St Petersburg Russia Russia private tour, personal tour
The tour to the Hermitage is much more than just a visit to an art gallery. Besides the fact that Hermitage possesses one of the largest collections in the world (about 3 million exhibits, including paintings, sculpture, jewelry, applied art, furniture, etc. ), it is located in 5 buildings along the Neva River and General Staff building where the works by French Impressionists and modernists are displayed. The main Royal Residence of Russian Imperial family - the Winter Palace, where the world famous gems are kept, also shows its splendid interiors and keeps memory of the Bolshevik Revolution that succeeded in one of its 1500 rooms. Beautiful baroque styled building of the Palace was designed in the middle of the XVIIth century by Italien Architect Rastrelli, and the first royalty to move in was Catherine the Great - the one to start the collection in 1764. During this tour we will talk not only about art from ancient to modern times, but about history of Romanoffs, Russia and Europe as well.
