Anastasia's things....
« on: July 27, 2010, 05:22:48 PM »
You are filled with anguish
For the suffering of others
And no one's grief
Has ever passed you by
You are relentless
Only towards yourself
Forever cold and pitiless
But only if you could look upon
Your Own sadness From a distance
Oh, how you would pity yourself
How sadly you would we

First picture is from the Hermitage/Winter Palace.

I'm pretty sure the majority of all those clothing items are kept in storage at the Winter Palace. Feel free to disagree.

I'm pretty sure those dresses in the last photo are at the Kremlin in Moscow. I'd imagine most of the stuff there would be, either at the Kremlin or at the Summer Palace at Tsarsko Selo. The Hermitage is mainly an Art Gallery and isn't centred around the Imperial Family very much.

Keep in mind though, that they change their displays quite a lot. If those pictures are more than a few years old there's no guarantee that they'll still be on display (although something similar probably will be)

Have a great trip! I've been there and I can personally say it's amazing.
And did you get what you wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself beloved on the earth

I went to AP in mid 2009 before the restoration (during the exterior painting and before the state halls opened).

They had none of what you pictured on display.

They had one outfit of each OTMA (I believe it was court dresses when they were very young), they also had a lot of Aleksey's toys and clothes, one doll and a few other trinkets of the girls', and Tatiana's regiment dress.

Probably now they have more considering the Children's Toy Exhibition, though I don't know that that will still be open next summer. Have a fun trip. It's a fantastic experience. Loved it so much I had to do it twice. ;)
