|Rembrandt's The Return of the Prodigal Son|
True story about what it’s like in the Hermitage. So we walked into a large sea foam green room with an absolutely magnificent gold trimmed ceiling (so basically like any other room in the palace) and I briefly looked at some of the pictures. One picture in particular caught my attend, I said hmm this looks familiar, and I continued to marvel at the architecture of the place the Tsar’s called home. So after my friends and I had explored for a few hours, we decided that we were going to search out some of the most famous paintings in the exhibit. and lo and behold, the painting I had passed up earlier was one of Rembrandt’s most famous painting: The Return of the Prodigal Son.
Here's just one more phot of the interior of the Hermitage. Let's just say that I know why there was a revolution in Russia now. The pictures don't do this place justice. The actual museum is something you have to see sometime in your life. Yep, write it down in your bucket list now.
