in Pavlions Room

From the superior landing of the stairs, through the Room of the Field marshals (called thus because before, here, of the walls they hung pictures of Russian field marshals) and by the corridor, ador a swim of carpets, goes to the Room of the Pavilions (architect Andri Shtakenshneider, 1856) located in the contiguous building with the Winter Palace - Small Hermitage- (work of J.B.Vallin of the Mothe, 1764-1767).

In the decoration of the room diverse styles were used: elements of the style to mudejar, the architecture of the Renaissance and the Antiquity. The room is full of light, slender white marble columns maintain an elegant gallery, the solar rays are reflected in the rock crystal of 28 enormous scraps. Rythmically the drops of the four "sources of the tears" fall.

"The source of the tears" in the Room of the Pavilions is a imitate of the source of Bajchisarai, in Crimea, created in 1764 by the artist of Iran, Omer. The tended mosaics of the pavement in 1847-1851 attract the attention and that repeat with some variations the mosaics found in 1780 during the excavations of Roman style of Tito emperor (79-81).

In the Room of the Pavilions there is a wonderful object: the clock "the peacock".
