A grandiose exhibition Lost Illusions - Paul I. Age and personality opened this week at the Tsaritsyno State Museum-Reserve in Moscow. The exhibition is one of a series hosted by the museum of the public figures whose names were directly related to Tsaritsyno.

The exhibition covers all aspects of the brief reign of Emperor Paul I. The exhibition also looks at Russia's subsequent course of development of Paul I: his reform efforts, domestic and foreign policy, relations with the Order of Malta, the scenes of life of the time, conspiracy and regicide.

Exhibitors include 14 museums in Moscow and St. Petersburg, three state archives and private collectors. The exhibition brings together more than 700 exhibits - unique memorabilia items from the interior of the palace of the emperor's favorite residences - Pavlovsk, Gatchina, Peterhof and St. Michael's (Engineers) Castle, a portrait gallery of his entourage and the Imperial family, paintings and graphics of the era, and rare archival documents, samples of his uniforms, arms and equipment, etc. Many of the exhibits are exhibited for the first time.

The exhibition will be open until February 19, 2012
