From 24 to 29 October 2023, Belgrade will be hosting the first Hermitage Days in Serbia. The international-scale event has been organized by the State Hermitage, the Serbian Ministry of Culture and the Gazprom Neft Company.
In collaboration with the National Museum of Serbia, the Hermitage will be opening two exhibitions at once: Invisible Art and Porcelain of the Tsars. The inclusive project Invisible Art provides the opportunity to literally make contact with history, to touch ancient frescoes, old carpets and tactile models of other works from the Hermitage collection. The Porcelain of the Tsars display brings together replicas of the palace dining services that were used for grand banquets and family celebrations in the residences of the Russian monarchs with the history of the Romanov dynasty. Both exhibitions in the National Museum will be open to the public from 24 October to 24 November 2023.
On 25 October, Hermitage Director Mikhail Piotrovsky will be giving an open lecture on “Saint Petersburg Bridges of Culture” at Belgrade University.
The Yugoslav Film Archive (Kinoteka) will host the Serbian premiere of the films Empresses and Peter I: The Last Tsar and First Emperor. Visitors of the Hermitage Days can also look forward to master classes, seminars and round-table discussions. Plus, a Russian-Serbian archaeological conference will take place in Belgrade and Novi Sad.
To mark the 100th anniversary of Serbian ballet, which is being celebrated this year, the Saint Petersburg State Academic Ballet Theatre will perform at the National Theatre in Belgrade on 24 and 25 October. On 28 October, the same venue will host a concert by the celebrated Russian baritone Vasily Gerello.
