Я б хотела рассказать об удивительном месте, где я люблю особенно бывать, это музей "The Hermitage".

I live in St.Petersbourg. More than nine millions people live in St.Petersbourg and all of them are very proud of their city. My town is famous for it`s monuments, institutes and museums. There are a lot of banks, large firms and factories.in Russia one of the best galleries is the Hermitage. It’s located in St. Petersburg. One of the largest and oldest museums of the world, it was founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great. And it has been open to the public since 1852. It consists nearly of 3 million items of art, including the largest collection of paintings in the world. The collection of the State Hermitage includes more than three million works of art and artefacts of the world culture. Among them are paintings, graphic works, sculptures and works of applied art, archaeological finds and numismatic material.
The priceless collections of the Hermitage, one of the world's most famous museums, are preserved in a beautiful complex of palaces, which is striking for the harmony of its architectural rhythms and its commensurate proportions. Talented architects created, in the course of a century and-a half, a group-of palaces for the principal imperial residence - the Winter-Palace, the buildings of the Small, Large and New Hermitages and the Hermitage Theatre. These buildings serve to this day as a precious setting for the treasures of world art. The place itself where the Hermitage palaces are located in St. Petersburg is associated with the most important events in the city's early history. It was here, on the left bank of the Neva, opposite the main fortress, that in November 1705, a little more than two years after the foundation of the northern capital, Peter the Great laid the foundations of the Admiralty, which - was to become the major shipyard of new Russia. Soon the first wooden houses ... of naval officers and shipwrights, Peter's closest associates, began to grow around the Admiralty, primarily upstream the Neva, alongside its low bank. In 1705, on .the site of the present-day Palace Embankment with its imposing stone edifices, palaces-for the Admiralty commanders, Russian Vice-Admiral Fiodor Apraxin and Kornelis Kruis, a Norwegian by origin, were built. A little later, in 1768, Peter himself took a decision to move to the left bank of the Neva, closer to the Admiralty, where his first, wooden Winter Palace was under construction.
