Why No New Alexander Palace Pictures?
« on: April 22, 2013, 04:58:28 PM »
It's been so long since anybody posted new pictures taken during trips to the Alexander Palace that I'm becoming anxious.  I can't find new pictures here or anywhere else.  Has nobody visited the palace recently?  Is the palace closed?

Someone posted these on Tumblr a couple of months back. From Feb 2013. The Palace looks in wonderful shape judging by these photos!

They certainly are neat pictures, especially the one of Alexandra's formal reception room.  The lighting and angle are such that I can virtually feel the nap of the carpet.  Alas, these are pictures that have become all too familiar.  I miss seeing new strings of pictures posted here by members just returned from a visit to the palace.  This limbo is killing me.

I most certainly agree with you! The Mauve Room looks lovely too. I do miss seeing the new string of pictures posted on here too.

I came from Pushkin. The whole day was in the palace.
  Lots of photos. There is a photo of the Heir stairs, a large library, a hall with a slide. Show?

Stairs to the second floor in the room Alexis. The ladder came to the reception. She is real. During the war, was not destroyed. On the ladder was the Imperial Family.

Wonderful, Lilianna! You mentioned a hall with a slide. Do you mean the Mountain Hall? Did they put a slide back into it?

No. This is a photo of a large library. In the photo you can see the subject of the Church of Grand Palace.
I was told at the palace, which will restore the hill!

Room number 3 on the plan of the palace. I'm in a red sweater. Around me Galina Semenova, who works in the palace and she spent a very interesting tour.





Living room of the Empress.

                  Oft mentioned on this forum, it is a tapestry (not a painting) of the French queen Marie Antionette and her children, presented to the Empress by the President of France. It is, of course, a copy of the original Le Brun painting.     AP.
