Sounds a very reasonable distance for a very interesting walk.

Is it possible to pass the Konstantinovichi Palace on the Lower Road?   I would have thought there would be a considerable security presence.

No, we need to use the Upper Road (highway) and buy a ticket in the ticket office (the crossing of the highway and the east boundary of the Konstantinovsky Park)

The Dancing Hall on the second floor of the Znamenka Palace (and balcony for the musicians)

Oranienbaum

Two companies donated $11 000 000 for the restoration of the interiors of the Riding Hill. Moreover in 2007 the government is going to assign means ($20 000 000) for the restoration of the Chinese Palace and the Menshikov Palace and promised to find a new building for the institute that is located in the Menshikov Palace today.

I hope first restored rooms of the Farm Palace will be opened in the end of the next year.
Interview is a resource to attract more public attention. It is not mean that they really open it in the next year. All will be depend on finance.

I hope it will open soon, I want to see how much Hau's watercolours are reliable.
 I suppose the curators will have to take some furnitures from the Cottage.
