Full description
Meet your private guide at the steps of the Faberge museum situated on the bank of the Fontanka river. Then, dive into the splendor of the interiors of Shuvalov Palace that is well worth a visit on its own merits. Stroll through 10 splendid rooms which feature a vast collection of items once belonging to the Russian aristocracy and royal family as well as an exhibition of religious icons.

Then, explore one of the world's finest jewelry collections. Pride of place goes, naturally, to 9 Easter Eggs crafted for the last 2 Russian tsars, Alexander III, and Nicolas II. The collection also includes over 4,000 other items of all shapes, sizes, and materials, some created by Fabergé’s contemporaries who were masters in their own right.

The museum also preserves the First Hen Egg, also known as the Jeweled Hen Egg, the first egg that Tsar Alexander III commissioned from Fabergé as a gift for his wife Maria Fyodorovna. After the tour, enjoy the diverse facilities of the museum, like the souvenir shop and museum cafe or take the special Faberge River Cruise.
