Cats of Hermitage

Hermitage is one the largest and oldest museum in Europe. It’s located in St. Petersburg. Was founded in 1700s by Russian Queen. With all those years it was growing in size adding more and more nearby historical buildings to its complex. Even the famous Tsar’s Winter Palace – which was stormed during 1917 revolution is now also a part of a Hermitage. It has vast underground complexes beneath it and those are inhabited by numerous cats. Russian blogger Commandante went there and took photos of cat inhabitans.  Cats are fully legal residents of this space. They have medicaments, food and other supplies stored for them by museum workers:

  1. Great posting, love to see the cat’s at the great hermitage museum, fantastic people there that look after all the cat’s. Well done to all.

  2. Russians love cats because they understand the danger from rats and mice. When you visit Moscow,don’t be surprised to see your hotel doorman hold the front door open for what appears to be a stray cat,while smiling and calling it by name. The cat will walk right into the restaurant to look around,and lots of people eating will try to call it over to be petted,but they mostly ignore this because they are headed for the kitchen to be fed and to look around. When the cat wants back outside again,they just open the door and let it leave. These cats don’t belong to anyone but themselves,but you will never see anyone trying to harm them. Or not anyone that doesn’t want to be harmed themselves if they are caught hurting a cat.
