Brian, your pictures are breathtaking.....thank you so much for sharing.

I wonder how it must feel to have ones office in a palace like this!!  Do they realize their good fortune?

They realize it's very prestiguous to have an office in palaces like that. That's sort of feeling as one has a vanity plate.

I may mistaken however the blue walls provides the impression that something is lacking -just as in the amber room in Tsarskoye-...

Does someone knows if precious panels may have been taken from the room after the revolution or if it is almost normal?

Thanks in advance
Vassili

Does anyone know if the BRIGHT royal blue color on the walls is the original color?  It seems so loud.  But maybe because the panels are "naked" it stands out so much.  There must have been glorious paintings on every panel....or mirrors, etc.

In looking at Brians wonderful pictures I just noticed that light fixture with the cork-screw neon longivity bulbs in it, looks so awful it gave me a good chuckle.  Nice and economic of them tho......

The Yusupov palace on the Liteiny prospect was built in 1852. Princess Zinaida and her daughter in law Princess Irina turned it into a hospital during the 1st World War. It is used by the former Communist party today. It is one of 7 palaces owned by the family in St Petersburg. ( They owner 43 palaces across Russia at the time of the Revolution.)

The palace contains one of the most beautiful interiors in St Petersburg, and is wonderfully maintained. On the half landing the original owner ( Felix's Grandmother) also named Zinaida, had mirrors built into the walls, which gave her the opportunity to dissapear if the guest coming up the staircase was not welcome. It contains a very beautiful " Blue Room", which is considered one of the best surviving, preserved examples of Rococo design in Russia.

The Palace on Liteyniy prospekt (Saint-Petersburg) of Princess Zenaida Ivanovna Yusupova (grandmother of Princess Zenaida Nikolayevna).




Red Sitting room


The picture over the mantlepeice looks very much like the portrait of Zenaida Ivanova  reproduced in Lost Splendour.

The part of the portrait. Now it's in the Moika Palace
