Exhibition: The Romanovs in Russian and Foreign Postcards at Nizhny Novgorod
Topic: Exhibitions

 
The exhibition features more than 500 postcards of members of the Romanov dynasty from the late 19th-early 20th centuries
 
The Archaeological Museum, located on the territory of the Pechersky Ascension Monastery, in the Church Diocese of Nizhny Novgorod is presenting a new exhibition, The Romanovs in Russian and Foreign Postcards. The collection of late 19th and early 20th century postcards are from the collection of the Revival of Cultural Heritage Fund.

The exhibition began with the blessing of Metropolitan of Novgorod and Arzamas, an active member of the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society. The exhibition is a joint project of the Nizhny Novgorod Pechersky Ascension Monastery and the Revival of Cultural Heritage Charity Fund.

The exhibition features more than 500 postcards of members of the House of Romanov, and this collection is constantly updated. The exhibit is dedicated to the 400th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty, and the memory of the Holy Royal Martyrs, and runs from September 26th to November 1st, 2013.

Alexander Panin, Deputy Chairman of the Moscow regional branch of IOPS introduced the exhibition to guests, and spoke about the history of postcards in Russia, about the collection fund, and stressed the role of the Romanov dynasty in the history of the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society, providing details about the Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich, Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna, the family of Emperor Nicholas II, all of whom were honourary members of IOPS.

Archimandrite Tikhon stressed the importance of this new exhibition marking the date of the 400th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty, and also talked about plans for further exhibitions between the Archaeological Museum of Nizhny Novgorod and the Revival of Cultural Heritage Fund in 2013-2014. 

This is the fifth exhibition, which has been held in the Archaeological Museum at Nizhny Novgorod organized between the monastery and the Fund. Two more exhibits are planned by the end of 2013: In the Service of the Fatherland, dedicated to the life and works for the good of Russia of the Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich, an honorary member of the IOPS; and The Holy Royal Children, an exhibition that tells the story of the children of Emperor Nicholas II - the Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia, as well as the Grand Duke and Tsarevich Alexei Nikolaevich.
