Its collections comprise over three million items, including the vast collection of paintings of the most prominent artists including Da Vinci, Rafael, Rembrandt, Rubens etc.The Winter Palace is the most famous part of the Hermitage public museums. It was, from 1732 to 1917, the official residence of the Russian monarchs. Situated between the Palace Embankment and the Palace Square, adjacent to the site of Peter the Great's original Winter Palace, the present and fourth Winter Palace was built and altered almost continuously between the late 1730s and 1837, when it was severely damaged by fire and immediately rebuilt. The original project was in 1732 created by architect Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli.
