most famous art museums in the world. It houses many of the world’s finest painting, sculptures and art works. Notice the green drape around the outside of part of the building. We noticed that when a building was under repair, they would drape the outside and paint it with the way the building would eventually look.
