Exhibition: Return of a Century. Romanovs. Oldenburg
Topic: Exhibitions


The former palace of the Oldenburg's in Ramon
 
On June 16th a new exhibition, The Return of a Century. Romanovs. Oldenburg, opened in the town of Ramon, situated about 500 km south of Moscow in the Voronezh region. The venue for the exhibition is the former palace of the Oldenburg princes. Built in the late 19th century in the Gothic Revival style, the palace belonged to the Russian branch of the House of Oldenburg. The exhibition is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the visit to Voronezh by Emperor Nicholas II in 1914. 

The exhibition explores the relationship linking the Romanov and Oldenburg families, with a significant part of the exhibition dedicated to the extensive charitable activities of both families. A significant part of the exhibition is devoted to the charitable activities of the Romanovs and the Oldenburgs. Under the patronage of Princess Eugenie of Oldenburg (granddaughter of Nicholas I and niece of Alexander) were many artistic, medical and charitable societies throughout Russia. 
 


Numerous photographs of the Romanovs include Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna and the Oldenburgs include Duke Peter Alexandrovich (center)
 
The exhibition features portraits of the Romanov dynasty and the Oldenburg family (on loan from the Moscow State Historical Museum), as well as paintings, photographs, postcards from museums in Voronezh and Ramon. The exhibition also includes copies of documents and photographs stored in the State Archives of the Russian Federation (Moscow), the Russian State Historical Archive (St. Petersburg) and the State Archive of the Voronezh region. A documentary on the participation of the Romanov and Oldenburg in the cultural life of the province of Voronezh and Russia is also shown to visitors.

Innovative technologies used in the organization of the exhibition - video projection and installation, unusual interior design and unique style solutions in the organization of the exhibition space - all of which help visitors to immerse themselves in a bygone era, demonstate a string of historical events and evaluate the contribution of members of the Romanov and Oldenburg families in the development of Russian statehood, culture and life.

It is interesting to note that Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna (youngest sister of Nicholas II) married Duke Peter Alexandrovich of Oldenburg 0n 9th August 1901. Each year they visited Peter’s mother at Ramon, and eventually purchased their own estate nearby, Olgino. Their marriage was annulled on 16th October 1916.
