The Hermitage Museum is housed in the Winter Palace (and some other buildings), the main residence of the Russian imperial family. Located on the bank of the Neva River, this Baroque-style palace is perhaps the major attraction of St. Petersburg.
The Hermitage Museum was founded in 1764 when the Russian tsarina Catherine the Great purchased a collection of 255 paintings from Berlin. Today, the Hermitage Museum is the largest art gallery in Russia and one of the largest and most respected art museums in the world, with 2.7 million exhibits from Ancient Egypt to early 20th century Europe. It includes works by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, unique collections of Rembrandt, Rubens, French Impressionists (Renoir, Cezanne, Manet, Monet, Pissarro), plus Van Gogh, Matisse, Gaugin and sculptures by Rodin.
