Joanna, thank you so much for posting these pictures.  I hadn't seen many of them before.  The curving stairway is arresting, and the photo of Alexis' bedroom heart wrenching.  I liked the stables, too.  Are they still there?

I was there in June 2013. The Palace is very beautiful and the park and gardens are simply fabulous. I keep telling myself that I went there in good time...

Thanks Sanochka. You started my curiosity - what happened to the various buildings. I found that the stables are now a restaurant:

Look at this - the Turkish pavilion:

Can tourists still visit, since the Russian annexation of the Crimea.  I would imagine Russia would welcome the money the tours would bring in.

Wow!  I'm so glad the stables found a use that allows for their preservation.  It's good to see, too, that the Turkish Pavilion has been preserved.  I couldn't tell from the photo angle whether the pavilion still sits atop the rugged base seen in the old black & white photo. 

While looking at the photos, I opened the pics of Livadia Palace with snow covering the grounds.  I was shocked, since it never occurred to me that it snows in the Crimea. 

Again, thank you, Joanna, for posting these intriguing pictures.

Oh dear, while translating Livadia archival materials I was easily sidetracked when finding these incredible photos of the new palace:

Judging from the windows, I'd say it's either Alexandra's drawing room or the Grand Duchesses' sitting room.

Great pictures! 

I've seen many pictures of Alexandra reclining on various couches and chaises lounges, but this is the first I think I've ever seen of her actually laying in her own bed.

Thanks for posting!
