Did you know that only about 50 Fabergé eggs were made, of which only 42 survive? They were beautiful, jewelled creations made by Peter Carl Fabergé from 1885 to 1917, mainly as Easter gifts for the Tsars to give their wives and mothers!

Here's something slightly different - a colouring page with a fun pre-coloured background! Featuring our traditional Russian dancer doing a Cossack dance, it prints best on borderless settings (but you don't have to use them).
St Basil's Cathedral, found in the Red Square in Moscow, is like no other building in Russia or elsewhere! Shaped to mimic the flames of a bonfire, the design and colours are quite extraordinary. Perhaps you have been lucky enough to visit Moscow and see the Cathedral yourself.
