On my own on Monday

We are spending the weekend in the Hermitage but my husband has to go to meetings on Monday, leaving me on my own until my flight home at 5pm. I will have seen plenty of art and gilt in 48 hours, but I enjoy history (and want to be warm indoors). What should I do in this short time? Also does anyone have any restaurant recommendations? We're staying on Nevsky Prospect and are looking for authentic St Petersburg meals! many thanks

I can suggest you to spend some time in the Russian museum also and to see Russian paintings. In the Hermitage it will be almost only European art. For your child our circus could be an interesting and unfogetable experience. There is a good restaurant Hutor Vodogray just infrant of circus on Karavannay sreet. Enjoy our city! Masha.

State Russian Museum, Savior-on-the-Spilled Blood church, museum of Ethnography - all these sights are located near each other and very close to Nevsky prospect.

Yusupov palace is another point of interest.

Or a day trip to Catherine's palace to see the Amber Room

Definitely the State Russian Museum. I have spent a day at the Hermitage and enjoyed it greatly, but I much prefer viewing Russian art. It gives me an opportunity to view the Russian lands and people and culture through the eyes of Russian painters and plastic artists.

In fact, I am studying up for my next visit to the State Russian Museum... on March 13, 2010. Yahoo!
