Yury Khnychkin, Robb Report Russia editor-in-chief: «This year Best of the Best Global has celebrated its 30th anniversary. Today it is the most recognizable global project Robb Report, symbolic Hall of fame of world luxury industry. Robb Report Russia, though it cannot boast of that long history, has found its own way of celebrating this milestone birthday: this year's special edition for the first time has presented luxury objects from selected Russian producers.

I can definitely recommend any of the Best of the Best list items – you will never be disappointed».
