 Check out the last day of the conference the entire day seems to be devoted to the Alexander Palace. Compared to the last one which did not include it at all I think its a tremendous improvement

The words "Alexander Palace" don't appear in the conference program even once...

Tsarskoe Selo

The Tsarskoe Selo museum received a grant for the development of a museum informative system. The system will be used for the new exhibition halls in the Catherine Palace (the Zubov`s Wing and the Special Amber Treasure and the Jewels Treasure that will be open in the basement). The creation of the new tourist tracks in the Catherine Palace has to increase the profit up to 30%.

Catherine`s rooms near the Zubov`s wing:

Peterhof

The fire destroyed a quarter of the Farm Palace. But the main rooms (Alexander`s study, Maria`s rooms and others) don`t have damages. The Peterhof museum didn`t change the plans and the first rooms of the Farm Palace will be open in the next year. The Farm Palace will be the 20th museum that will be open after WWII in the museum complex of Peterhof.

Vladimir,
Thanks so much for the update.  This is more hopeful than the news we've been getting.  I'm glad that they will move forward with the opening.
