The Moscow Kremlin Museums participate in the exhibition project dedicated to the 800th birth anniversary of the blessed Prince Alexander Nevsky.
The Great Prince Alexander Yaroslavich, nicknamed Nevsky, was canonized as the wonderworker. He has been venerated throughout the entire history of Russia — churches were built in his honour, monuments were erected to him, and one of the most important Russian orders was named after him. The image of the Great Prince as a ruler who stood at the origins of our statehood has been preserved in the historical memory of the people. This historical and documentary exhibition aims to acquaint the viewer with unique archival documents and museum pieces, telling about Alexander Nevsky's epoch and memorable places associated with him, about the history of the perpetuation of his memory, and his reverence.
