07.24.2001 12:09

C: Mikhalkov.jpg July, 23 Nikita Mikhalkov has become the first guest of honor of the new Radisson SAS Royal hotel on Nevsky Prospect. Saint-Petersburg has received not only high-level hotel, but reconstructed historic building. There are 164 rooms in the hotel and it more than 30 million dollars were spent for it construction. Before its official opening 7 thousand rooms were reserved.

According to the president of RADISSON SAS ROYAL HOTELS & RESORTS Mr. Kurt Ritter - Saint-Petersburg is an outstanding city and it has been attracting our attention for a long time. The hotel cooperates with the State Russian Museum and it is supported by city administration. RADISSON SAS ROYAL HOTELS & RESORTS includes 107 hotels and 31 are under construction in 38 countries. Nikita Mikhalkov took part in the grand opening.

Nikita Mikhalkov Born to a family of celebrated painters and poets, Muscovite Nikita Mikhalkov is the younger brother of director Andrei Konchalovsky. An actor in theater and films since the age of 16 (including his brother's Dvoryanskoe Gnezdo and Siberiade), Mikhalkov also studied cinema at Moscow's State Film School in the 1960s. He debuted as a director in 1970 with his diploma film A Quiet Day At The End Of The War. An avowed idolator of playwright Anton Chekhov, Mikhalkov adapted Chekhov's very first play Platonov into the autumnal dramatic film an Unfinished Piece For Mechanical Piano (1977). Mikhalkov won several awards for this effort, and would do so again for his subsequent films Oblomov (1980) and the Italian-produced Oci Ciornie (Dark Eyes, 1987). In 1995, a breathless Mikhalkov, in the company of his beaming young daughter, accepted the Best Foreign Picture Oscar for his Burnt By The Sun (1994).
