would not have believed it unless I had seen the pictures of the rooms with the furniture in it.

Have tried googling it but can not find anything, perhaps it is mentioned in http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...263880-3461453

but I have not read it.

Well, my wishes are modest, just the Peterhof (St.Petersburg) and Tsarkoje Selo would do, I guess...

Another image of Catherine Palace, one of my favorite Russian palaces.

Any images of the new palace at Livadia? That's another beauty but I only have old black and white pictures and in not good quality.

Also does anyone know where this is?

I don't think it's anywhere in Tsarskoe Selo.

Well, i have just found some absolutely beautiful pictures of Russian Palaces! So, i thought I would share them with you guys (i mean c'mon why not!) So here we go:
1. Interior view of the Pavlovsky Castle (Masterfile)
2. Front of the Castle of Pushkin (Masterfile)
3. Throne Room of the Peterhof Palace (Masterfile)
4. Another view of throne room in Peterhof Palace (Masterfile)
5. Room inside the Pavlovsky Castle (Masterfile)

Ok so these next ones are from the State Hermitage Museum but isn't the museum in the Cathrine Palace (or whatever its called). So, anyways, I thought I'd put these here too:

6. State Hermitage Museum (Digital Vision by Getty Images)
7. Hermitage Museum main stairway (Masterfile)
8. Another view of the main stairway at the Hermitage Museum (Masterfile)
9. this last image is Untitled but I think it might be in the Museum as well (thats a big might)! (Masterfile)

Yes, the Pushkin one is the Catherine Palace. Pushkin usually refers to Tsarskoe Selo, which includes the 200 room blue Catherine Palace, the 100 room yellow Alexander Palace, and other buildings.

Tsarskoe Selo is not a palace it is a village.
The name "Tsarskoe Selo" means "Village of the Tsar". There you can find the Catherine Palace and the Alexander Palace, I don't know if there are more.
The name of the village was changed into Pushkin, probably because the Soviets didn't like it.

The Hermitage (aka the Winter Palace) is in St Petersburg. Tsarskoe Selo, according to the map (top RH corner), is 24 kms to the south.
Here's another pic, courtesy Corbis.

The Winter Palace, St Petersburg (home of the Hermitage Museum)

The Hermitage, Winter Palace, has over 1000 rooms in it. Is it the largest of the Romanov palaces?

Are we sure it's the LARGEST? I thought there was an Austrian palace larger. (Perhaps Schonbrunn? I'm not so good with the Austrian names)

Counting the number of rooms in a palace is one measure of its size, but that figure may include broom cupboards. The square metreage of the floor area (or how many football fields could fit inside) is probably a better way of going about it, but I don't know if such comparisons are available.

Bragging rights go to Spain

Here's an answer!

http://ask.yahoo.com/20040428.html

What is the biggest palace in Europe?

If by "largest" you mean "most square footage," then the trophy goes to Madrid's Royal Palace, which boasts 2800 rooms in 135,000 square meters (or over 1,450,000 square feet).
