St. Petersburg is the second largest city in Russia after Moscow with a population of 5 million people. It was founded by Russian Tsar Peter the Great in 1703. Between 1712 and 1918 it served as the capital of Russia. Since the early 18th century a large portion of palaces for the Royal Family and Nobility were designed by the best architects from Western Europe and built in St. Petersburg. From the time of Peter the Great and Catherine the Great it became fashionable among the wealthy to collect objects of art. During the Revolution 1917 the best private collections of artifacts were nationalized by the Lenin government and consolidated in The Hermitage Museum.
