Post by: Svetabel on February 01, 2010, 03:02:53 AM
Sergievka – estate near Peterhof of Grand Duchess Maria Nikolayevna, eldest daughter of Emperor Nicholas I. Later belonged to her descendants the Leuchtenbergs.
The estate and main mansion are quite well-known by their images around Internet.

Svetabel, didn't Maria Nikolaevna and her family also live in the Mariinsky Palace?  Did they live in different places for winter, summer, etc?

Yes,that was a custom to live in different places in summer and winter. Sergievka was a summer residence, Mariinsky a winter one.
