Museum of Bread

Back

The history of bread, through its huge participation in the daily life of people, allows us to take a fresh look at the history of mankind. The Museum of Bread illustrates technologies of bread-making in Russia from the earliest times until today. Find out more about the significance of bread for Russian peasants, and the special part it played in their customs. Then, view a reconstructed Petersburg confectionery shop of the late XIX cent. and marvel at the baker’s art; see a variety of historic baking tools, packaging and examples of delicious pastry. Other exhibits are devoted to the most tragic periods in the city’s history. This section includes a 125 g piece of rustic bread, baked according to “blockade recipes”, that was distributed as a per capita daily ration during the Siege of Leningrad.
