Janna Tolstikova added that the Museum of the Special Purpose Garage of the Federal Guard Service of Russia has been visited by delegations from Brazil and China more than once. The head of the TV BRICS network mentioned that foreign colleagues noted the high level of organisation of the exhibitions.
Yulia Kuklina, CEO of the Museum of the Special Purpose Garage of the Federal Guard Service of Russia, said that the museum features more than 50 pieces of equipment. Among them there are practically all cars, which were used by the first persons of the state beginning from the epoch of Czar Nicholas II.
"It is remarkable, that due to our cooperation a lot of people all over the world learn a little bit more about the history of Russia, about the leaders of the country and vehicles they used to drive. <...> The cars you can see in our exposition are quite rare. For example, Delaunay-Belleville and Mercedes", said Yulia Kuklina.
"Witnesses of the Era. His Majesty's Garage" is a film-story about how technical innovations influenced the life of the imperial family and the history of the country. At the heart of the film is a Mercedes 45PS, the car of Nicholas II. In addition, viewers will learn how the rules of the road were created in the country and why Mercedes cars were the first ones to drive on palace bridges, but then they were forgotten about for over 100 years.
A film about the history of His Imperial Majesty's Own Garage is scheduled to be shown on TV channels in the five countries.
