The excursion proposed will concentrate on the field of Lieux de Memoires and the Politics of history in public space. Besides the development of the city itself the Austrian-Russian relations since the first official diplomatic mission of Sigismund von Herberstein, the constant exchange of artisanship and art as well as the specific Austrian contribution towards architecture and the rising film-production sector during the inter-war period will be discussed as well.
