The Yussupovs / Re: Palace of the Yusupovs in Moscow

hi to everyone!
i live in moscow but, unfortunately, I'd seen the palace only once, passing it by by car. but a couple of days ago my friends and I decided to look at it one more time an maybe to take a photo of the building. we went there at about 11p.m. we got to the palace and were strolling along the fence. then we saw a plate on it which was telling about the building itself. I was surprised to know that some excursions are held there (at daytime of course). then a watchman appeared and asked us whar we were doing. we were frightened by his words and told him that we were just watching the timetable pf the visits. and then he asked us if we wanted an excursion right then. we were soo excited and went through the gates. theen another man came up and led us into the palace. the normal excursion with 1,30h guide costs 250 rub( about 6,3 euros) each and we payed the same sum. but! the watchman showed us all the rooms, let us sit on the sofas and chairs (the oroginal ones) and let us take photos though it costs extra 100 rubs. of course, his oratorical skills were not high at all, but he managed to tell us some facts about the palace's life.
we were extremely content to visit such a museum at 11pm absolutely by ourselves and to do there almost everything we wanted! :)

and here are some pics from our "night at the museum' :) sorry, if there are too many













here, under the ladder, Felix hid some of the jewelries






venetian mirrors


take a seat!

I noticed that in the "I Killed Rasputin" interview with Irina that he's wearing shades... did Felix go blind near the end of his life? just wondering is all...

oh, I have the same question!
and does anybody know what he exactly died from?

oh thank you for the video, ashanti! it's obvious that it was made with admiration. but, i think, there is nothing new for you there. it is said about excellent beauty of all women of the family, generosity and brilliant manners of Zenaide-jr and amorouosness of Zenaide, her grandmother.

what a massive estate...i would give anything to go there!! is it by a body of water, it looks like it is framing river
has anyone been there? is it as large and beautiful as it looks ? :)

it's just the river Moscow (Moskva?)
it's quite big.  but I can't say that it's so magnificent and charming and amazing..I think there are some estates that are more majestic than this one.

Having Fun! / Re: If you had time-machine in which era would you return?
« on: August 25, 2009, 04:56:53 PM »
1909-1913.

1917. it would have been interesting to look at this chaos and feeling of something irreversible. but I think one day is enough for this.

1920s in Paris.

yes, I agree, that some words can be from different languages. but here everything is in russian and only the RUSSIAN name is in english because the translator is unable to catch it.
anyway, it's just my thought and maybe it's me who's mistaken. :))

Here you go:
Здравствуйте, дядя Bimbo! ...

this text seems to be translated through online translator. because it's TOO clumsy. plus, did russian language have a word "bussiness" at those times? because here it is translated not as "delo" (russian translation as it is) but as "bussiness". moreover, why Rakitnoe is written in english?
and...I've read some other of Felix's letters in russian and they were very grammatical.
