This is Tatoi:









I believe Queen Olga used the Peterhof farm design specifically as the basis for Tatoi.

Thank you Gleb for posting these pictures. It is especially interesting for me to see this place knowing that Tatiana and Maria were born there. You mentioned that the book you got these beautiful pictures from is very rare and expensive - would you mind telling us what it the name of this book?

Hi Sarai,

The book is the well known IMPERIAL PALACES IN THE VICINITY OF SAINT PETERSBURG, De Gourcuff Editeur. Now it is less expansive than it was time ago, you can find it at 200 euros.

Thanks for your reply. I see it is still an expensive book. A quick look at Amazon shows used copies currently available for about $80 USD.

gleb
you simply MUST STOP POSTING HUGE PICTURES. I have removed these latest ones. You have been asked to stop. Please do so.  I had many complaints again about these, and they simply were too huge. In the future, I will simply remove them without any further notice.

Thank you.

Scott,
If that's a "stitched" photo--you are even more incredible as a photo editor than you are a photographer!  Whenever I try something like that, I end up with a huge seam down the middle.  
Your pictures have been a joy for all of us!  I envy the time you spent at most of these sites, but am truly grateful for your generosity in taking the time and effort to share them with us!
Thanks again.
Bob G

Scott's recent photograph bears witness to the fact that the exterior restoration, at least, was well advanced.

The Farm Palace was built to the design of Adam Menelaws.   It was a popular summer retreat for visiting family members.   This is where Tatiana and Maria were born, where, during their summer holidays, the imperial children and their cousins had dancing lessons.   It was not unusual for older family members to join in.   It was where Alexandra Feodorovna had meetings with 'Dr Phillipe' in her desperate quest to produce a son and heir for her husband and for Russia.

This must be so distressing for Dr Vadim Zmenov, Director of Peterhof Palaces and Parks - a man devoted to his charge of preserving and restoring the magnificent architectural complex of Peterhof for posterity.

Firefighters extinguish a fire in the Farmer's Palace, a small building located on the sprawling czarist summer estate in Peterhof, outside St. Petersburg, Russia, Thursday, Dec. 22, 2005. The 19th century czarist palace outside St. Petersburg was badly damaged in a fire on Thursday. The building was undergoing restoration and it was not immediately clear what caused the blaze.
