A spectacular 3D panorama [link below] of Empress Alexandra’s boudoir in the Winter Palace, Saint Petersburg. Can you find the Empress’ monogram АФ among the floral garlands on the walls?

Fascinating 3D Panoramas (click on the post below for the links) of two rarely seen rooms on the 3rd floor of the Winter Palace [Hermitage Museum] in Saint Petersburg

Note the small door in room #393 that led to Their Majesties Own Staircase.

These are the rooms that Queen Victoria's grandsons and granddaughters - Victoria of Battenberg, Ernst of Hesse-Darmstadt and Ducky, Princess Thora - stayed in when visiting St. Petersburg.

Joanna,
Thank for yet another fascinating blog post.
What path would official visitors have taken to get to Nicholas I’s rooms on the third floor?
Using Their Majesties Own Staircase would seem too intimate, no?

Thank you very much G. Michael for your comment. It is very much appreciated to know that others are interested in my research.

The former rooms of Nicholas I have been restored in the last two years including the corridor #398 - 400. There is no access to the private Majesties Own Staircase.

Since they are now restoring the Small Church on the 2nd floor, the Small Church Staircase may be closed. Another way is by the Saltykov Staircase or, after touring the former Ladies-in-Waiting rooms on the 3rd floor, walking down the corridor #359. It all depends on what rooms are closed at the time for continued renovation or changing of exhibitions.

Blocked for a week to share my research with the groups on Facebook due to their crazy algorithms, I used the time and found new sources of archival information and photographs on the Winter Palace!

One is a photograph (link below) with a detail that confirms what I had suspected. A researcher’s dream!
