Welcome to St.Petersburg
Museum of Russian Vodka
This small museum presents the long history of Russia's national drink, from 12th Century peasants through to 20th Century presidents.
Display cases full of vodka bottles in unusual shapes, old advertising campaigns and some funny dioramas explain the evolution of the Russian firewater.
An excursion is recommended as the exhibits are in Russian only. In the tasting room, there's also a chance to try out three different vodkas and traditional Russian snacks.
If you'd like to sample the exhibits too, take a tasting tour.
There's an excellent restaurant in the same building, and if you eat there, you can get a discount on museum entry.
