Варшава и Санкт-Петербург в церемониальном пространстве друг друга (конец XVIII – первая треть XIX вв.)
The article discusses late 18th – early 19th century attempts to represent Poland at the Russian court as well
as to create visual display of Russian ceremonial space in Poland. The first part is dedicated to the case
of Stanisław August Poniatowski who came to St. Petersburg in 1797 after his abdication and spent the
last year of his life in the Russian capital. His stay is widely considered to be the one of a noble prisoner.
The author argues that Poniatowski’s status at Paul I’s Court was on the contrary truly exceptional. The
article deals with Stanisław August Poniatowski’s royal funeral ceremony which took place in Marble
Palace and the Catholic Church of St. Catherine in St. Petersburg. The second part of the article is the
research on Grand Duke of Russia Constantine Pavlovich and Emperor Nicolas I’s presence in Warsaw.
Polish Coronation of Nicolas I in 1829 gets particular attention. The analysis aims to demonstrate the
Russian Emperor’s failure to create his own representative space in Polish capital.
