Exactly what I wanted to see Reco!  You are so very kind.

I was afraid that it would be in much worse condition.  Your pictures show just what I wanted to know about it.  I am really surprised that so much of the marbleized paint is left.....it WAS paint wasn't it? Plaster?

Are visitors allowed inside these days?  Is it on the list to be restored?

Robert Hall says he would like to live in the Marble Palace, but this would be the Palace I would want to live in, if fantasy came to life.

The floorplan was fantastic, I love floorplans!  Now I am oriented and can picture the more famous rooms, my fav being the beaded room.

Thanks so much Reco!
Cheers....
Arleen

It is so interesting to see the Palace from above.....love Google!  Must be the stables on the right?  Anyone know what the other buildings are?

Thanks Reco,
Arleen

Arleen,

On the last image, we can see the Chinese Palace and the small building is the Chinese Kitchen.

On the preceding image, with the right-hand side of the Chinese Palace, it is the Knightshouse Block
( Kavalerskiy housing )
