Recently I've bought a rare book of memoirs of Countess Vera Kleinmikhel, daughter of Ekaterina Petrovna, mentioned in my previous post.
The Kleinmikhels were close to the Imperial Family and Vera's recollections are full of mentions of the Romanovs and their relatives. Vera itself was firstly married to Prince Dmitriy Orbeliani, brother of Sophia Orbeliani, one of the favourite ladies-in-waiting of Empress Alexandra Fedorovna.
The reading of Vera's memoirs is really entertaining, also the book contains some rare photos. Unfortunately, there is no any photo of the Kleinmikhel mansion in Koreiz in the book, only the word description of the editors.
The mansion was 2-storied, quite uninteresting in interior but suited for the landscaoe around. Many Royal and Imperial guests had been there, even Queen Nathalie of Serbia. The building didn't survive.
Later I' ll post the plan of the Koreiz mansions and estates.
