Well it's the same but i'm not pleased that it's gallery and not museum with things that belonged to the Royal family... Right now there you can see the piano of Tsarina Ioanna and a sewing work made by her...i could toch it... and i set down on the chairs which remained from the 30's when Tsar Boris was still alive.... (which you can see on the photos here)
Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered. No one was there.
