Poet of the Silver age - Konstantin Romanov
Permanent exhibition

Grand Duke Konstantin Konstantinovich was an accomplished Russian poet, who wrote under the cryptonym K. R. and was an excellent translator of Goethe, Schiller and Shakespeare’s works. He was the son of Grand Duke Konstantin Nikolaevich and grandson of emperor Nocholas I, and also a senator and a president of the Academy of Sciences. He inherited the Marble Palace in 1888. During his time there the Marble Palace became the centre of cultural life in the capital. Musical evening parties were held in the rooms of the palace. Intellectuals of the capital (Afanasy Fet, Apollon Maikov, Anton Rubinstein, Pyotr Tchaikovsky, etc.) gathered there, read and discussed the best works by foreign and Russian writers, staged performances in which Konstantin Konstantinovich, his wife Grand Duchess Elizabeth Mavrikeyevna and their children took part. The rooms alongside Millionnaya street that belonged to Konstantin Romanov and his wife Elizabeth Mavrikeyevna were designed in the 1880s–1900s. The exhibition opened in the original interiors of the Small Drawing Room, the Cabinet and Music Drawing Room, tells about life and oeuvre of Konstantin Romanov.
