The Hermitage's magnificent collection of European porcelain comprises several thousand items. The main part, eighteenth century porcelain, is displayed in room 271, the former church of the Winter Palace, decorated by Stasov after the fire of 1837 in the style of Rastrelli.
As the visitors turn off the motor road into the lane lined by the stately pines, they see the main building with a tall spire. Its design is marked by clarity and restraint: . a facade in the depth of the court, an unassuming portico above the porch, illuminated in the dusk by the ancient lamps, plain smooth walls with the tall windows, set in white-stone platbands.
