Wonders of The World


Winter Palace, St Petersburg, Russia

An absolute masterpiece of Russian Baroque architecture, Winter Palace is St Petersburg's most iconic building. The lavish former residence of the Tsars is now home to the Hermitage Museum, filled with incredible treasures and an impressive art collection. Sitting on the banks of the Neva River, several different palaces were built in the 18th century, but the gleaming building that sits here today was built by Baroque architect Bartolomeo Francesco Rastrelli from 1754–62. With over 1,000 intricately decorated rooms and halls, the palace is a magnificent sight.
