Nikolaevskiy Palace, home of the Nikolaevitchi
« on: November 05, 2004, 06:59:07 AM »
Is there anyone who has photos, informations or more important plans of this Palace. It is the palace of Nikolaj Nikolaevich son of Emperor Nicholas I and now called something like TRUDA DVORIETS (palace of labour)

Thanks so much for your kind words Sunny :)

I would highly recommend this concerts to anyone visiting the city. In fact, they are more the kind of russian folckloric show than a classic concert. The group at the landing stage with the fancy dresses welcome you dancing a lovely minuet while you ascend the staircase. During the "entre´acte" the doors are open to show the adjoining reception room, where the hors deuvres are served and you can help yourself and take glass after glass of champagne.

Everything is perhaps "too turistic", but i enjoyed it all the same and we attended no less than three times each time we were in Petersburg. At the end we could recognize the dancers from the preceding years!

The same could be said about Ella´s palace. The dancers are mostly the same that used to be in 1999, and even one of them, fancifully dressed with a 18th c. livery greeted us. The concerts at Ella´s palace, as well as those in the Nikolay N. palace are the only possible way for tourist to see their interiors.

Here are some of my photos taken during the folklore show, which I would also recommend.
The Palace:

If anyone has plans of the palace available, please post them. I would love to see them.

I don't know about Ella's palace (where is it?), but the Nikolayevsky Palace (former Dvorets Truda) is full of offices, and therefore open to the public during their regular working hours. Among them there are places that any innocent foreign tourist might wish to visit, like a book store and the Eurotour travel agency.

Thanks for these photo, becouse I saw both THE ROMANOVS LEGACY and the book of Prince Michael of Greece, but their photos only show particoulars pf the roooms and not them entirely.

Thanks

I especially liked the 'then & now' photos.

Does anyone know what flag is flying on the roof in the last photo?
