Thank you very much Sanochka. I love to hear from others that they are interested in the extensive details of the palace.
I am hoping others will do the same for palaces, schlosses, mansions, etc whether in Russia, US, Europe. I want to know the details of places - plans, photos, memoirs, diaries!
If you have any information or questions on the Winter Palace, it will be helpful. One has found a missed # on the floor plan of the 2nd floor and I am ever so grateful for their input.
