Does anyone know about the Greek marble antiquities dug up in the Crimean ruins at Livadia?  Are there any pictures - I searched these webs which have been posted and I cannot see any reference.
Are they still there?
thank you

Does anyone know of any photos from Olga's Ball.? I believe the painting that was on exhibit in the N&A exhibition back in 98 was from the Ball but I have not seen any photos.

The ball you're talking about from that painting was based on a ball at the Assembly Hall of the Nobility, February 1913.

About the photos that the family owned, it's Alix's boudoir at Livadia:

Lisa,
Thank you for your post identifying the photographs around the room. It is so easy to overlook details such as this but you helped bring the room to life.

Here is a map of Livadia that helps to understand the layout of the palace i.e. the old church that was retained on the left to the tower part on the right. Can anyone help in identifying the buildings surrounding the palace?

And an aerial view:

Although this site is in Polish and eventually will be translated into Russian and English, there is easy navigation:

http://www.livadia.jalta.info/pl/index.htm

Of the photographs there is one especially that I was fascinated to find of Baron Frederiks villa at Livadia:

     I wonder if there is an actual website of the palace as a museum, where one might be able to shop in the gift/bookstore?  If there is, I sure can't find it.  Also, I was reading through one of the topics from someone (like me!) desperate to find floor plans, and I came across an old entry from Greg King saying he had some schematics.  He suggested ordering a back copy of Atlantis magazine, which I can't find; he also said to e-mail him, but my computer wouldn't work when I pushed his e-mail button (I am old and severely computer-challenged...) and I don't know his address.  I just bought and read his new book "In the Court of the Last Tsar", which I thoroughly enjoyed and recommend; but I was disappointed that in his section on palace plans, he didn't include Livadia, or the Lower Palace at Alexandria Peterhof.  Anybody have any advice?  Sorry so verbose...

Have you looked here before?  They are typical links to information regarding the palace.

I'm not sure if you have been to these sites yet, but here they are ;)

http://livadia.russian-women.net/

http://www.blacksea-crimea.com/Places/livadia1.html

I am not 100% sure if they have direct links to what you are looking for, but I hope it helps, it might lead you to another link or two.  

Good luck :)
