Full description
Greet your private guide in your hotel lobby and get prepared to get your ultimate culture fix. Explore Nevsky Prospect, the soul of St. Petersburg and its main draw, pass by Anichkov Garden and Anichkov Bridge and duck into the sumptuous Shuvalov Palace, neoclassical building founded in the late 18th century and home to prominent Fabergé Museum. You’ll admire the lavishly decorated interiors of one of the most striking palaces in St. Petersburg, once home to the noble Shuvalov and Naryshkin families, and take in the elegance of its rooms. You’ll catch a glimpse of the famous White Column Hall, the largest ballroom in the city and find out why it was such a popular gathering spot for the Russian elite in the times of Alexander I. Learn the personal history of renowned jeweler Peter Carl Fabergé and be wowed by more than 4000 exhibits created by him and the fellow master craftspeople of prerevolutionary Russia. Feast your eyes on nine Imperial eggs made for the last two czars Alexander III and Nicolas II, each of which was decorated with impressive enamel guilloche, gold, diamonds and other precious stones and contained a surprise. But the museum is not just about the priceless Easter eggs. See a wide range of other objects like the dinner services, icon covers, punch bowls, 'objets de fantaisie,' precious haberdashery, accessories and watches each with its own sense of grandeur while your knowledgeable guide provides interesting tales about the royal family. Conclude your fascinating adventure at a nearby café of at the Fontanka River embankment for beautiful water views, Anichkov Palace and Catherine Garden.

I thoroughly enjoyed the visit to the Faberge Museum and nearby sites on Nevsky Prospekt . My guide Alexandra Vladimirova was extremely knowledgeable & explained the history of the Museum and its many art pieces very well. I would definately recommend this tour to other visitors interested in seeing the evolution of Russian history through the exquisite pieces of art, jewellery, sculptures & paintings over the centuries and the European multi-cultural influence on Russia's cultural history.

Veel te hoge prijsvoor een relatief korte excursie!!

Een veel te hoge prijs voor een relatief korte excursie, waarbij we aan het begin ook nog kregen te horen dat er in de prijs geen vervoer zat en dat voor 300 €! Kan echt niet!!
