Lions at La Hermitage – St Petersburg, Russia

Lions at La Hermitage

On display in the courtyard of the La Hermitage Museum (aka The Winter Palace) in St. Petersburg during our visit was a collection of various colorful  lion statues. The Hermitage is one of the world’s largest repositories of art treasures in the world. Its collection is so vast that only one-twentieth can be put on display at any one time. We did not have adequate time to go through the museum but we did visit the grounds and this outdoor display.
