2011 год. Альфа-Колор The Hermitage is a great museum that belongs both to Russia and the whole world. Millions of people come to St Petersburg to visit it, but it still retains the meaning of its name given by Catherine the Great, its founder. Even nowadays the Hermitage continues to be a "place of retreat". In all ages and under all regimes people have used to withdraw here from everyday concerns of the outside world.
