ThomB,

Thanks for sharing these wonderful plans & elevations!  They are really beautifully done.

If I only could read German, I would search the Archive for plans of the New Palace at Peterhof or the Livadia palace which are plans that seem impossible to locate.

Thanks again

BobG

I believe I did once run across material on the Pavlovsk Vauxhall but that was the only other Russian building I recall finding. I did however find excellent plans on both the konigsbau and festbau sections of the Residenz in Munich, which were fun to see.

Now it is a museum.

I found mistake:
http://anno.onb.ac.at/cgi-content/anno-plus?apm=0&aid=abz&datum=18850004&seite=00000065&zoom=2

5 Privatzimmer des Kaisers
6 Privatzimmer der Kaiserin
It is wrong!

Right:
6 Privatzimmer des Kaisers
5 Privatzimmer der Kaiserin

Bedroom (6, a room after oval room) is a small church now, because Emperor Paul I (Catherine II`s son) was murdered in this room in 1801.

Thank-you. I wondered in which room Paul was murdered.

If the labeling of the private apartments was switched, how about the labeling of the state rooms? Does that appear to be correct? (Assuming that the private rooms of the emperor would immediately follow his state rooms.)
