Master of Moscow Displayed in History Museum
Vladimir Dolgorukov

History Museum opens the exhibition Master of Moscow for the 200th anniversary since the birthday of the most well-known capital governor general Vladimir Dolgorukov.
      Within a quarter of the century of his reasonable governing a wide range of changes were implemented in the capital, including land reforms, territorial and city reforms, improvement of water supply, opening of the first horse-drawn railway, and numerous cultural and charitable projects.
      The princes merits before Fatherland can be tracked by his awards and presents, which supplement the documentary part of the exposition.
      Electrification of Moscow started under Prince Dolgorukov. The first illuminations took place during the crowning of Alexander the Third. Building of Christ the Savior Cathedral was completed, opening an earlier unknown viewing angle of Moscow. It can be seen in a photo now. With the assistance of Prince Dolgorukov the History Museum was opened.
