The return of the empress.

An exposition, dedicated to empress Maria Fedorovna, and her charity work, is opening in the State central museum of Russian modern history.
      Alexander IIIs wife was in charge of the Red Cross Russian department, led one of Russian guard regiments, worked as a curator of schools and orphanages.
      Next week two more expositions are greeting visitors. The exhibition Drawing in the emperors family will be presented by Armoury Chamber of the Kremlin.
      The empress lived in Russia more than half a century, she had to leave it after the revolution. Maria Fedorovna was buried in 1928 in Copenhagen in the Danish Royal family vault next to her parents tombs. On September the 26th (it is the 140th anniversary of dannish princess Dagmars arrival to Russia) her relics will be delivered to St. Petersburg.
      In the end of September just before the ceremony of reburying, Russia and Denmark will witness some more art shows and photo-exhibitions and concerts, where both Russian and Danish opera artists will sing.
