Aerial Tour of the Exterior Layout of the Winter Palace (2)
The aerial below shows the Winter Palace from the east looking west to the Admiralty, with Palace Square on the left and the Neva on the right.
In the lower right are the New Hermitage and the Small Hermitage with its rooftop garden.
The eastern side of the Winter Palace is marvelously visible with the state rooms including the Large Church. On the west side of the Large Inner Courtyard were the private apartments of the Imperial family.
