Does anyone know if there are any drawings/paintings or even photographs of this small fort?  (Or have I missed it elsewhere in the forum?)

Vladimir, are there any pictures taken after World War II of the damage to the palaces in the book?  Anything you could post for us?  I am always curious to see the damage and what they had to deal with to restore these marvelous buildings.

Thank you for sharing with us, we appreciate it!
