In 18th and 19th Century Russia, the social life of the aristocracy revolved around a series of high-society balls and all the finery they entailed; elegant postal invitations, gorgeous dresses, jewels and other luxurious symbols of the high-life. At the Tsaritsyno Museum an exhibition has opened titled “The Great Ball”, as part of the 400 year anniversary celebrations of the House of Romanov.
