Icons of Panagia, Mother of Christ, made with excess art, decorated with thousands of pearls and precious stones. Weapons of time, art objects, gifts from ambassadors which played the role of invitation request... More

The armoury is full of amazing artifacts, gifts, jewels,dress, carriages. Get the audio guide if you have children. We spent about 1 hour in here with 3 teeanagers. The amount of stuff is overwhelming. Show the kids the faberge eggs!

One of the greatest collections of gold/silver ornaments/tableware etc. in the world. You need to book in advance and can pay online. Audioguides are included in the ticket price, so make sure to grab one
