CITY GUIDE / ST. PETERSBURG / ARTS & CULTURE / THE STATE HERMITAGE MUSEUM

One of the world's largest and most famous treasure houses, the Hermitage's collection counts over 3,000,000 items and represents an unbeatable reference of the history of world culture from the Stone Age to the 20th century. Along with the Winter Palace, the Czarist main residence, built to the design of Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli from 1754-62, it occupies six stunning buildings forming the city's most remarkable architectural ensemble. Currently undergoing a radical reorganization in collaboration with AMO, the think-tank arm of Office for Metropolitan Architecture, the aim is to turn the Hermitage into a 21st century prototype for museums.
