Has anyone heard about this Object of cultural heritage being demolished?  Cottage NE Sverchkova located in Pushkin at Pavlovsk highway, 30. The house is an object of cultural heritage of regional importance. The building has retained not only its appearance but also the interior.

This is from an article in  http://www.neva24.ru/a/2011/05/01/KGIOP_Dachu_Sverchkova_v_P#commentFrame

Cottage built in 1866, the architect was AH Kolb. In the early twentieth century building was rebuilt. The house belonged to the artist, a professor of Art Academy of Arts Zhukovsky crickets. When the artist died in 1899, his widow sold the house.

Has anyone checked out this site?  I stumbled upon it tonight and watched at video   "Николай II. Круг жизни (часть 5)"  posted by  " franky_boy".  The clip is in Russian, so I couldn't understand it, but the host shows the Alexander Palace and even shows the Semi Circle Hall as it is NOW!!  There is even an old clip of Nicholas and Alexi walking into the family side of the palace, I've never seen that before.  I did try and search the forum for any other rutube posts and didn't find any, but if this is already posted and I missed it, I apologise now.  Tracy
