Great photos Al Bina, many thanks. So many of them I believe were taken in the Crimea.

Haikko is a gracious house in the Finnish country-side where the Tsar and his family used to holiday.

Many decades ago it came on the market, and a lady who had won the lottery brought it for herself and turned it into a wonderful hotel. Imagine sleeping in the same room as a Tsarina or one of the Archduchesses.

(She sounds like a lot of fun. Her white Rolls Royce is parked out the front, and she used to let her guests borrow it to drive to the shops if they needed to get something. How generous.)

I only went for afternoon tea, but it was poignent to see the photos on the walls of the Tsar, and his family's times there - and to hear they were offered this place as a refuge, but declined.

Although not opulent or grand, it is lovely and tranquil, set on a slope that at the rear rolls down and down and down a massive lawn to the water.

There is a wooded area to the side, with paths to stroll along.

The back also has a very large terrace, and catches the sun.

The whole place is just gracious and lovely.

Here are some of my photos.

The above link contains information about Russian couturiere Nadezhda Petrovna Lamanova, who had Empress Alexadra Fedorovna and Princess Zinaida Yusupova among her clients. The blogger mode_tagebuch provided excellent photos and closeup of Lamanova's creations. The dresses 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 in the II section belonged to Empress Alexandra Fedorovna.

May they rest in peace and I hope that the other bodies will be buried with the other members in the cathedral.
It was a tragedy . poor tsarevitch! who was ill during all his life and cannot be buried as his sister Maria.

There is no harm in wanting. Hopefully the descendants in question are aware of big costs of renaming.

The majority of the people - 67 percent - said that Russia should leave the monarchy in the past and remain a democracy.
I'm sorry if I go off topic here, but does the writer of that article not know about a thing called "constitutional monarchy"?

The remains of Tsar Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra Fyodorovna have been authenticated by genetic analysis, the Investigative Committee's website reported Wednesday.

DNA samples taken from the bones of Nicholas II have matched with samples taken a blood-stained shirt of Russia’s last tsar.

Comments under the article are frightfully vacuous.

Why did the English monarch not send help to Nicholas? His wife was of English blood and royalty. Why weren't they put into exile in Englan?
