The Russians cannot live without the French Riviera and the French Riviera would never be what it is without the Russians! This love story starts at the beginning of the 19th century when rich Russians followed the example of the European elites of the time and spent the winter under the magnificent sun of Nice: great writers, painters, members of the family of the Tsar, composers; all these beautiful Russian people will live and build in Nice throughout the 19th century.
However, with the Russian Revolution of 1917, the situation will change very quickly. Our guide-lecturers invite you to discover this little-known, fascinating and tumultuous history.
