About Fritz & Peter

 

The Prussian King Frederick II. (locally called 'Fritz') and the Russian Tsar Peter - both known as 'the Great' - have influenced and shaped their countries fundamentally. Their significant influence is felt to this very day.

 

Both characters combined different, seemingly contradictory properties: frequently unscrupulous, against others and themselves, with military ambition in the European power structure – however also equipped with a sense of the fine arts, both independent and without question cosmopolitan in spirit. Frederick collected the world’s architecture and philosophy in his “Brandenburg Sandbox”, Peter traveled Europe and had the best architects of his time build the new capital at the mouth of the Newa. The Prussian King insisted on outlining the designs for his residence, Peter - quite Tsar und Carpenter - even personally lent a hand. We make you follow the traces of those two eminent figures and, en route, discover the tracks of other historical characters.
