Saint Petersburg, the second largest city of Russia, is 300 years old. A comparatively young city it has always been famous for its monumental beauty. The streets, embankments and squares are in themselves works of art, created by great masters. A wonderful panorama opens from the banks of the Neva river, which is magnificently flowing through the city: the Peter and Paul Fortress and the Admiralty with their gleaming spires, Winter Palace, housing the world famous Hermitage, the Rostral Columns and fascinating bridges.
During its history St. Petersburg has become a witness to many memorable events and has been a home to many geniuses. It saw a powerful succession of Russian tsars, beginning with Peter the Great who was its founder, Catherine the Great, who made Russia a great state, up to the last Russian Tsar Nicholas II. During the Second World War the city survived in the 900-hundred-day siege but didnot surrender to the fascists. Its people restored their beautiful city and now it is an important cultural, educational and scientific center.

The State Hermitage is one of the oldest and largest museums in the world. The museum is located in 5 historical buildings of St. Petersburg, including the Winter Palace - the former residence of Russian tsars.
