Silk Road at the Hermitage 

Back in the 1930s, the Hermitage State Museum received an enormous collection of works of art, from cultural centres along the Silk Road.

Now, for the first time, visitors can enjoy the fascinating artifacts and discover the wonderful cultures that greeted travellers along the Silk Road at the the turn of the 19th century. A new exhibition Caves of a Thousand Buddhas, opens on 9 December, 2008, at the Hermitage State Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia and runs through to 5 April, 2009.

Visitors will see over 300 items, including wall paintings, sculptures, woodcarvings, expedition documents, photos, water-colour and tracing paper copies of ancient paintings, drawings, maps, and an extensive collection of manuscripts.
