Josephine:

In the case of Russia, actual surviving castles are extremely rare. Aside from the Kremlin and a few of the great monastaries, there doesn't seem to be an accurate inventory of castles within the whole of the country!

Most structures, pre-1600 (not including most churches/monestaries) were made mostly of wood, a resource widely available throughout Russia. Consequently, they've disappeared with time.

Hi, cuervo!

I fell in love with that monastery fort Nilova. Can you tell me where it's located? If I visit Russia in the future, I'm not going to miss to visit there!
My interest is in old monasteries in Russia. There supposed to be a lot of them in Kiev. Hm.., I just remembered that there were, a looong time ago, royal families in Kiev. Should I start a new topic? Better not, since they are not current enough... :(

i'm looking for photos/images of the Moïka Palace (aka Yusupov Palace/IUsupovskii Dvoretz)...
but NOT the same few that seem to be the only ones on the web. basically, i'm wondering if anyone happens to have visited the palace (or know someone who has) and, most importantly, took photos (or still-shots from a video) of the rooms OTHER than the ones that usually appear whenever the palace is shown on a website (ie: the "usual rooms" include 1) the theater 2) the Rotunda Salon 3) the Moorish Study/Moorish Fountain Room....

for some reason, i was in-love with this building, almost from the first time i saw photos of it. but there seems to be a severe lack interior shots (and exterior ones, for that matter) -- except for a tiny pool of images that i've been seeing for almost 10 years (EXTREMELY frustrating&#33.

i'm hoping to, someday, see photos of the smaller rooms/bedrooms/sitting-rooms/salons/etc. that comprised the private-apartments of the family. i realize i may be out of luck, buti figured "why not ask?"

so, any images, suggestions, URLs, would be very much appreciated.

thanks VERY much!


sincerely--

PS -- HH the prince Feliks Feliksovitch Yusupov, count Sumarokov-Elston was, along with
HIH the grand duke Dmitri Pavlovitch of Russia (and 1 or 2 others), involved in the demise of Rasputin. in fact, the scenario took place in a cellar "drawing-room" of this palace.
Feliks was married to the princess Irina Aleksandrovna, the daughter of Ksenia Aleksandrovna (sister of the tsar Nikolaï II Aleksandrovitch).

thanks again for any help&#33;

the owner of the site is extremely friendly and is an avid photographer in St. Petersburg, specializing in architecture.

You should send him an email...he has alot of pics that are not online.

have a good weekend,

trey :flower:

Yantarnaya Komnata ,cost a lot to the visitors&#33;&#33;For 3 hours,with a quartrette playing Chopen or Rahmaninoff accompanied by snacks of chaviar and local champagne will cost around 300 &#036; for couple unofficially&#33;&#33;&#33;I also wanted the bedroom but they said it was on repair,so we took the cheaper tour thus: in an another patio with a lot of tourists standing in a glass of local wine , only
waching theatrical happening on the huge stairway for only 100 &#036;What a shame&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;

Hi, cuervo,
This monastery still looks amazing to me. Where exactly is Zolotoi Koltso? Is it like a nickname of some area? In the photo shows its main tower is under repair, just like many other monasteries and churches in Russia. I&#39;ll love to visit there when it&#39;s finished .

cuervo,
I found it, ozero Seliger. Such a nice place&#33; I&#39;ll keep it in mind when I go to Russia. When? Not known yet.
So, where is zolotoi koltso, then? Is that where Suzdal and Vladimir are? Have you been to those places? If so, I&#39;d like to hear about it.
