In this unique exhibition Maps: Pathways to Russia, we trace the West’s discovery of Russia through a carefully selected sequence of original maps and atlases, printed in Europe during the 15th – 18th centuries.

    As an icon offers the devout worshipper tangible evidence of the intangible heavenly world, an early map confirms the reality of a far-away land that lies outside the observer's sensory experience. In this unique exhibition Maps: Pathways to Russia, we trace the West’s discovery of Russia through a carefully selected sequence of original maps and atlases, printed in Europe during the 15th – 18th centuries.

    This special selection of 32 maps and artifacts, never before shown to the public, are from the distinguished private collection of Dr. Denis Khotimsky. An enthusiast of cartography since youth, he quite accidentally discovered his first antique map about 10 years ago on eBay, the 1595 "Russia cum confinijs" by Gerhard Mercator.
