Title: Anichkov Palace
Post by: Luke T. on March 08, 2004, 10:02:44 PM
Some wonderful pics of the Anichkov Palace were posted on the GREMB message board.

Wonderful photos!  When I was in Russia in 1991, our tour attended a musical evening event in a structure just adjacent the Anitchkov.  The event was enjoyable, but I would have much rather toured the Anitchkov. The facade, as shown here, was regal and imposing, and of course I thought of it in context with Nicholas and Alexandra's first married days . . . and of their daughters sometimes taking tea with their "Amama" and occasionally attending parties at this maganificent site.

My partner was recently in St. Petersburg for the British Government. He was at receptions in many places but was at the Anichkov. I have some pics from that visit but I am not sure how to post them. I was not able to go, which was very upsetting.

I am working with a really sympathetic guide in Petersburg to get the most out of my five days there this summer. She e-mailed me today that the Anichkov is now open for tours and much is unchanged from Tsarist times...she remembers going to New Year's Day children's parties there when she was a child. Hope she is right about the "unchanged" part...Melissa K.

Amadeo and Reco
Please re size all your photos to be no larger than 5x7 inches, and please limit total file size to 150k when ever possible, and use 72 dpi resolution.  These pictures are simply far too large.
Thanks

At the house, my size computer screen have 17 inches and at work, it has 21 inches. There is nothing abnormal: we are in 2005, isn't this?

Many people use dial up access for the internet. HUGE files can take forever to load.
Also, large photos chew up our server bandwidth making it hard for everyone to use the forum
Please simply abide by my polite and reasonable request, or I shall have no choice but to stop you from posting photos at all.
MANY users have written me privately about your overly large photos being a problem.  If you have an issue about big size for things being important to you, please take it elsewhere.

Thanks

Amedeo & Reco,
It looks like the pictures above have been removed, and I hope you'll repost them as your pictures have been wonderful on this board.
I think what the Forum Administrator doesn't understand is that many of us see pictures on our home computers with no problem and when they are posted they are much larger.  I have found that by previewing any post first, I can get a sense if a picture is going to fit on the board screen without having to scroll across the bottom of my screen.  You want the image to fit in the window without scrolling.  As an example, your Fieldmarshal Hall image is 16"x13" and while one would think this would fit on a 17" monitor, I have to scroll across and down to see parts of it.  What I usually do is download such large posting to look at it in my photo software.
You need to have some kind of photo software, and it makes sense to make a smaller version of the picture you're posting (within the guidelines the Forum Admin listed) and then post it.
I'm assume there is more detail on how to resize pictures in the Admin area.
Most of us barely understand how the pictures work on our computers, and in my case, it is only luck that I can get posting pictures to work at all.
I hope you'll repost the missing pictures and continue your wonderful contributions to the forum.

well, looking at the position of the windows & doors in the fotos of the "study of Alexander III", that room is the room that projects out into the garden on the right side of the palace;  and given his habit of being as out of reach as possible to assassins (look at his choice of rooms in Gatchina as an example....what assassin would think of looking for the tsar of Russia in those tiny rooms?), i would imagine his study would have been on the first floor.   my guess re: MF's (& A III's) apartments, would be series of rooms to the right of central Salons, facing the garden, on both the ground & 1st floors.    since MF & A III shared the same bedroom, but not their personal rooms (ie: dressing rooms, studys, etc and they may have had their own bathrooms), their distribution would, necessarily, be spread-out over both floors.   

but i have no idea which one would be the bedroom!  :)


btw gleb, did you see that i posted the ground floor of the Beloseslky-Belozersky palace (aka: the Sergeievsky palace & the Dmitrievski palace) ?     (i quoted, in the Belosesky-Belozersky palace thread , your post from the Ella's palace thread.)     http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php/topic,1453.45.html

Anichkov is the Red outline - Anichkov Bridge is Blue - the Beloselski-Belozersky palace is Green outline.  The Belo Palace faces both the street and the canal.

Vassili_Vorontsoff, your photos are great.

We had a wonderful tour of the Anichkov palace interiors - it was in Russian and we had to listen to some lectures about the children's rooms and art work (after the revolution it was a children's centre - The Pioneer Palace - but is now called the "Palace for Creative Youth" - the word pioneer has disappeared along with the soviet system) but for the most part it was great. The main staircase is gorgeous. The garden room and the library were outstanding.

On the Nevsky between the Anichkov and the Beloselsky-Belozersky Palace (I have never been able to take a tour - it seems to only be open at concert times) is the Anichkov bridge over the Fontanka, famous for its 4 Klodt's horses at each corner.

I do have an old postcard of the Anichkov Palace painted a deep dark red.

Anichkov is such a beautiful palace!

On a less trivial note, does anyone know where guests would have stayed while at Anichkov? Was there a difference between where, for instance, family might have stayed vs. where more diplomatic visitors would have stayed.

I hope someone does see this and will reply.

In Reco's post with a plan of the 1st floor (British English), there are three room names which I don't understand.

1. Opochival'naya and Mary fedorovny's restroom -- What does the Russian word mean? 

2. Front -- this seems to be a room. What does "Front" mean? Possibly  this is a machine translation but it doesn't make sense in English.

3. TORR DRAWING ROOM -- What does TORR stand for?

Thank you.

FRONT is obviously Antre-Room.
Opochivalnya is a bedroom. Restroom is actually 'Garderobnaya' aka the room where the Empress put her clothes on and off.
TORR in fact is Saloon or Minor Dining-Room - it was used as a drawing room and dining room.
