Race Track
« on: July 09, 2005, 06:10:28 PM »
This is the Imperial Pavilion at the Officers' Races in Tsarskoe Selo (August 1896):



Where is this track?  Is it what appears to be an oval race track in the upper right-hand corner of this partial map of Tsarskoe Selo?

Joanna,

Thanks for your help on this.  I will be in Tsarskoe Selo for a few days in September and will try to check out this location.

When does this have been destroyed?During WW2 perhaps?

No plan of rebuilding?
