The best of the past. For all.

ARHEVE is a virtual space that brings together the joy of knowledge, joy of creativity, and joy of immersion in the worlds of the past. In a fascinating and user-friendly way, the most significant media content created by previous generations is preserved in it.

The project is under development and now only a part of the planned functionality is available to users, including an online library, a photobank, and a store of original books (we are also a publisher).

Already works. And free.

No need to search for classical literature on the Internet: the free ARHEVE online library gives you access to tens of thousands of books in many languages, including not only works of art, but also journalism, scientific, and religious works.

The ARHEVE app and online reader interface is simple and convenient: select the desired author from the list, then select one of their works, and you can start reading. The wide range of text settings makes reading in ARHEVE as comfortable as possible.

Support the library

The ARHEVE electronic library does not make money by displaying advertising banners and does not sell e-books, so it needs financial assistance from readers. We will be very grateful to you for any, even the smallest, amount that you are ready to send for the development of the project. Your donation will be used to expand the funds of the library and improve the free mobile application.

A new e-book format. Coming this year.
The book as a thematic collection.

ARHEVE is not only an IT project, but also a book publishing house. Here you can find our illustrated books on the history of computers, video games, cars, toys, product advertising, and other things and phenomena from the 20th century.

We have a special relationship with classic cars. More than 30 books prepared in collaboration with partners on the most iconic cars from Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, Volvo, and other brands speak for themselves.

We photograph artifacts.

Our photo bank sells original photographs of artifacts of the past. Basically, these are photos of household items, personal electronics, games and toys, and packaging of various goods from the 1960s-1990s.

In 2015, we set ourselves the task of photographing all the symbolic things of the second half of the 20th century, and over the years we have photographed thousands of objects in museums and private collections. Some of them are presented in the photobank.

Coming soon

Scan the QR – find out more.

A convenient and easy-to-use electronic museum guide that supports all formats: photos, videos, 3D models, text, and audio.

The software package includes a server part with an administrative panel (for a museum employee to post and edit content) and a specialized website (for displaying and reproducing the content on users’ smartphones).

Each exhibit will now have a label with a QR code. By scanning it with a smartphone camera, the visitor receives comprehensive information about the exhibit in their own language.
