      About this St. Petersburg tour

      Snuggled into the heart of St. Petersburg along the beautiful banks of the Fontanka River is the Faberge Museum. Privately owned, the aim of the museum is to preserve Russia’s lost cultural valuables. Feast your eyes on an assortment of bronze, porcelain and silver items inside, with the nine Imperial Easter Eggs dedicated to the Russian Tsars being the most notable in the collection.

      Without the wide-flowing Neva River, St. Petersburg would lack the charm and allure that attracts so many tourists year-round. From watching colossal ships pass by to capturing the ruby red sunsets that illuminate the 46-mile-long stretch of water, the waters flow to the Gulf of Finland all the way from Lake Lagoda.

      Its width is 200 feet in some areas, and the Neva River Cruise is a popular way to appreciate the architectural splendor on its banks, like the Winter Palace and The Hermitage.

      Back in the 18th century, bridges barely existed. In order to access the city’s other highlights, a replication of Peter the Great’s "Venice of the North" was created – a form of ferry transportation to whisk people along several branches of the river.

      Those are Some Valuable Eggs!

      Despite the fact that the Faberge Museum’s roots date back over 200 years, the official opening ceremony commenced on November 19, 2013. President of Renova Group, Viktor Felixovich Vekselberg, acquired the collection from newspaper magnate Malcolm Forbes, including the Coronation egg, Rosebud egg, Cockerel Egg, First Hen Egg and Fifteenth Anniversary egg, to name a few. Initially, they were bought for $100 million, with some of the individual eggs now worth up to $33 million.
