Palace of Grand Duke Vladimir
« on: May 16, 2005, 09:35:54 AM »
This is the only picture I can find of Grand Duke Vladimir's Palace which was built for him by Rezanov in 1867. Would anybody please have any pictures of the interiors? Or a better view of it?
The building (now the Petersburg House of Scientists) is supposed to be magnificent but I don't think it looks very magnificent here.  :-/

The mother of a close friend of mine was the Director of the Vladimir Palace (House of Scientists) in the early 1990s and I was able to many times get entry into the palace, which is magnificent. I know that I have pictures of the interiors somewhere, just need to locate them.

Is this Palace in the Millionaires Street, very close to the Winter Palace?

The front of the palace is on the Palace Quay, 26 on the Neva.
The rear of the palace with its service wing is on Millionaires Street.

Thank you Bob for your explanation. I was in St. Petersburg last summer, and i remember very well the palace, i didnīt know then that it was Gran Duke Vladimirīs , but i spent a few minutes observing the built, it attract my attention because you can see very well how the coats of arms had been arrached from the front of the palace.

Does any photos exist of the Grand Duchess Marie Pavlovna's Moorish boudoir? I read about it in "Flight of the Romanovs" and it seems like a very interesting room with the writings from the Quran decorating one of the wall I believe.

Thanks!

This is only one of the Romanov's palaces which looks like before revolution inside.
So it is truly unique.
Everybody could arrange an excursion there.
During summer, some concerts for tourists take place there too.
It is famouse place also for the wedding ceremonies.

I have to compliment all the persons on this forum, this place, Alexander Palace Time Machine, is an architectural fan's dream come true.  :)

Thanks for posting such an array of great pictures of buildings we hardly see in art books!  Withouth your scans or the equally interesting messages of the Forum members who live or travel in that area we wouldn't know about any of these locations.

Joanna,

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Thank you # 1 for finding this wonderful treasure trove of photos of Imperial Russia!
Thank you # 2 for taking the trouble to post all the links in all the threads to make it easier for us to find these wonderful photos.
Thank you # 3 for your continued sharing of websites that you have diligently sought and discovered.  You continue to generously share your discoveries with us and are a fabulous contributor to this board.

My only complaint: we have never gotten a photo web site where we can view your pictures of your recent trip to Russia.  I had hoped you might be able to post them on a blog, webpage, Photobucket etc., because I know you got to places that most of us wouldn't even know how to find.  (Maybe you've posted a link to them somewhere and I missed it, but I for one, would love you to share them with us!)

Again, keep contributing and know how much we all appreciate it!

BobG

I think that the real pearl of the palace is the library.
Because you could use it and from this moment you start to fell yourself not like tourist who came to see the palace.
