I've read conflicting reports about how much of the old palace at Livadia was demolished. Were any of the buildings retained? My visit 13 years ago was all too short--and we were taken around to so many other places as well--but I do remember a wax museum adjacent the main palace, with representations of the Romanovs, Rasputin, etc. Now I would ask about those buildings, as well as many, many other questions . . . at the time it was so overwhelming!!
