Winter Palace

Winter palace

Then we went to the Hermitage. It is a giant complex which includes the Winter Palace. This is a view of some of it from Palace Square. We spent several hours here with a lot of other people in really hot, humid conditions. It made it hard to appreciate. The palace itself is unbelievably resplendent and it has wonderful artwork. We are going here again tomorrow when it is forecast to be even hotter than today.
