    The Raphael Loggia in Hermitage

    by Sharrie Updated Jan 5, 2004

    Beautiful, isn't it?

    Well, this is another copy.
    Yes, one from the Vatican Museum!
    The frescoes were copied on pieces of canvas & then sent to St. Petersburg in the 1780s to Catherine II.

    Another copy, but as Mark said, beautiful ones!

    Benois Madonna

    by Sharrie Updated Jan 4, 2004

    Madonna with a flower (1478) by Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was purchased in 1914. Leonardo was using the new technique of oil painting then.

    This throne hall is right at the corner next to the Fountain of Tears.

    I especially like this one because of its pink-colored marble. Beautiful, isn't it?

    Rare beauty

    by Sharrie Updated Jan 2, 2004

    This is the room where the walls are lined with velvet from Lyon & strewn with Romanov eagles. As named, the Throne is the centerpiece.

    Floor design... different in each room

    If you visit Hermitage spending here 8 hours every day and attend just 1 minute to every work of art you need 11 years to complete the mission!

    Some pictures are in my travelogue.

    Inside the Hermitage

    by don_kam Written Oct 18, 2003

    The highlight of little Hermitage.

    This room is really crowded in the day.

    You can visit it just before the closing at around 530pm for a clear view of the room!!

    (Hermitage closes at 6pm)

    On the same side as the palace square (other side from the Neva), there are 10-16 ft tall Atlantes holding up what used to be the public entrance to the Hermitage.

    This piece in the centre of the room has just been on show in a Dallas exhibition. It was interesting as I had already seen it in Russia.

    One of the world's best museums and they give you these great blue booties to wear so you won't harm the floor. Great for sliding.
