Dear Ones Who Have Created and Contributed to Such a Wonderful Thread,

One beautiful October I was at the Catherine Palace. The Palace was closed, but there were still lights shining from some of the rooms inside and a sense of warmth and peace which I had never experienced there before. As I was standing in the late-afternoon cold of the grounds outside, I met a gray cat who seemed quite at home and in charge of the premises. After passing me by, he took up his position on the palace steps. In my travels I have often met such guardians at other places of significance.

Thank you all for your lovely postings and for the sharing of information. Many Blessings, Kay.

Kochubey Palace is very suitable hotel in Pushkin.
the phone of the hotel (Not 5 -star Hotel) : (812)465-39-10, or 465 39 80
Fax No. (812) 465 52 08
Near of Kochubey Palace there is quite good and unexpensive restaurant called "Raut"
I hope that Tel. No. was not changed during 3 years.
As for the Chinese Village , now it is renovated high price living houses.

Do you have photos of Anna's house's backyard  :) Or possibly describe the area and how the house looks from the back?
 


Hi Joanna,

I have emailed you some of these photos, but I am not sure if you got them. Here are the back and side views of AV's house:

And speaking of hotels in Pushkin, there is one more being built right now, it was just around the corner from where I lived this summer. It doesn't look like it will be very big, but I think it will be a nice place to stay. I believe that it will be ready by next summer...

From the illustration, thankfully, this building looks as though it will be sympathetic towards its surroundings.  

Where precisely is it, Helen A?

It is on the corner of Leontevskaya and Magazennaya St, just down the street from the Town of Tsarskoe Selo Museum.

Re: Hotel Ekaterina.  I plan to spend 3 nights at the hotel in September 2006-- after completing a 3 week arts tour of Russia.  I've been told that the cost for a single room for me will be 120.00 USD per night.  The following website will lead you to 4 hotels in Pushkin:
http://all-hotels.ru/index.en.html?kk=fbe77230bd

When you get to the site, enter "Russia", then "St. Petersburg", and finally, "Pushkinsky district".  I hope this helps a little, although details, like cost, aren't given!

All of this is such wonderful news--except for some of the prices, of course  :-[  ;)--and I'm hoping that sometime in the next few years I can check it out personally.

Twelve years ago our tour stayed in St. P.  Which was wonderful, but next time, for my purposes, I would want to stay right in Pushkin. We did spend one day in Pushkin and dined at a pleasant second floor restaurant, paneled in dark wood with roomy, comfortable booths. Most of us had soup and sandwiches and it was all very tasty.

Of course, I was much more focused on visiting Pavlosk and the Catherine Palace than lingering over any meal. Sadly we did not visit the Alexander Palace--it was not open--but I briefly separated from our group and dashed over, looking through the fence and across to the palace itself. While doing so I remember seeing some small boys on bicycles, carrying fishing poles, and feeling rather envious of their leisure time!

Since that visit I have often thought how wonderful it would be to spend two or three days at Pavlosk and have the time to walk about and take it all in gradually, rather than have to meet any particular schedules.

FYI - I spent two nights at the Ekaterina Hotel in the Catherine Palace complex in September if anyone requires any additional info.

The Quarenghi villa has been restored and now opened as the ‘Daniel’ restaurant. The interior flows from room to room with the windows overlooking Srednaia more as an open concept and the library area overlooking the garden.

It would be interesting to know the history/owners/plans of the villa since the watercolor of the exterior facing the street from Quarenghi’s time appears to be altered. I remember seeing a watercolor of the garden area, which I had assumed was from the Quarenghi period, that had the balcony along the rear length and is similar to today’s restoration.
