Love this photo! Even with Nicholas partially obstructing the view of Marie it's still positively darling to see the reactions of her and Tatiana :-)

That's really interesting to see! Especially a video of the place and its surroundings. Thank you! I hope you had a lovely trip : )

Locals still go down there and fill up bottles with the water from the 'grotto' - several did so when I was there. Others seem to use place as a kind of 'lovers lane'. It's a peaceful place .

Great videos.

Thanks - they're okay. Idiosyncratic I call them ! Just something a little different from the usual Romanov tribute videos on youtube . I'll post some more when I get a little time.

It must be fun to walk the sites where the IF once walked.

Wish I could do that, but I'd have to win the lottery first  ;D

In fact I have just been back there in late May , visiting Burg Friedberg again (where NAOTMAA spent seven weeks in 1910) , as well as the RO church at Bad Homburg which they also visited. I have to say Burg Friedburg was unforgettable second time around. I visited on a gorgeous sunny evening and had the entire courtyard to myself for about an hour . No cars , no people , just me wandering alone and seeing ghosts . The Burggarten was the same . It all left a very stark impression and one couldn't help ruminating about the unpredictability of life , history , the passing of time .... Indeed , between my last visit and this one , I had discovered my very distant ancestral connection to NAOTMAA, which gave me added pause for thought when at the Burg.
I did of course take a lot of photos and videos ,in similar vein to the ones I previously posted, and I will eventually get around to posting them .
