Yaroslavl has never lacked glory and reasons for commemoration – it is one of the oldest cities in Russia that crossed the millennial threshold; it was the stronghold of mass resistance during the Time of Troubles, as well as the birthplace of Russian theater. And Yaroslavl is the first Russian Christian city on the Volga and the oldest city (of the existing ones) on the main Russian river.
As the Russkiy Mir reported, the famous Uffizi Gallery in Florence will allocate four rooms for Russian icons. The masterpieces by Russian iconographers will be exhibited for the first time in a permanent exhibition and will be included in the main itinerary of one of the oldest museums in Europe. The exposition will include 78 icons that were brought to Italy in the 18th and 19th centuries.
