The Winter Palace is not only the main part of the world-famous Hermitage Museum,
but also the palace that used to be the main residence of Russian Emperors for more than two centuries.
This is the true heart of the whole empire, where lives the memory of brilliant balls, gala receptions and such important events
in the political life as coups, decisions about war and peace, signing manifestos and two revolutions with the fall of monarchy.
