PREMIUM SPOTLIGHT ON LAVISH TV SERIES 'THE GOLDEN HORDE' SET IN 13TH CENTURY RUSSIA! FIRST PHOTOS AND TRAILER

 'THE GOLDEN HORDE'
NEW TV SERIES FROM RUSSIA
Yustina, the bliss of Russian beauty
After airing their lavish television series on Sofia Paleologa last winter, Russian national broadcaster is now producing another massive mediaeval small screen project, this time on the inglorious THE GOLDEN HORDE directed by Timur Alpatov. This sixteen episode 13th century set historical saga should start airing in motherland Russia sometime later this year, I'm guessing Autumn or Winter and as you can see from the first photos from the sets it will be a parade of rich, pearl and jewel encrusted headpieces and beautiful Russian sarafans
Grand Prince Yaroslav on the throne
and costumes! The cast is lead by gorgeous Yulia Peresild, Aleksandr Ustyugov and Sergei Puskepalis! The series, that took two and a half years to be written, is described as a mix of Game of Thrones and Magnificent Century!

  1. Those headpieces truly are magnificent. I am not much of a hat wearer, but give me one of those and I'll walk around wearing it like I'm queen of the world!

    1. you'd be awfully hot, though, back in those days the weather wasn't this scorching as it is today, so they were more able to wear all those veils and scarves around their heads even during summer.

  3. It looks like a lot of work went into the sets and costumes. The trailer was all in Russian. At least on my computer it was.
