The Hermitage Museum gathers one of the world's most extensive collections of works along with the Louve, Paris and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

A mythical palace in the heart of Saint Petersburg. Explore the former residence of the tsars that has been transformed into a museum. During the virtual visit of the palace admire the Malachite room, the Staircase of Honor, the Throne room of Peter the Great, and explore the museum's most luxurious suites.

Over 200 masterpieces analyzed. In the prestigious painting gallery, admire major paintings from Leonardo da Vinci to Picasso. In the Antique Art galleries, gaze at the treasures of Scythian, Greek and Oriental art. Also discover the Museum's other collections: sculptures, objects d'art and watercolors. Uncover the secrets of these masterpieces by using a powerful zoom, looking at animated sequences and listening to five hours of recorded commentaries.

Three centuries of Russian history. Based on the history of the palace and the collections begun by Catherine II, you will relive three centuries of Russian history, from Peter the Great, who introduced his country to Western art, up until today.
