State Hermitage

State Hermitage Russia may be isolated from the artistic centers of Paris, Rome, and London, but the Hermitage has managed to acquire a spectacular collection of world art—more than three million items—spanning the years from the Stone Age to the early 20th century.
The museum occupies six buildings along the Neva River, the leading structure being the confection-like Winter Palace.
This gloriously baroque, blue-and-white structure was finished in 1764 and over the next several centuries was the main residence of the czars.

The museum’s focal point is Western European art—120 rooms in four buildings ranging from the Middle Ages to the present day.
Rembrandt Van Rijn, Peter Paul Rubens, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, Titian, da Vinci, Pablo Picasso, Paul Gauguin, Vincent Van Gogh, and Francisco Goya are all represented here. For in-depth tours, contact Glories of the Hermitage.
