The exhibition “Meeting the Russian Tsar. Novels – Imperial Service” opened in the Gallery of the Cultural Center on Zlatibor

In the pleasant ambience of the Gallery of the Cultural Center Zlatibor, on Thursday, October 7, 2021, starting at 7 pm, the exhibition “Meeting the Russian Tsar” was ceremoniously opened. Novels – Imperial Service “dedicated to the last Russian Emperor Nicholas II and his family.

At the opening of the exhibition, Father Ignatije Shestakov, a hieromonk from the Sretenje Monastery in Moscow, addressed the visitors. The project was created with the desire and goal to bring the character and work of the members of the last dynasty closer to the Serbian audience. At the same time, the organizers made an effort to choose the photo material based on the desire to, above all, show the beauty of the Romanov family, their everyday life and service for the benefit of the Fatherland and their people. The exhibition consists of black and white photographs from the historical archives and personal albums of the Romanov family. From the old photographs in front of the viewer, the performance of true beauty and love, nobility and holiness comes to life.

It was the martyr Tsar Nikolaj and his family who enjoyed a special love among the Serbian people. Awakening of the memory of the tsar’s martyrs is especially important in 2018, when the 100th anniversary of the martyrdom of the last Russian emperor and his family is being marked, who are counted as saints in the Russian and Serbian Churches. When Austria-Hungary issued an ultimatum to Serbia on July 23, 1914, the Serbian government turned to Russia for help that evening. Only six days after that, on July 30, Tsar Nicholas II responded positively to the request of the Serbian government. The Austro-Hungarian army had already attacked Serbia at that time. Russia, as the protector of Serbia, entered the war unprepared against Austria-Hungary, which was joined by Germany. That was the beginning of the great suffering of the Orthodox countries and the martyrs
the demise of the Romanov royal family. In addition, Russia helped Serbia a lot during the First World War.

The project is being realized by the Sretenje Monastery from Moscow, the Pravoslavie.ru portal, in cooperation with the “Russian Tsar” studio.

The first photo exhibition opened in August 2016. During the first year of the project, the exhibition visited more than fifty places throughout Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina. It represents only the beginning and one segment of the project that renews the memory of Tsar Nicholas II and his family.

The exhibition will be set up until October 21, 2021, and interested visitors can see the exhibition every working day, from 10 am to 5 pm.
