What to Expect
Go to the Imperial Porcelain Factory in St. Petersburg, sometimes referred to by its former name, the Lomonosov Porcelain Factory.

The factory has produced premium class ceramics from the days of Empress Elizabeth, when the company was founded in 1744. Boasting a unique personal style, the cups, saucers and miniatures can easily compete with the oldest European manufactures.

Items from more than 260 years of porcelain production are exhibited in museums and private collections around the world, and often feature as "hot bid" tickets in prestigious auctions. After the end of the Russian monarchy, the factory was renamed the State Porcelain Factory. Now, back in private hands, objects in the priceless museum have been saved to form part of the Hermitage.

In addition to admiring works from the factory’s history, take a class in porcelain painting for a unique opportunity to feel like an artist. Experienced painters will help you paint your very own teacup, which you can keep as a memento!
