Tsesarevich George of Russia Sent His Greetings on the Celebrations in Belgium of the 300th Anniversary of Tsar Peter the Great’s Visit

from H.I.H. the Heir, Tsesarevich, and Grand Duke
George of Russia
(S.A.I. le Grand-Duc Georges de Russie)

I am very pleased to send my heartfelt greetings to all the participants in events marking the 300th anniversary of the visit of my ancestor, Tsar Peter I, to Holland and France in 1717.

During this trip the Russian tsar visited Liège and Spa, which are today part of the Kingdom of Belgium. The hospitality that the people of these cities showed the Russian tsar has forever remained a symbol of the friendship that exists between our peoples. And today, the memory of this visit by Peter I serves to help promote international economic and humanitarian cooperation between Russia, Belgium, the Netherlands, and France.

I wish to extend my thanks to the Foundation of Peter the Great, which took the lead in organizing these important cultural and business events dedicated to this important and symbolic anniversary. I wish all the organizers and participants in these events every success and God’s help.
