New video Tsarskoie Selo, Alexander Palace etc
« on: October 12, 2018, 12:14:48 PM »
Hello!

This is the first time I post here, even though I have been a member for a while.
I just want to share a video I have made of my travel to Tsarskoie Selo in late August.
It is rather long, but I would say it shows rather much from the AP and its surroundings.
This is the first time ever I do a video, but I think it turned out rather nice.
If you like it, please feel free to repost the link for it on other places were its contents might be of interest.
Feel free to ask/comment.

Kind regards, P.v. Holdinghausen

That was wonderful, amazing. Thanks for doing that. Walking in the footsteps, so moving, so lonesome. And the oak trees. Best not to say but I hope you scored an acorn. Or four. You can feel the solemness still though all that time and space. No wonder they named them saints. See what you mean by that menacing fence; the Ipatiev mindset persists, but hey, they're working there, so that's great. Again thanks.

Thank you very much!
Darn I never thought about grabbing a few acorns :( That would have been a wonderful idea.
I will go there again for sure though. I absolutely must see both the AP and the Feodorovsky Gorodok
when they are finished renovating.
   I must say I felt both sad and happy during my short stay... Very moving to be there.
Next time I will stay only in TS. There is very much to see. I might go in the winter and build a snow tower in the park ;)

Kind regards PvH

Thank you very much PvH. I am in awe of your video. It is marvelous to follow from Anna Vyrubova's house to Dvortsovaya that is so familiar to me. And it was lovely to see the interior of the Church of the Sign, my favorite.

Thank you very much Joanna :)

The video might be a bit long, but I wanted to do it mainly for people who have never been there, and for
people who might never get the opportunity to get there. Hence it also shows some of the surroundings,
and also, I have tried to show how the different places are situated geographically. ie: how close they are
to each other, and that TS is very small.
   The two churches are both wonderful, though rather different to each other in most ways.
I did ofc light a candle also in the Feodorovsky Sobor :)
   Have you been there many times? Maybe you live in Russia?
I will go back for sure, when the AP and the Feodorovsky Gorodok is finished and open again.

Kind regards, P.v.H

Please mind my english, it is not my native.
