Wonderful tour

An incredible combination of history, art, and architecture. Vadim focused on the highlights of the museum, showing masterpieces of art and design. I feel as if I had a personal tour!

I very much enjoyed the course. I liked that it covered the history of the building and various rooms as well as an overview of the art. I have been to the Hermitage; the course refreshed my memory and taught me new things. I would be interested in other courses focusing on the various collections in the museum (Impressionist, Dutch and Flemish, Italian, etc). Mr. Malinovsky did a good job of balancing the history of the building with the art in a limited period of time.
