The Winter Palace of Peter I is a unique architectural and memorial monument of the first quarter of the 18th century. The official residence of Peter I was located in the territory which is now occupied by the Hermitage Theater. In the preserved part of the palace there is a memorial exhibition dedicated to Peter the Great and his era.
In the rooms of Peter the Great — the Cabinet, the Dining Room, and the Turner — the furnishings were recreated, including authentic objects that belonged to the emperor. The so-called “Wax figure” is exhibited here - a posthumous sculptural portrait of Peter I.
