Wandering Camera

Album 222
(Translated by


I have already shown the outside of the General Alecsander Vasylievich Suvorov (1729-1800) Museum in album 104. Let`s see in inside.

It was built on Kirochnaya street, 43 in 1904 by the project of architect A.I.Gogen (with G.D.Grimm) exactly as Suvorov Museum.

It seems that above by the perimeter of the halls cities occupied by the Russian troops are named.

On the stained-glass window - Suvorov itself is represented.

The Museum consists of several halls - the central (in which opposite the entrance the stained-glass window is situated) and several halls to the right and to the left.

The halls are not divided in floors - so the ceilings are very high.

I will not be able to show all the exhibits (numbers nearly 100 thousands) but you will det some impressions.

In the most cases there are quoted tables near the pictures but for example here I have forgotten to photograph it .
There are kernels and keys maybe.

The tobacco-box of Pavel the First (without its edges).

Gold, varnish, glass, 1793-1801.

On the cameo - picture of Pavel the First bu Maria Fyodorovna the empress.

The day of my visit occasionally coincided with the Suvorov`s birthday so the entrance was free :)

The Kunersdorf battle of 1 august 1789.

On the model - the position of troops in 5 p.m. The prussians occupied the Mulberg neight and attack unsuccesfully Russian and Austrian troops on the Big Shpic height. For this attack Fridrich the Second placed his batalions in column but all their attempts to pass the Kungrund ravine were unsuccesful because of the bravery of unicn Russian - Austrian troops. At that time Russian general P.A.Rumyantsev with the Austrian general Laudon had beat off the Prussion cavalry attack and after that the union troops made a counter-offensive.

The model was made by the Historical-military Figures Club members S.N.Kondrashov, A.N. Nugdin, N.G.Rogulin in 1993-1994.
