It brings together representatives of various fields of activity, professions, ages, cities.

The mood is largely composed by the appearance of each of the participants of the event. That is why the ball has a certain dress code.

It creates a unique atmosphere of the past, the era of brilliant balls, fans, boutonnieres of fresh flowers, the secret language of ball gestures. Let’s get back there for one evening.

Gastronomical Program

Charity has always been an integral part of the great balls of imperial Russia. The Treasures of Russia is also reconstructing this important detail of the classic social event. In 2021, the Ball will be held in partnership with two charitable foundations: 100 percent of the funds raised at the auction, all direct donations from guests, and 10 percent of ticket sales will be transferred in their favour.

The Life Line Charitable Foundation was established in 2004 to support children with heart diseases.

The Foundation supports Russian theatre and cinema artists who find themselves in difficult situations, elderly, single and sick.


One of the highlights of the Ball will be an open Charity Auction of unique lots. It will be hosted by the master of the ceremony and the auctioneer Igor Vernik, famous for his skill. 100% of the proceeds from the auction will be sent to the Russian charitable foundations “Life Line” and “The Artist”.
