Fabergé Museum in St. Petersburg was founded to preserve, study, and promote Russia’s cultural heritage as well as to develop the city’s extensive network of museums. The museum hosts the world’s largest collection of works by Carl Fabergé (including nine of the famous Imperial Easter Eggs, regarded not only as the finest jeweled works of art, but also as unique historical artifacts). The museum’s collection also includes decorative and applied works made by the Russian craftsmen of the late 19-th and early 20-th centuries. The museum is located in the Shuvalov Palace on the Fontanka River – one of the most beautiful palaces in St. Petersburg.
