Following the 19411943 Siege of Leningrad

Following the 19411943 Siege of Leningrad, when the palace was damaged, a restoration policy was enacted, which has fully restored the palace.[20] Furthermore, as the Russian Government has become more tolerant, the palace has had the emblems of the Romanovs restored. The gilded and crowned double headed eagles once more adorn the walls, balconies and gates. The Winter Palace is no longer the hub of a great empire, and the Romanovs no longer reside there, but the crowned Russian eagle serves as a reminder of the palace's Imperial history. Today, as part one of the world's most famous museums, the palace attracts an annual 3.5 million visitors.[76]
