  • Very was surprised once on a tour of the Museum and seeing the collection that became a part of the Museum Fund of the Russian Federation. The museum itself is included in the State Register of particularly valuable objects of cultural heritage of the peoples of the Russian Federation. Indeed, being in the walls of the mining University, feel the thrill of particular excitement. How much love, work, knowledge embedded in the exposition. It's not just textbooks for centuries, this country's pride, understanding its power through the exhibits. From findings relating to the birth of the world, to meteorites from the collection of Catherine II. If in the course of their work, you are connected with the minerals here, and only here, you discover the secrets of the stone.

  • A place that is well worth a visit with children, particularly with Beginners learn in high school chemistry. One of the oldest museums in our country, located in a historic building, and at the same time the second largest collection of minerals in Russia. The most extensive showrooms, all clear, interesting, nicely. It is better to go with a guided tour, recorded in advance.

  • Introductory tour in a historic building from the mining University premises for the Museum. History of the Museum begins with the reign of Catherine II. In its Decree in 1773, was founded the Museum of Mining Institute. The Museum building lasted for 5 years. The Museum Exposition occupies 2 800 m/sq. The Museum consists of 3 departments: geology, mineralogy and mining machinery history. Visitors will see a variety of collections of meteorites, minerals, which belong to the 18-19 centuries. The collection also includes fine work of Faberge jewelry made of cast iron, copper and steel. The group includes 20 people. Free tours on Saturday. Highly recommend visiting this Museum, and the people who work in the area of mining or addicted to minerologiej.

Best things to do in St. Petersburg

Where to stay in St. Petersburg

For luxury hotels with a price tag to match, you can't beat the city's historical heart--Palace Square--and Nevsky Prospekt, the main avenue that connects the square to the Neva River. The area around St. Isaac's Cathedral, at the west end of Nevsky Prospekt, also offers a great selection of luxury and mid-range options. If you want to see the other side of the city, consider staying on Vasilyevsky Island, at the mouth of the river. Increased competition means that St. Petersburg now offers a wide range of inexpensive but funky hostels scattered throughout the city.
