Thank you Vladimir.   I find these photographs of 'industrial' architectural history at least as fascinating as rooms filled with sparkling crystal and gleaming gold.

I love these photos Vladimir, for some reason I have always been fascinated with tunnels, no matter what went along thru them.  How I would love to see pictures of the tunnels from the Alexander Palace.
Thanks for posting these, what a huge network of pipes and tunnels were used to service those fabulous fountains.....

Peterhof

The Thailand will spend $6 million to restore the left wing of Peterhof Palace to mark the 110th anniversary of King Chulalongkorn's visit to Russia.
(These 10 rooms and the Palace Church are the last unrestored rooms in the Peterhof Great Palace.)

Yes, you are right. In the Nicholas II`s time these rooms were used as an appartment for the VIP guests.

"Huge and horrible" conference room was created after WWII and used by Peterhof citizen many years.
When I was 10 it was a nice cinema!

Thanks very much for these photos!! It's so sad to see how Gatchina is nowadays, but it is the same vey interesting.

Do you take other pics?
