ST. PETERSBURG MUSEUMS - WORLD ART

Through the centuries Russian tzars and the nobility actively collected Fine Art from all over the world. The royal collection of World Art was founded in 1764, when Catherine the Grat bought a collection of paintings from Berlin (which started the collection of the Hermitage). All major suburban park-and-palace estates have extensive art collections that are frequently put on display at various locations. Grand Palace and Hermitage Pavilion in Peterhof and Yekaterininsky Palace in Pushkin have halls with walls covered with paintings from floor to ceiling.
