What to expect

The Hermitage Museum houses more than 3 million exhibits, among them not only paintings but also antique sculptures, medieval applied art, cameos, ancient and 18th-19th-century gold and jewels, coins, archaeological finds and collections of the Eastern countries. The museum consists of six buildings constructed in the 18th and 19th centuries - the Winter Palace, the Small Hermitage, the Old (Grand) Hermitage, the New Hermitage and the Hermitage Theatre. You will wander through the spectacular state rooms of the Winter Palace, the former residence of Russian Tsars. This is one of the most striking buildings of the architectural ensemble. The gala halls of the Palace are what make the first impression on every visitor to the museum. They were created in different epochs of the Romanov dynasty and are intended to demonstrate the power of the Empire, its history, and military successes. The receptions of ambassadors were organized here, as well as court festivals and balls. The main purpose of the halls was to impress with luxury and at the same time accommodate a large number of guests.

The collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works in the Hermitage is one of the richest in the world. It is located in the General Staff Building and is home to about 850 paintings, among which there are masterpieces of such great painters as Eugène Delacroix, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh and Henri Matisse. The works of these masters allow you to get acquainted with the moods of French painting entering the 19th century.
