    Stop At: The State Hermitage Museum, Palace Emb., 30-38, St. Petersburg 191055 Russia

    The Diamond Room is the biggest collection of the Russian Emperor's finest jewelry. St. Petersburg used to be the capital of the Russian Empire and the Romanovs (the Russian Emperor's dynasty) were the richest family in the world at the beginning of the 20th century, and as a result this collection is really worth seeing.

    Access to the Diamond Room is usually by pre-arranged appointment only, with no exceptions, plus the regular tour usually lasts for 30 minutes and you would have to be part of a large group, so this private, longer tour is not to be missed.

    Your private tour of the Diamond Room will start with the private transfer and take place with a Hermitage Museum curator. All of the curators at the museum have a Ph.D. in art history and are real connoisseurs of art. They are also extremely enthusiastic about their collection. You will have 1 hour, 15 minutes to look at these unique jewelry masterpieces. The curator will share details with you that you won't find in the guidebooks.

    After your extraordinary Diamond Room tour, you will have the opportunity to see the other exhibitions at one of the best museums in the world: The State Hermitage Museum. The Hermitage in St. Petersburg, is the biggest museum in the World (together with the Louvre in Paris, they are in competition for the World's "No 1" in terms of exhibition space, number of items and collections etc). The buildings that the Hermitage occupies are brilliant examples of European architecture. The walls of these buildings have also seen a great number of important historical events - from Peter the Great to Nicolay II. Every visitor can feel the force of Russian history here. Its collections, of which only a small part is on permanent display, comprise over three million items, including the largest collection of paintings in the world. The collections occupy a large complex of six historic buildings along Palace Embankment, including the Winter Palace, a former residence of Russian emperors.

    Your tour includes an all-day entrance ticket, so you can stay at this marvelous museum as long as you wish afterwards (closing time is 6pm; and on Wednesdays it is 9pm).

    There is a cafe inside the museum, where you can take a break for lunch if you wish (own expense).
