I want to thank you all for the wonderful detail of the plans, and beautiful pictures of the mosaics, as well the whole of the church you have provided for members of the AP. Each time I look at this church, i well up in tears, fpr it strikes me in every cord of my being. It is such a beautiful church. Words cannot begin to express the feelings it brings to one's heart. How I wish i could see it in person. But it's so nice to be able to view it in it's entirity at all, and I am very appreciative to all the trouble you have each gone through to bring us view(s) and how the work is progressing. Thank you again.

Entrances to the Upper Church of the Feodorovsky Sobor -

No.1   The Great West Door is open on holydays
No.3   The Tsar's Porch is used by the clergy
No.5   General entrance to the Upper Church

Work is continuing apace in both the Upper and Lower Churches.   Currently the Lower Church is closed while murals and fabric are applied to the walls of the refectory etc.   There are plans to open a Guest House which will connect with the Crypt Church.   This will provide a very special shelter to up to four visiting pilgrims.

The Tsar's Study has been restored.

Work is continuing on the iconostasis of the Upper Church.   A new floor has been laid and the walls have been plastered but are not yet decorated.  

There are up to three services every day in the Upper Church.   On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, in excess of 800 Orthodox Christians receive the Holy Sacrament   This forms a small percentage of the total numbers attending.   Orthodox Believers are not required to receive the Sacrament on a weekly or even monthly basis.

Bob's idea to create a website specifically for the Feodorovsky Sobor would be hugely appreciated by Father Markell and his congregation.   One of whom we may discuss later.

Many many thanks Vladimir for all your time and translation work on the Iconostasis. It is a memory to treasure always to have seen the work in progress of the restoration of the Iconostasis and the displayed plan.

Entrance #1 was open last Friday and is another memory to treasure standing there looking to the left at the trees planted by Nicholas II.

The icon “Prophet Samuel” (3) was found. Today we can see it and one more extant icon from the upper row (prophets` row) near the iconostasis at the right wall.

Dear Geglov, it's a touchier for all if us go to narod.ru website! You have, excellent information and nice site, but PLEASE, MOVE TO NORMAL HOSTING!!!
None of the foreign visitors have a patience and time go farther, than 3 pages of your site. You will significantly increase traffic, and visibility!

You can't avoid our past.

Glad to know it is not just me that can't access that site. I have had the same trouble with the Pushkin Chamber of Commerce site. I have NEVER been able to get the pages to load at all, I either get a message telling me to use Explorer or  the page loads about a third then locks up...I gave up on it years ago.

Strange. I have not any problems with this site and I think it is one of the best site of
Tsarskoe Selo, (http://geglov2.narod.ru/Foto/Sentr/Sentr_f.htm)
 the Alexander Palace (http://geglov2.narod.ru/Foto/Aleks_p/Aleks_p_f.htm)
and the Feodorovsky Cathedral (http://geglov2.narod.ru/Foto/Ferm_p/Ferm_p_f_a.htm).
There are a lot of rare WWII photographs. (http://geglov2.narod.ru/Foto/Sentr/leont_02_02.html)
