Hermitage

During my trip I visited Hermitage (Winter Palace) - a great museum of art and culture in Saint Petersburg. I was really amazed by all the magnificence I'd seen there. 
For those, who don't know, Hermitage - is one  of the largest and oldest museums of the world, it was founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great and has been opened to the public since 1852. Its collections, of which only a small part is on permanent display, comprise nearly 3 million items, including the largest collection of paintings in the world. The collections occupy a large complex of six historic buildings along Palace Embankment, including the Winter Palace, a former residence of Russian emperors. Apart from them, the Menshikov Palace, Museum of Porcelain, Storage Facility at Staraya Derevnya and the eastern wing of the General Staff Building are also part of the museum.
 As you understand, i's so huge and includes a lot of different collections, such as Egyptian antiquities, Jewellery and decorative art,  Italian and Spanish fine art, Knight's Hall,  Dutch Golden Age and Flemish Baroque, Russian art and many others. There are also a bi gallery of Neoclassical, Impressionist, and post-Impressionist art - and that became my favourite one. I fall in love with great paintings of Van Goth, Gauguin, Picasso and, of course, Matisse.


In my previous post I'd shown you some pictures form Hermitage and now I'd like to show you pictures of my look from that day.







I hope you'll like it!

I was wearing a bid Dandelion flower from our Moldavian designer Aliona Kononova and all the people looked at it interestedly!






And don't forget to hype it! :))
