Exhibition "The Romanov’s Dynasty: Their Lives in Books " This year Russia is celebrating a grand jubilee in its history - four hundred years since Mikhail Romanov, the first tsar of the Romanov dynasty, ascended to the throne. The world has changed dramatically since the grand festivities of 300th anniversary held during the reign of Nicholas II, the last Russian tsar. One century later we are still assessing the Romanovs’ legacy and their role in the history.
