Jewelry from the famous Green Vault Dresden Museum collection are displayed for public in the Moscow Kremlin's Patriarshy Palace
Jewelry from the famous Green Vault Dresden Museum collection are displayed for public in the Moscow Kremlin's Patriarshy Palace. The exhibition is organised under the patronage of Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. It will be convincing evidence of the growth of mutual interest and confidence between people of Russia and Germany and their striving for development of friendly ties in the area of culture, art, education and museums, the Russian president said in his message to the organisers and guests of the exhibition. The Green Vault Museum director said the organisation of the exhibition was an expression of gratitude to Russian people for the saving of the treasures of the Dresden museum in 1945. The art valuables that were returned from Russia in 1958 formed a base for recreation of the world-known collection. The collection will never be brought abroad after it takes its place in the restored Dresden castle next autumn, the director said. The general director of the Moscow Kremlin museums, Yelena Gagarina, noted that the display of the unique jewelry collection was one of the brightest projects to mark the 200th jubilee of the Kremlin museums. The collection belonged to August the Strong, elector of Saxony and king of Poland. He was a friend of Peter the Great. The exhibition is not large -- only 40 things, but each of them is unique. The things were meant to evoke surprise and admiration, as the monarch himself expected. The main exhibit is a 41-carat green diamond. Visitors also pay attention to the exhibited two portraits of the Peter the Great and his son tsarevich Alexei.
