St. Petersburg, Russia: Winter Palace

The State Hermitage Museum is a huge complex, with several different parts. After entering the building, visitors have the chance to walk through the winter palace first.

Room after room is decorated in over-the-top fashion. But which one to show here? I picked a shot of this gold room, but that's not really fair to everything else in the place.

The structure went through some changes over the course of 200 years, but the finish was memorable. The Communists stormed the place in 1917 to cap the Russian Revolution.

Maybe a video will work better, especially if it comes with music:
