Place of Solitude  The name of the Hermitage Museum, in St. Petersburg, Russia, came from the French and it means the "place of solitude." This was true when it was the Tsar's private museum, but now it is filled with millions of visitors a year. There are some quiet, elegant corners in the museum, but you really have to seek them out.
