The stables were built by Nicolas Benois and are today the Benois Family Museum.

The stables are today a sanatorium.

The Benois Family museum resides at The Maids of Honour Building near The Great Palace.

Belveder isn`t a palace exactly. It`s a big pavilion. Belveder was built in 1853-1856 by A.I. Stakenshneider for Nicholas I (died 1855). Alexander II used Belveder for the assignations with his young love-mate (then second wife) Ekaterina Dolgorukaya (Yur`evskaya). Here she first gave herself to Alexander II on July 1, 1866.  
Belveder was restored after WWII and used as a rest house. New restoration was made in 2000-2003.

I would love to volunteer to help on this project. I don't know if it would be appropriate or not, but I will be in St. Petersburg this summer between 7/27 and 8/1 so if I can be of help in anyway please let me know.

I am also planning on taking flowers to some places. One of the places I would very much like to leave flowers would be at Mr. Kuchumov's gravesite. Could you please let me know which cemetery he is buried in? I just feel I need to do this.

Anatolij Mihajlovich Kuchumov and his wife Anna Mihajlovna Kuchumova are buried in Pavlovsk town cemetry.

Rescue Station is the Forteguard. This was built in 1895 by architect A.I. Semenov. Full name of this building - the Forteguard near the mole (embankment) of sea arbour. (Because on the end of the mole small arbour was bult in 1839 by arcitect A.I. Stakenshneider.)

Joanna,
I don`t agree with the author of this link. He took many good pics (big job!), but sometimes he did mistakes in the history. Private Dacha and Sergievka - two different palace-and-park complexes. I think it will be better if I try to draw a schematic of St. Petersburg suburbs.
Bob - two miles far from St. Petersburg.

Vladimir.

The Private Dacha is the palace of emperor Alexander II. But it is not the Farm Palace. You can`t see it on Amy's map because there is big distance between this palace and the Alexandria park(some km from the right side of Amy's map). During WWII the palace was destroyed, but in 1950s-1960s was reconstructed (with new interiors) and used as a rest house.
There are only two small books about the Private Dacha:
1. Bolsheva K. Peterhof. The palace-museum "The Private Dacha".- M.-L., 1931.
2. Gushchin V.A. The Private Dacha.- SPb., 1997.
There are also some papers.
You can see the Private Dacha and the park here (first 9 pics): http://www.enlight.ru/camera/114/index.html

Vladimir, St. Petersburg.
