290 years since the birth of the great Russian commander, Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov, will be celebrated on November 24. He went down in Russian and world history as a commander who participated in seven major wars and did not lose any of his 60 battles, Kultura.RF reports.

Suvorov is known as a brilliant strategist and a remarkable tactician, one of the founders of Russian military science. In addition to his military talents, he had the abilities of a mentor. Alexander Suvorov trained many military personnel for the Russian army and developed his own training system for soldiers.

In the army, Suvorov went from a guards soldier to a generalissimo. The main victories of the commander took place during the reign of Catherine the Great, who greatly appreciated him. The empress's son Pavel I, ascending the throne, sent Alexander Suvorov into exile in the Novgorod province for disagreeing with his army reform. Two years later, the emperor asked the commander to take part in the Italian and Swiss campaigns, after which Suvorov died in 1800.

Alexander Suvorov's birthday will be celebrated in the village of Konchanskoye, where he was serving his exile. The museum of the commander will open the doors for visitors, and a prayer service will be held in the temple built at his expense.
