Cruise Day 7 – Part 6 – The Hermitage Period Dress

St. Petersburg, Russia

In the small throne room, there was a display of costumes worn at court in Russia during the 18th and 19th century. Each display was protected by huge plexiglass boxes to protect the material from being touched by the public. Our guide indicated that several of the dresses were so old that they were about to disintegrate into a pile of dust if not handled properly.

The displays were placed all around the throne room floor you got the feeling of walking around a room filled with people from the past.
