Russian Vodka Museum, St. Petersburg

3.4
Explore the history of one of Russia's most famous products at Russian Vodka Museum, home to an extensive collection of bottles, accessories, and types of the well-known spirit. Produced in Eastern Europe and Russia since medieval times, the drink today has become an integral part of national culture. Visit the museum and learn about vodka's influence on rural and urban regions alike, and why it was considered valuable enough to be used as currency. Join a guided tour for more information about vodka's production, use, and origins. Try some of the "little water" for yourself in the museum's tasting room, where after the tour you can sample three varieties of the drink. Keep in mind that information about the displays is in Russian only.

  • The museum's exhibits are all Russian, and you can hire a guide if you need to, but notice that no Chinese guides are available. The person buys the package containing vodka tasting, 500 Toulouse cloth, has three vodka and three Zol snacks to provide.

  • Even such that vodka and not drinking at all! Tour the Museum of Russian vodka compact and absolutely no tedious! Informative. The collected bottles, labels, corks and other paraphernalia rjumochnyh several generations. The completion of the tours is the wine tasting. I do not stand on the spirit of vodka, but pickled cucumbers to their own production, which was served on the snack, appreciated! 5ballov. Next, the program followed lunch. I would not say that the kitchen is struck. All completely normal. The most chic with meals only if it (dish) as that linked to Russian vodka. Yes, here you can feel the quality! Snacks especially! The dumplings really pleased! Manual sculpting. The meat melts in your mouth. Standings! Oh and our waiter, Yuri, uncle, so customer-oriented, found that offer such a geezer like me, not drunken, vodka and comes in rjumochnuju! Hrenovuha. A lot of it does not drink. Therefore, we are more 2-liters were not able to. ..:) at six. Tableware-also drew attention for their quality. Shot in a good sense, ice cream bowls, copper, Soviet times! In General, the feedback is positive. All decently tasty, high-quality, expensive! Recommend

  • The Museum is worth a visit even if like us you not part of a group, but what we most enjoyed it is the restaurant that is contiguous where we fine dinner sprinkled vodka obviously. The rooms are large, clear and very Russian, authentic atmosphere. The service is nice maybe a little pressing if you are unsure decide... excellent typical dishes. Smoked sterlet made me happy a night.

  • No English card inside so if you can't read Russian then you will need the guide. And a live guide is much more better than the audio guide. Highly recommend to add some more money for the tasting!
  • If you don't speak Russian, take a Guide! A lot of good informations about history! Thanks!!!
  • The guide was giving another tour when we arrived so we had a snack in the attached restaurant while waiting. It is a little bit expensive but you get 200 rub off the entry fee if you order in the restaurant so bear that in mind. The tour itself was really interesting, I'd recommend getting the guide with tasting rather than just an audio. You try 3 vodkas at the end with snacks, and you get a really interesting insight into Russian culture. I would recommend visiting this museum.
  • It's a small place but it was fun. It's a shame that turists who dont speak russian can't understand anything without a guide.. Who by the way wasn't cheap. In my opinion if you don't understand russian or you don't have someone to translate for you whats written, then it's not worth it.
  • Nice little museum with interesting info and fun facts about vodka!

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.
