ST.PETERSBURG-KALININGRAD-THE CURONIAN SPIT
Every girl has a jewelry box. It doesn’t matter if you have a lot of money or not, we invite you on a tour to the Curonian Spit where you can try your luck and find amber!
Since this tour does not include Moscow, the focus is on museums in St. Petersburg, including also a visit to the amber workshop in Tsarskoye Selo and the sights of Kaliningrad and the Curonian Spit.
The amber workshop in Tsarskoye Selo was responsible for the restoration of the famous amber room. Thanks to the efforts of Russian masters, we can now again admire the restored amber room. As you know, the original was stolen by the German fascists, and there are still many legends about this subject, where the room is now located.
During the trip, you can buy amber products. Because of its low cost, everyone can afford it.
