  • Here is really worth to visit! Only, of course, no need to try to combine the visit here with a visit to the main building of the Hermitage-immensity:) The interior space is wonderfully constructed, and new architectural finds fit perfectly into the creation of Rossi.

It was this part of the collection will be for the majority of the most attractive! On the second floor there are temporary exhibitions.
