With all the imperfect explanations of the pronunciation of Tsarskoe Selo around, can we try to establish a valid one in IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet)?

My impression is that it's: ['tsarskaj sjel'o:]

Correct, or should some of the consonants be palatalyzed and shown with a [ʲ] (tiny j) next to it? All in the know, please update this attempt at a phonetic transcription.

Царское Село

Zarskoje Selo (in german, I don't know, if in english too) :-\
And when he shall die, // Take him and cut him out in little starres, // And he will make the Face of heaven so fine, // That all the world will be in Love with night, // And pay no worship to the Garish Sun.

Thanks, but we know what it's called and how it's transliterated, it's the accurate pronunciation we are after in this thread!

Just hear how it's pronounced in this poem by Osip Mandelshtam.

Thanks. To my ear that sounds like ['tsa:rskaə sje'lo:]
