Dinner of Emperors

At the Dinner of Emperors the guests will experience the splendour of the 19th century while enjoying the combined culinary traditions of Russia, Sweden and Finland.

During the early 1800s Europe is engulfed in war and Napoleon has redrawn the borders of the continent. In 1809 the Kingdom of Sweden lost Finland to the Empire of Russia and in 1812 is on the verge of joining Napoleon’s grand coalition. By doing so Sweden could regain the lost eastern half of its kingdom after Napoleon defeats Tzar Alexander I of Russia. Then one of Napoleon’s generals enters the stage: one who was cast into disfavour by the Emperor and will now stir up politics in northern Europe. His name is Jean Baptiste Bernadotte, adopted by the childless King of Sweden as Prince Karl Johan Bernadotte, and thus, the heir apparent to the throne. The Prince has obvious reservations regarding Napoleon and is, at the same time, on cordial terms with Alexander I from before. It is not long before Alexander invites Bernadotte to meet him in Turku to settle the fate of Finland – and Europe. At the Dinner of Emperors the guests will experience the splendour of the 19th century while enjoying the combined culinary traditions of Russia, Sweden and Finland.
