142K from small Finland.
Well, don`t forget they go to shop-tour to buy the same goods&food but without Finnish duties.

Only 185K from US
I think it is so small because US propaganda.

Hello Everyone!

Tried to translate with Babelfish and didnt make sense at all. Could someone recomend me a better one, or have a translation of the page.

Thanks.

Does anyone have a pre-war photo of the Llama Pavilion?  I am totally unfamiliar with this one.

I do not have a picture (I have lots of pictures from 2006, 2008 before the reconstruction but after the destruction!!). But go to the Time Machine's page on 'Palace Park - Llama House and Elephants from our online book Tsarskoe Selo in 1910' for a picture and a little history.

Vladimir
Do you have any idea why they chose to reconstruct the Llama pavilion rather than the Chinese Theatre or the Arsenal for example? It seems to me that generally tourists would not walk that far!!

I think because it is small (“small” money for the recreation). Second reason: it has never been a museum (they can use the building for the profit, like the Chinese Village). Third reason: probably they found a Sponsor which likes Llames.  : )

The turkish Bath of Tsarskoe Selo has reopened after a precise restoration, a major monument returned to the imperial field!
