Recently I had a tour to Nikolaevskiy Palace. The interiors of the restored rooms are really worthy to see. I was much impressed by the Music Hall and the Staircase. Somewhere in the rooms closed for tourists one can see original parquetry, carved ceilings, marble fire-places, tiled stoves...So sad that most of the rooms are offices of various agencies. F.e. it's almost impossible to see the Mavritan Room as there is a head-office of a tour-agency there >:(

I've read on "Wikipedia", that after Grand Duke Nicholas died, a certain palace was sold to settle his debts. It was the Nikolaevich Palace whitch was sold? And if, to whom?

Yes, there used to be a Palace chapel as you see. Now it is under restoration, I believe.

The interior of the chapel in the palace in 1903. You can see the main entrance and below an entrance to a so-called "cave", built to please GD Nikolay Nikolayevich-elder.

Nicholas Palace was one of several St Petersburg palaces designed by Andreas Stackensneider (1802-65) for the children of Nicholas I of Russia. The palace of Grand Duke Nikolai Nikolaievich of Russia forms part of a sprawling complex incorporating a palatial church, a manege, and several outbuildings separated from Labour Square by a cast-iron fence.
