The Winter Palace, Part II
If you only spend one minute on each painting in the museum, it would take 11 years.
If there is any architecture that keeps surprising me with time it has to be The Winter Palace or nowadays know as The State Hermitage Museum. It leaves a deep profound impact upon a viewer which words and pictures cannot describe. It is also no wonder that some of the greatest minds in history have in someway had a connect with this masterpiece. A whole book can be written on this subject, but I don’t want to attempt to go there here. Instead I hope these photos will bring you closer to it, and remember much of the complex is open to the public to enjoy.
