More About the Author

A knowledgeable source of information on Art History, Music and Russian literature

Hello, my name is Larisa Levanova and St.Petersburg is my hometown where I lived almost 40 years (now living in Brussels, Belgium). During my university years in Russia, I used to visit the Hermitage 3-4 times a week (you guess I was more interested in Art than following some courses) and today when returning to St.Petersburg, I never miss a chance to visit this gorgeous museum. Besides these frequent visits to the Hermitage, I have strong interests in ballets, opera, classical music, literature and historical monuments.

In the last ten years, thanks to my husband we lived for several months in a row respectively in Amsterdam, Paris, London, Helsinki and Brussels. Especially in the first three capital cities, I fully enjoyed numerous visits to their respective famous art galleries. 'Touring' these museums allowed me to make a comparison between them, and I realized that the Hermitage museum is a truly unique art gallery housed in preserved 18th and 19th century's palaces.

I am happy now to share my in-depth knowledge with you all through Kindle e-books. If you wish to comment on those and share your interest (passion) for Art, I will be very glad to hear from you. Just write to Larisa (at) DiscoverStunningRussia (dot) com

3.0 out of 5 stars Rather disappointing 1 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This guide did not come up to expectation as it was not very detailed and also the English grammar and construction is poor. Maybe her upcoming titles will be better?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide to the Hermitage Museum 20 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm just about to head off for a 3 week vacation to Europe with stops in a few places including St. Petersburg and started looking for guide books to provide me with a wealth of sights and information to make my vacation as interesting as possible. A friend recommended I visit the Heritage Museum so coming along "The Magnificent Hermitage Museum - One-day Guide with 10 Masterpieces of the St. Petersburg Museum" was a perfect moment of happy coincidence. The book really provides a rich detail about the beautiful museum, from it's history to the influences its had and, most of all, the wonderful art housed within it. Using vivid and helpful pictures to make the book engaging, it provides a great list of rooms and art to be sure to visit when at the museum. I think this book will be an excellent guide to the Hermitage Museum while I am there and I am really excited to put it to good use!

St Petersburg and the Hermitage are high on my bucket list which is why I purchased this book. Written by someone with a passion for the museum it is worth reading. although not written in a sophisticated style it does provide all of the necessary information to plan a visit.

I'm planing a trip to visit Russia's most beautiful places and I came across this guide which looks really good and has lots of good information. I'll take my Kindle with me so I'm pretty sure I won't need a guide :) More money left to spend on Russian vodka :)

If you just have 1 day this book is precious. If you have a little more time it could list a few more options.
