St Petersburg Yacht Club
« on: August 23, 2005, 05:37:07 AM »
I have read many references to the St. Petersburg Yacht Club in biographies and histories of Imperial Russia.  Many of the Romanovs refused to visit it because it was a place where "radical" ideas were discussed and too much unpleasant gossip was allowed to go on.
Does anyone know where the Yacht Club was located?
And even, more difficult, does anyone have a picture of it, or a link to a site that might?
Any information on it would be appreciated.
