The Hermitage

This grand ensemble of buildings, located on the bank of the Neva river, houses one of the world’s greatest art collections. Built up by successive tsars, the museum boasts priceless masterpieces by Picasso and Rembrandt, as well as exhibits devoted to prehistoric, Classical and Oriental art. The Hermitage also contains the Winter Palace, the pre-revolutionary residence of the tsars, and the headquarters for the Provisional Government after the initial 1917 Revolution.
