Exhibitions to visit

The Many Faces of Russia

Archival photos of the Russian Empire, dating back to the second half of the 19th and early 20th century, from the collection of ROSPHOTO

The photographs capture views of major urban centers of the Russian Empire, as well as the authentic life of the farther regions. Landscape, ethnographic, and portrait images reflect the cultural and social diversity of a multinational country. 

Ticket price: 150 rubles

St. Petersburg in 19th Century Photography

The first photographers of the Northern Capital of Russia, the busy life of the numerous photo studios on Bolshaya Morskaya Street, and early stereophotographs offering stunning urban views

The exhibition “St. Petersburg in 19th Century Photography” brings into the spotlight the works by local photographers: Alfred Lorens, Albert Felisch, and Karl Bulla — the creators of iconic views of Saint Petersburg. Despite many technical difficulties and imperfections of the newly developed art technology, they left behind a legacy of emblematic photographic images of our city. In addition to them, the exhibition includes photographs from the albums held in the collection of ROSPHOTO, including the recently attributed album by the De Jongh brothers, French photographers, whose work in the Northern Capital has been little known to researchers until recently.

The project “St. Petersburg in 19th Century Photography,” dedicated to the 180th anniversary of photography, consists of an exhibition with a multimedia part and a program of lectures. 

Ticket price: 150 rubles
