Facts about Russia

Facts about Russia. Part 1.

Facts about Russia. Part 1.

Saint-Petersburg was the capital of the Russian Empire between 1712 and 1918.

Starting from the end of the 15th century Moscow played the leading role in the political, economic and cultural development of Russia, but in 1712 Peter the Great ordered to move the capital to the banks of the Neva. His aim was to built long-term political relations with European countries, to develop trade with ports of western Europe and to establish cultural exchange between Russia and the rest of the world. St-Petersburg, built right on the southern coast of the Gulf of Finland, was destined to become Russia's “window on Europe”.

Facts about Russia. Part 2.

St-Petersburg is the birthplace of Russian porcelain

Porcelain first appeared in China between the 4th and the 6th centuries, in 1710 the first porcelain workshop in Europe was established in Meissen ( Saxony ). The technology involved in the manufacture of chinaware in Meissen was, as in China, a close-locked secret.

Russian chemist Dmitriy Vinogradov discovered the secret of porcelain production in 1746. It was at Vinogradov's pottery shop that first samples of russian-made porcelain appeared. Later on the workshop was expanded and accommodated the Emperial Porcelain Factory.
