The largest building of the State Hermitage Museum, which was built to the design of architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli in 1754-1762, was ordered by Empress Elizabeth of Russia as an official imperial residence. But the daughter of Peter the Great left not only a stunningly beautiful palace after herself. The first mention of cats that came to live in the Winter Palace also dates from her rule. RIA Novosti correspondent Viktoria Kazakova reports from the Hermitage cattery.
