Entering St Petersburg, you’ll be awestruck by the city's palaces, cathedrals and elegant canals. Visual treats on a smaller scale await at the beautiful Shuvalov Palace, which houses the world's largest collection of works by Russian jeweller Peter Carl Fabergé, including nine of the famous Imperial Easter Eggs. These were personal gifts created for the Romanovs. Tsar Nicholas II gave two each year – one to his mother, the other to his wife, the Empress Alexandra. This is an incredible opportunity to get up close to some of the world's rarest objet d’arts. Just 42 of the 50 eggs have survived.
