On 7 December, we held the Hermitage Day as usual. Let me remind you that it is not the museum’s birthday – no actual document about its foundation exists. The Hermitage Day is a non-standard event, a major celebration that shows what the museum is in the city. From this year, it has become an occasion officially marked by the city.
