Lecture: The Account of Two Russian Travelers to Kuwait and Ethiopia

A Russian journalist, Sergey Nikolaevich Syromyatnikov (1860-1934) was sent to Kuwait on a secret mission in 1900. Recently his notes, some related to his mission, were found in a private hiding place.

In 1913 the Saint-Petersburg Kunstkamera Museum provided funds and set goals for celebrated poet Nikolay Gumilyov's journeys to Ethiopia. The poet had brought back not only ethnographic and manuscript collections, but also impressions that inspired a number of poetic works, which are today considered treasures of Russian literature.
