Enjoy a 4-hours VIP Tour to the unique Storage Centre of the State Hermitage Museum!

Dear travelers! If you have already visited the State Hermitage Museum or if you would like to see something unique and broaden your horizons, I would recommend you to book this tour to the Hermitage museum Repository.
It was constructed in the Northern part of the city in "Srtaraya Derevnya" district (just 40 min drive from the downtown). During this tour you will discover a great exhibition hall with Royal Carriages and a special glass room with the huge Turkish Tent which was presented to Catherine II by Turkish Sultan in 1793. You will as well visit a room with more than 1000 pieces of original 18-19th C. furniture used by the members of the Royal family and wealthy Noble families. After that you will proceed to another room with special moving glass showcases and the collection of Russian and European Paintings inside of them. At the end of the tour to the Hermitage Museum Depository you will be able to see the restoration process of ancient sculptures. This is something special, I promise to you!
