Princess Nadia: Carl Rossi must have been a wonderful architect to have turned a private citizen's home into a palace. Your descriptions of the area around the Emperor's palace are so vivid, I can almost imagine them in my mind. Count Elagin sounds like he was a caring individual who liked to share his wealth with the 'common people'. Reading about the oarsmen singing Russian songs reminded me of when I went to Venice years ago and was serenaded by happy Italians singing Italian songs. I look forward to any future posts of yours.

Constructed between the 15th and 19th centuries.
Ivan III built a church in 1476; the Assumption Cathedral was commissioned by Ivan the Terrible in 1559; Peter I twice found refuge within the monastery from his enemies; Empress Elizabeth visited annually with her 'secret spouse' Count Alexey Razumovsky; he commissioned a baroque church and she commissioned the 88-metre tall baroque belltower.

The monastery was closed in 1920, looted in 1930 (the Tsar-Bell of 65 tons was destroyed), and returned to the Russian Orthodox Church in 1945. The lavra continued as the seat of the Moscow Patriarchy until 1983, when the patriarch was allowed to settle at the Danilov Monastery in Moscow. The monastery is currently home to over 300 monks.

Thanks for the information!
I visited Sergiyev Possad, which was named Zagorsk at the time, in 1983. I have lots of wonderful memories of this visit. I am surprised to learn that it is not the summer residence anymore.

It is a monastery complex built over a period of centuries and containing many different buildings and churches, just like the Kremlin in Moscow.

Completely agree; after all, they are all so glorious and you can tell the rulers put their all into building them into something so magnificent.

The Kremlin

The small drawing room in the Tsarina's apartment shows the influence of the Neo-Rococo Style. The main features are the combination of light colors (white, gold, and blue) and the original layout of the room around a central pillar.
The central pillar divides the transit area from what is called the Welcoming Corner.

The above link contains photos of the Yusupov Palace Palace on the Moika river. Princess Zinaida Yusupova's portrait perfectly captures her stunning aristocratic beauty.

The Yusupov Palace is a palace of Grandeur.
The ceilings are elegantly fancy.
The furnishings are of the utmost quality.

The Kremlin

The St. George Room was named in honor of the Knights of St. George.
