ST. PETERSBURG, November 9. /TASS/. The Suvorov Memorial Museum has presented its collection of Russian and foreign weapons made in the late 17th to 19th century period as part of the new Evening at the Museums permanent tourist project launched in St. Petersburg on Wednesday.
The Suvorov Museum offered the tourism industry experts an opportunity to see a special exhibition of the weaponry made in the late 17th to the 19th century period, including the last Chinese emperor Puyi’s sword, a samurai sword from the 17th century, Russian Grand Prince Mikhail Pavlovich’s award sword, cannon balls, canister shells and bullets found in those Swiss regions where the Russian troops led by Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov fought their battles, as well as pieces of honorary weapons of the Russian empire and the Soviet Union.
The Evening at the Museums project stipulates free admission to the St. Petersburg’s museums for the city’s tourist companies staff and journalists,” a source in the Committee for the development of city tourism told TASS.
The project developed by the city tourist and information bureau is aimed at the promotion of museums and assessment of their capacity to woo more tourists.
The Suvorov Memorial Museum was established by the last Russian Emperor Nikolai II in 1904. The emperor presented some Suvorov’s documents to the museum, including courier passports, promotion warrants and title patents, as well as the famous painting ‘March of Suvorov through the Alps” by Vasily Surikov, which was later given to the Russian Museum.
