Users of the TripAdvisor website have voted Russia's State Hermitage Museum the best museum in Europe, making it third in the world, according to the Interfax news agency.

«This year, the State Hermitage Museum repeated its 2014 success by becoming not only the best museum in Europe, but also one of the world's top three. The winners were determined by a specially developed algorithm that takes into account the number and quality of reviews and ratings of museums around the world from the past 12 months,» TripAdvisor's press service said in a statement.

The Hermitage was beaten to the top European spot by the d'Orsay Museum in Paris in 2015.

Foreign travelers referred to the Hermitage as «one of the main reasons to visit Russia and St. Petersburg.»

The Hermitage ranked first in a list of the top 10 Russian museums, followed closely by Moscow's Tretyakov Gallery.

The top 10 best museums in the world were headed by the Metropolitan Museum in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago. Russia's State Hermitage took third place. The top ten also included the d'Orsay Museum in Paris, the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City, and the British Museum in London.

«It's nice that our museum often ranks high in TripAdvisor ratings. I carefully study the reviews of travelers as they allow us to understand the ways in which visitors engage with the exhibitions,» said Mikhail Piotrovsky, the general director of the Hermitage. Text's Sourse:
