Palace Square and the Hermitage



For 200 years the vast Russian empire was ruled from this block in the heart of St Petersburg. This is one of Europe's great squares, lined with colourful yet elegant edifices and dotted with monuments commemorating Russia's victory over Napoleon. It has witnessed Bloody Sunday in 1905, the Bolshevik's grab for power in 1917, and all-night democracy vigils during the 1991 coup. The square is dominated by the rococo fantasy of the Winter Palace, residence of tsars from 1762 to 1917 and the largest part of the famous State Hermitage Museum. The Hermitage with its huge collection of artworks is Russia's largest and most famous museum.
