The Farm Palace at Peterhof will grace the cover of our 2014 calendar
Each year since 2009, Royal Russia has issued a beautiful calendar. The entire proceeds from the sale of these calendars help offset the costs of maintaining the Royal Russia web site and blog, and assist with translation costs and much more.
Last year, the 2013 calendar sold out before Christmas. As a result, I was also able to donate a portion from the sale of this calendar to the Tsarskoye Selo State Museum Preserve and the Peterhof State Museum Preserve. These donations go towards restoration work and the acquisition of items for the palace-museum collections. I am very proud that I have been given the opportunity to make at least a small contribution to each museum. What an honour to be able to give something back to Russia!
Our 2014 calendar, The Romanov Legacy: The Palaces and Residences of the Russian Imperial Family, will be published this Fall.
More than a dozen palaces and residences will be featured, including the Farm Palace at Peterhof, the Petrovski Palace at Moscow and the lesser known palaces of the Grand Dukes and Grand Duchesses in St. Petersburg and the Crimea. The calendar will feature rare photographs of these Romanov residences, including vintage images of their historical interiors, and information on the history and fate of each.
The Romanov Legacy 2014 Calendar will be available in September 2013, and made available through our online shop.
Please note that no advance orders are being accepted at this time.
