I have catch the shots of the palace that were contained on the website given before.

It is the very first time I see those pics which are not a piece of art(the quality is "middle road")....Any other would be quite appreciated!

An interesting fact: in the Palace on Sergievskaya str (former Palace of Prince Baryatinskiy) once lived Princess Maria Metscherskaya (1844-1868), first great love of Emperor Alexander III. She married Pavel Demidov.

Oldenburg is in Germany, but the Oldenburg family made their home mostly in Russia.
Prince Peter belonged to a junior line of the German Grand Ducal Oldenburg family...a younger son had gone to Russia to seek fame & fortune by marriage into the Romanov family.

I was wondering if anyone had any further information on the Sergievskaya street mansion gifted by NII to Duke Peter and Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna.

If I remember correctly there was an picture of the mansion in the 'Last Grand Duchess', and it seemed a large multi story mansion.  I have read it had 200 rooms, but have failed to find anything else, except that the Nabokov's (according to google :P) also had a house on this street.

Is it not now owned by the Petersburg Chamber of Commerce?

It is on the same street as the crumbling Neva Hotel, where I have stayed. At the time (2002), it was about the only affordable place in the city centre, so I have fond memories of it, despite its bad reputation. Staying in a run-down mansion near the Summer Garden beats staying in a run-down towerblock on the Viborg side any day!

Yes its down the street from the Nabokov mansion, which is a museam now.

Does anyone have a photograph ? This must be the mansion she lived in with her then current and her future husband Kulikovski ?

Are we thinking of a different house? As far as I know, the Nabokov Museum is on the (Bolshaya) Morskaya.

I think there are actually some pics of the Sergievskaia house elsewhere on the thread (I think I have see some on the forum somewhere anyway), but if anyone can find an email address for the Chamber of Commerce they might be able to help.

I don't think I have ever seen pictures of the inside.  Do they exist?

One of GD Olga's grandchildren is now back in Moscow.  I am sure that he is aware of this place but will send him an email to get his views on it.
