Exhibition Marks 20th Anniversary of Romanov's Return to Russia
Topic: Russian Imperial House

The Grand Duke Vladimir Kirillovich, and the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, Alexey II in the presence of the Grand Duchess Leonida Georgievna and Metropolitan Kirill of Smolensk and Kaliningrad (now His Holiness Kirill I) . St. Petersburg, November 6, 1991

This week marks the 20th anniversary of the return of the Russian Imperial House to Russia.

Grand Duke Vladimir Kirillovich and his wife, Grand Duchess Leonida Georgievna visited Russia between 5-11 November, 1991 at the invitiation of Mayor Anatoly Sobchak. The visit coincided with the renaming of the city of Leningrad to its original historic name of St. Petersburg.

An exhibit marking the grand duke's historic 1991 visit to Russia opened today at the Moscow Compatriot House. More than 40 photographs depict the course of the visit, from the moment the Imperial couple arrived at Pulkovo airport, their visit to Peterhof, the Mariinsky Theatre, churches in St. Petersburg, and a meeting with Patriarch Alexey II (1929-2008) and Metropolitan Kirill of Smolensk and Kaliningrad (the present Patriarch Kirill I), who at the time headed the department of external church relations.
