Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) will offer passengers the chance to find an Easter Egg fit for a Tsar on a trip to St Petersburg during its upcoming Baltic cruises.
The House of Fabergé, once the St. Petersburg workshop where the Master created many of his most famous Easter Eggs and the Fabergé Museum, located in the Shuvalov Palace, one of the most beautiful palaces in St. Petersburg.
A fitting venue for the world’s largest collection of works by the artist, the Museum’s headline attraction is undoubtedly nine of the famous, priceless, Imperial Fabergé Easter Eggs.
The collection includes both the first and last Imperial Eggs. The Hen Egg was first and is the simplest – a white, enamelled shell with polished gold interior. Inside sits a golden yolk, which in turn contains a golden hen. The Order of St. George Egg, presented by Nicholas II in 1916, was the final one to reach its royal recipient.
Passengers on the cruise lines upcoming Baltic cruises (Columbus from London Tilbury 15 May and Magellan sailing from Newcastle on 25 May) can opt to visit the The House of Fabergé when visiting St Petersburg.
