A week ago in Yekaterinburg in the multimedia museum “Russia is my history” a unique exhibition space “Alexander Nevsky. The Fate of Russia”, which aroused great interest among residents and guests of the capital of the Urals. In just seven days, the exhibition was attended by about 10,000 people.
An exceptional feature of the new exhibition is its maximum multimedia content, which allows you to be transported in a second to the 13th century during the time of the Grand Duke. 800 square meters were captured by the latest exhibition technologies, including AR and VR solutions, huge LED screens with maximum picture resolution, immersive touch-sensitive solutions, video installations and holograms. Walking through the halls of the exposition, guests become participants in the Battle of the Neva and the battle on the ice, witness the meeting of the young, but not wise, Alexander with Khan Batu, history comes to life before our eyes.
The immersion in history begins with a hologram of Dmitry Pevtsov, who acquaints visitors with the prince's multifaceted personality as an intelligent strategist in battles and a brilliant diplomat. The ancestral princely nest - the city of Pereslavl-Zalessky - is shown using 3D projections and a 40-meter screen. Along the route, there are virtual zones where you can feel like a vigilante of the Nevsky army and fight a knight of the Teutonic Order with swords or practice archery. A walk along the streets of Veliky Novgorod is accompanied by the sound of a veche bell.
The authors of the exposition paid special attention to two fateful battles in the life of the Grand Duke - the Battle of the Neva and the Battle of the Ice. The famous battle on the Neva is presented by a three-dimensional holographic theater, where guests, together with Alexander, can look into the eyes of a stricken Birger.
The Battle on Lake Peipsi is the culmination point of the exhibition space, where, with the help of three-dimensional screens placed around, the feeling of being completely immersed in the thick of the battle is created. And artificial fog, cold, special surround sound and figures of Russian soldiers only enhance the effect of presence. To create the visual effects of the Battle of the Ice, the Oscar-winning Hollywood studio Territory was invited to take part in the filming of David Fincher's "Munk".
- admired the People's Artist of the Russian Federation Nikita Mikhalkov.
The graphic novel, which is located throughout the exposition, has become an excellent addition to high-tech solutions. It reflects the moments of Nevsky's life not covered by hi-tech solutions. An international team was involved in the creation of the comic strip, and the Ural musicians had several soundtracks stylistically reminiscent of the music of the thirteenth century, but in a modern processing.
The implementation of such a large-scale project, which has no analogues either in the Urals or in Russia, became possible thanks to the initiative of the founders of the St. Catherine Foundation - Andrei Kozitsyn, Igor Altushkin and Andrei Simanovsky.
