The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the largest museum in the world in terms of the number of works on display. With its 3 million works and 230,000 m2 of space, the museum was inaugurated in 1764 and is located on the banks of the Neva River. It includes a part of the Winter Palace, residence of the Russian monarchs until the Bolshevik revolution in October 1917. The Winter Palace, an imposing building in Elizabethan Baroque style, was designed by several architects, including Bartolomeo Rastrelli.
