Many people told me a visit to Tsarskoye Selo is very expensive. I remember looking at the airplane and hotel prices and they were outragous! For me it would be over 3,000 dollars. I wonder how the food and the dinner is? I also want to know how the hotels look!

I hope you will get there some fine day! Mind you, Saint Petersburg is not the cheapest of destinations, but it ought not be out of reach for most
of us. I have been told that the problem is that the demand for hotel rooms in " Piter" is bigger than the supply. Even tourist class hotels
are fairly expensive, at least by European standards!

I'll defiantly have to save my money in a couple of years to visit St.Petersburg.....going to Europe is expensive completely. I looked at the prices at London, Paris and Vienna and they were very high. I think visiting during the winter time is best, because the prices maybe cheaper.

I had posted larger versions of those photos and I don't understand why they came out so small in url form? I had seen those same photos much larger in my photobucket account.

I like the link you provided me there.
I'm just sad it's not inhabited today.

I'm glad the livadia palace is still kept well preserved. But, it's a pity AP is in bad condition, some of the furniture in the AP palace isn't even the original furinture that the Romanovs owned.. At least they're still monthly tours at Livadia! It's a musuem now.

How do you think OTMA's rooms look at the livadia and Alexander palace? It's also such a pity that there aren't any present day photos of OTMA's rooms. I wonder if anyone has any recent photos of OTMA's rooms in one of the Russian palaces?

I even wonder why their rooms are not taken pictures.
I wish we could see photos of the camp beds that followed them to Yekaterinburg. It might have been retrieved by someone else from the Ganina Yama.
As Olga Nikolaevna says "In Alexander palace, we work;in Livadia, we live."

The upstairs rooms in the AP palace were closed. That's OTMA's area. I don't understand why they would close the uptairs area.

Massandra Palace, Yalta, Crimea

In 1881 Prince Vorontsov engaged a team of French architects to design for him a chateau in the Louis XIII style. He died the following year and construction work was suspended until 1889, when the messuage was purchased by Tsar Alexander III. The tsar asked architect Maximilian Messmacher to finish the palace for his own use but he did not live to see it completed in 1900.
During the Soviet years, the palace was used by Joseph Stalin as his dacha.

Massandra Palace
... these photos were taken in April 2009. I posted the photos of both the exterior and interior. Enjoy!

You're welcome! I'm glad that you like the Massandra palace, Chantalc.
I like to post photos for many members to see how beautiful the Russian Palaces are.
