The new exposition was prepared by the Peterhof Museum and Reserve as part of the program of educational events dedicated to the 350th anniversary of Peter I birth. It is he who is the central figure of the project.
In four thematic blocks of the exhibition − North, South, West and East − various cultural motifs will be presented, embodied in the parks and interiors of Peterhof. Thus, visitors will see portraits of the tsar and his personal belongings, memorial items from the time of Peter the Great, views of Peterhof palaces and parks, works of art and antiquities. During the creation of the exhibition, archival documents, testimonies of contemporaries, statements and memoirs of Peter I himself were used.
"The title of the exhibition contains lines from "Poems composed in Peterhof on Peter's Day" by M.V. Lomonosov, written in 1759. "Peoples flowed to Peter…" − these words emphasize the magnetic force of attraction of Peter the Great personality, his openness to the global world, and the impulse that he used to set in tasks and works," the press service noted.
The presentation of the exhibition will take place on July 23 at 17.00. It will work until October 31.
Location: Alupka, 18 Palace Highway St.
