  General Staff Building
by Canadienne

Initial plans were for the entrance of the Hermitage to be located on the Palace Square side, so that people would first view the Hermitage entering through the arches of the General Staff Building, then line up and enter surrounded by the impressive square.

When we visited, entrance was still from the Neva embankment, but signs were posted that the "new" (originally planned) entrance would be in use from late May 2003.

Address: Palace Square (Dvortsovaya ploshchad)
