Food, Drink shopping in St Petersburg

Despite the misnomer, this place is not a museum. While you are welcome to come inside to peruse the artistic pieces, it is unlikely you will leave without procuring your very own chocolate chess set or chocolate 'Fabergé' egg. This outlet is in the basement of the Stroganov Palace, but there are others inside Gostiny Dvor and Passage . So rest assured, you'll have no trouble finding that chocolate bust of Vladimir Ilych.
The name is something of a misnomer, as this is a shop and the aim of its displays are to make you salivate and get your cash out. The amazing chocolate designs (including a bust of Lenin in white chocolate) are worth a look, although only employing black doormen (geddit?!) is a typically Russian idea of humour that will misfire with most Westerners.
