Exhibition of Romanov Family archived documents opened in South Africa


The Last Romanovs exhibition was opened in South Africa, according to Rossotrudnichestvo website. The exposition is located in Johannesburg in the Orthodox Cathedral of Sergius of Radonezh.

The exhibition is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the murder of the last Russian Emperor Nicholas 2 with his family. Among the exhibited items are documentary shots from personal archives of the Royal family. The opening ceremony was held at the day of commemoration of the Holy Royal Martyrs. Senior priests, members of the congregation and local population took part in the ceremony.

As the Russkiy Mir Foundation reported earlier, the ceremonies dedicated to this date are held all over Russia and abroad. The central platform is Yekaterinburg where the traditional festival titled Tsar Days is conducted. Its culmination was the Cross Procession starting by the Church on the Spilt Blood in the city center. It was erected at the place where Ipatiev house used to stand. In the early hours of July 17 1918, Nicholas 2, his wife, children and servants were murdered at this place.

Russian language does not have days off. It is not afraid of pandemics. And sometimes it benefits from self-isolation of those who seek to master it. Having worked online for months, Russian language courses around the world are setting to actively accepts students into offline groups. The Russkiy Mir contacted teachers from different countries and found out that the lockdown and experience in e-teaching opened up new opportunities for specialists in Russian philology. Some of them conceived the idea to develop a system of electronic textbooks and globalize the programs; others initiated active engagement of lecturers and guests from all over the world for their online classes, and also mastered advanced training for teachers in virtual environment.
Starting from Peter the Great days, Russian glossary of nautical terms was compiled based on Dutch terms. Furthermore, it experienced a significant impact from English, German and Italian terminology. Events associated with naval glory of Russia can be reconstructed through interpretation of those inherent terms. The Battle of Chesma is one of such events.
