Hi Vladimir,

How I would have adored to see this exhibition! Can you write what you know of the project of The Lower Dacha restoration? I had not known that there was a possibility of this.

Many many thanks for sharing so much!

Many many thanks

The restoration of The Lower Dacha has started two years ago, but was stopped some months ago because of the financial problems. In this period The Peterhof Museum found the remains of the all basements and checked it condition, has begun excavatory archeology and has done 60% of the layout of the restoration. The price of the new palace - $20.000.000 ...

Thanks for such news Vladimir. I really couldnīt believe it when i first knew about this from a russian friend. After so many years, it seems to me a dream that one day we could see the red and yellow bricks again amidst the greenery, and the grey tower above.

Now, do you know if the price given is only for the building itself or is it also for the recreation of the interiors?

Many thanks,

Antonio.

As far as I know this is an approximate cost of the building with the interiors and a museum exhibition.

Many thanks Vladimir for this amazing news! Do you have the ISBN number? Are there photographs? Do you know if the Pavlovsk State Museum Reserve are  translating an English edition in the future and/or negotiating foreign rights?

Further to Vladimir's posts, there is an article in Russian on this restoration with one photo of the ruins and another with a rare view of the Lower Dacha c1910:

The museum "Tsarskoe Selo" is planning to start the restoration of the pavilion the Turkish Bath in the Catherine park. The Turkish Bath (http://eng.tzar.ru/catherine_park/landscape/turkish_bath) was built by architect Ippolito Monighetti in 1850-1852. The pavilion was destroyed during WWII.
