On June 19, the “Pushkin and Moscow” exhibition, organized by the State Museum of A.S. Pushkin from Moscow, opened at the Russian House in Brussels. The event, dedicated to the 225th anniversary of the birth of the great Russian poet Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin, gathered a large number of visitors, including both Belgians interested in Russian culture and compatriots living abroad.

The exhibition features a unique collection that allows guests to delve deeper into the life and work of Pushkin, as well as the cultural atmosphere of Moscow in his time. Vera Bunina, the director of the Russian House in Brussels, noted the importance of such events for strengthening cultural ties between Russia and Belgium. “The ‘Pushkin and Moscow’ exhibition not only celebrates the great poet but also serves as a bridge between our cultures,” emphasized the director of the Russian House. “We are pleased to see so many people here interested in Pushkin’s heritage and Russian culture.”

Evgeny Anatolyevich Bogatyrev, the director of the State Museum of A.S. Pushkin, addressed the attendees: “The exhibition dedicated to Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin, the great Russian poet, has expanded its boundaries and is now presented on all continents of the globe. I am sure that Pushkin, whose heritage is preserved in the Moscow House-Museum of Pushkin, has today ‘arrived’ at the Russian Houses of Science and Culture.

Let Pushkin be read always, let them be interested in our country, our history, our Russian classical literature. And we will help you with this.”

The exhibition will continue its work at the Russian House in Brussels until the end of August, providing everyone with a unique opportunity to touch the history and culture of Russia through the prism of the life and work of one of the greatest poets of world literature.
