An historical exhibit on Emperor Paul I's reign.

Photo by N. Infantiev, Interpress. The exhibit is dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the tragic death of the Russian Emperor Paul I. The exhibit offers a new interpretation of this two-century-old event, looking at the possible reasons behind the conspiracy against the Tsar. Thus, it is an attempt to deconstruct the myth that Emperor Paul's reign was detrimental for Russia. Photo by N. Infantiev, Interpress.
