Description
You will be picked up by a professional guide at the lobby of your hotel and taken to the Kremlin.

During this 4-hour tour you will deepen your knowledge of Russian history, whilst exploring the Diamond Fund: a unique collection of Russian jewelers of the 18-20th centuries. The exhibition includes items of gold and platinum, a collection of precious stones such as world famous Orlov and Nadir Shah diamonds and other historical treasuries, Tsars regalia, the crown of the Russian Empire, Russian and foreign medals, huge gold and platinum bars, giant diamonds and numerous pieces of fine jewellery.

The collection was founded by Peter I, who was of the opinion that the most significant precious items should belong to the state, not to the Tsar's family. Originally, the jewels were kept in the Winter Palace and during World War I and were later carried over to the Kremlin. The permanent exhibition in the Kremlin was opened in 1967.
