Exposition Russe

In the Belle Epoque, when lands far away were mysterious and exotic, promoters would stage great shows and exhibitions that featured the culture and excitement of these magical lands. Exposition Russe was such an event that featured horses and Cossacks dashing about and doing all things Russian. The Champ de Mars is the large green space between the Eiffel Tower and the Ecole Militaire.
