MUSEUMS

St. Petersburg is often described by locals as the museum city - and not without reason. There are over 100 museums, ranging from the vast Hermitage to small apartment museums honoring some of Russia's greatest writers.

The collection of the State Hermitage includes over 3 million works of art and world culture artifacts. It contains paintings, graphic works, sculptures, works of applied art, archaeological artifacts and numismatic objects. The collections occupy a large complex of six historic buildings along Palace Embankment, including the Winter Palace, a former residence of Russian emperors.

THE HERMITAGE MUSEUM

This Palace Ensemble, widely known in Europe and bearing the status of a "building of federal significance" in Russia, once belonged to a princely family. Today, it hosts government and diplomatic meetings, international conferences and symposia. The names of many Russian public officials, leaders of St. Petersburg and heads of foreign states are recorded in the Yusupov Palace Guest Book.

THE YUSUPOV PALACE

The exhibition is based on the collection of artifacts gathered by key players in the Revolution, including their own personal effects, documents, posters, pamphlets, and banners. Of particular interest are the belongings of politicians, statesmen, scientists and military leaders, among them the 19th century liberal Sergei Witte, Nicholas II, Lenin, Gorbachev and Yuri Gagarin.

THE MUSEUM OF POLITICAL HISTORY OF RUSSIA

The State Russian Museum is the world’s largest collection of Russian art, housed in a unique architectural complex in the historical centre of St. Petersburg. Today, the area of the museum complex is more than 30 hectares. The collection is accommodated in buildings that are outstanding monuments of the XVIII-XIX century architecture.

THE STATE RUSSIAN MUSEUM

The museum is located in the center of Saint Petersburg at Shuvalov Palace and contains more than 4,000 works of decorative applied and fine arts, including gold and silver items, paintings, porcelain and bronze. A highlight of the museum's collection is the group of nine Imperial Easter eggs created by Fabergé for the last two Russian Tsars.

THE FABERGÉ MUSEUM

Kirov’s museum is located in the famous House Of Three Benois, one of the largest pre-revolutionary St. Petersburg tenement buildings. A comfortable apartment home that met the most demanding tastes, took a solid and wealthy people. After the October revolution and the nationalization of private property, flats changed their owners. In addition to the memorial five-room apartment you will see two hallways, bathroom and kitchen.
