Behind the name Kremlin Armoury is in fact a fabulous Museum of Decorative Arts containing over 4 000 objects from the imperial family's treasures. The eggs made of precious stones and metals by Fabergé, a St Petersburg jeweller, are among the most unusual pieces. Gold plate, silver, imperial dress, thrones, crowns and carriages illustrate the skill of the craftsmen and the luxurious lifestyle of Russia's great rulers.
