Hermitage - The Palace, St Petersburg

Hermitage today is known for its opulence architecture and its collection of arts. The name, Hermitage means “a place of solitude” in French. It is an iconic building, representing the Imperial Tsarist Russia. Today, it is the largest museum in the world with over 3 million pieces of arts in its possession.

This Powerpoint slideshow presentation introduces the viewers to the most well-known rooms in the palace-museum, from an architectural angle. It is a briefest of all introduction to such a magnificent building. The only missing important room not included is the Tsar Nicholas Hall, which is not open to visitors to the museum. A sister Powerpoint slideshow presentation will be introduced later on the painting collection of the museum in the near future.
