Fabergé museum

I will show you one of the world`s finest collections on display in the restored Shuvalov Palace, just couple of minutes walk from Nevsky prospect. In 2004 Christopher Forbes, the son of Malcolm Forbes, sold unique Faberge collection to Russian billionaire Victor Vekselberg for $100 million and in 2013 he opened a Fabergé museum in the historical center of St. Petersburg. Pride of place goes to nine Easter eggs, crafted for the last two Russian tsars – Alexander III and Nicolas II. The collection includes over than 4000 other items, created by Faberge and his contemporaries.
