Hello Covenant:

Did you ever complete your computer pictures of the AP?  I don't remember seeing them yet.

Hello!

On album 332 there is a picture of a staircase to the princess room. I have been told that the orginal stairway was made from crystal. Does anyone know anything about that or is it just a fairytale?

Hi,
 u know when The Yusupov Palace began to work as a museum people had little fact about its history. The oaken staircase at the pic was made in 1890th, but some staircase to Princess's  bedroom was arranged in the mid-19 century. Many years ago they say, 1st staircase was made of crystal, but after the next refurbusing its crystal piers were used for redesigning of the Ball room. But actually, it's a myth.

Best regards.

The principal staircase was rebuilt in 1860-2 by Monghetti.

Hello
The second floor plan of the palace there he was canned?, In his memoirs of Felix says that this is a floor that is its rooms, those of his brother and his paternal grandmother, and a chapel.

Are there pictures of recent and ancient chapel or did she was dismantling after the revolution?

Just for fun, a video have been realized with great soprano Anna Netrebko with some russian popstar in the Youssoupov palace on the Moika.

Amazing.
