Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the history of the Turkish embassy in Russia during 1740–1742. The great ceremonial embassy takes place as a result of the Belgrade peace treaty, which marks the end of the Russian-Turkish war of 1735–1739 and which requires ceremonial embassies between the two empires. The Turkish embassy is led by Emini Mehmed pasha and includes more than 500 participants. The article describes main moments of the diplomatic ceremonial: the interchange of the Russian and the Turkish embassies at the border, the ceremonial public reception and entry in Petersburg, the public and private audiences in the imperial palace. The article contains much information about the maintenance costs, the residences of the embassy and the ambassadorial conflicts.
