The heraldic super exlibris of empress Maria Feodorovna , wife of emperor Paul 1st .
It displays three coats of arms laid on large Russian double-headed eagle: the center one , with a smaller Russian Imperial eagle , is flanked by the coat of arms of the duchy of Wurtemberg-Montbéliard ( Maria Feodorovna's paternal family ) and the coat arms of the duchy of Holstein-Gottorp ( her husband's paternal family ).
The Imperial eagle is holding a ribbon with the cross of St. Catherine Order in its beaks.

I believe that this fact has already been mentioned elsewhere on this Forum, but some claim that the music hall at the station in Pavlovsk (patterned after the pleasure grounds of Vaux Hall, London) gave rise to the generic Russian word for a railway station: Vokzal Вокзал.

I recently came across the same claim. Emperor Nicholas I's brother Mikhail Pavlovich had travelled to England as part of his 'educational' grand tour of Europe. Inheriting Pavlovsk after his mother's death in 1828, I wonder if he originated its use, then becoming popular expression.
