This exclusive winter program features the Hermitage as a destination unto itself. With special access and private tours by Hermitage scholars, this is a rare occasion for those that truly appreciate art and culture to discover one of the world’s greatest museums. Exhibit specialists guide you through featured collections, affording you the privileged opportunity to experience a side of the Hermitage not open to the public. Your discoveries away from the museum allow you to immerse yourself in the glories of St. Petersburg, touring famous sights, dining at St. Petersburg’s finest restaurants, seeing a ballet or orchestral performance and mingling with your host family at a communal apartment. Each group is limited to 12 participants.

No one can show you Russia like Viking can. For The Real Russia experience, check out our exclusive videos and photo gallery.
