Do you know where MF's bedroom was? I think on the ground floor, but I am not sure, I'd like to know your opinion.

well, looking at the position of the windows & doors in the fotos of the "study of Alexander III", that room is the room that projects out into the garden on the right side of the palace;  and given his habit of being as out of reach as possible to assassins (look at his choice of rooms in Gatchina as an example....what assassin would think of looking for the tsar of Russia in those tiny rooms?), i would imagine his study would have been on the first floor.   my guess re: MF's (& A III's) apartments, would be series of rooms to the right of central Salons, facing the garden, on both the ground & 1st floors.    since MF & A III shared the same bedroom, but not their personal rooms (ie: dressing rooms, studys, etc and they may have had their own bathrooms), their distribution would, necessarily, be spread-out over both floors.   

but i have no idea which one would be the bedroom!  :)


btw gleb, did you see that i posted the ground floor of the Beloseslky-Belozersky palace (aka: the Sergeievsky palace & the Dmitrievski palace) ?     (i quoted, in the Belosesky-Belozersky palace thread , your post from the Ella's palace thread.)     http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php/topic,1453.45.html

As much of the pictures of the palaces disappeared, I repost some that I found on the russian net:

The palace before and after the revolution, the chapell vanished:






Chamber of the imperatrice Maria Feodorovna











Salle de concert





The white hall



The library of the palace, one may noticed that the gorgeaous printed glasses have disppeared since the revolution

The desk room of Alexander III






Desk room of Maria Feodorovna, I love the confrontation between prints, olds photographs actuall views...














As for the last sends, I do not to which rooms it corresponds however there are quite interestings!



This old russian style is a bit inappropriate is such a classical palace!



Good day to all,
Vassia

Where exactly in St Petersburg is the palace located?  I've tried searching on Google Map, but unfortunately, most of the returns are in Russian, and can't decipher.  Is it next to the Cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan?

It is on Nevski Prospekt, and the Fontanka canal.
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..
