But who REALLY cares?  It is extremely fitting that they are together in death, as in life, both masters and servants.    AP.

I definitely agree with you here.

Do you have more? I'd love to see, if you don't mind. I've never seen any videos showing the Palaces  or the place they're buried

I know I have some of the Winter Palace and I think a very short one of Peterhof. I'll upload some stuff really soon for you. :)
I have a ton of pictures as well, but it would take forever to upload to photobucket. I only have them on my Facebook at the moment. I'll see if I can get the patience, haha.

I really like your videos, Holly, very nice music choice, by the way.
The first one that appears on this video, is it Catherine Palace or Peterhof? I'm not very familiar.  :-[

Glad you liked it!

The first one is the Winter Palace. The next is Catherine.

Great videos, Holly.  It must be so cool to walk were the Romanov's once walked, a hundred or so years ago.

Love those! It must have been a great trip!
There is a clock that never strikes...
There is a cathedral that goes down and a lake that goes up...
There is a little carriage abandoned in the copse...
There is a troupe of little actors in costume...
And when you are hungry or thirsty, there is someone who drives you away.

I found these images while I was poppin' around online today.
These are just for comic relief, because the books they are attached too I hear are awful.

Can't be too awful if Nicholas is kneeing a guy in the mouth.

TunaEars, that site you spoke of a couple of pages back is very old.  I remember other members here talking about how silly it is.

And the animated movie Anastasia is beautiful.  It's going on the legend on if Anastasia had survived, and yes a lot of things were changed for it.  It introduced me to the Romanovs when I was younger and it is still one of my favorite movies.  Besides, they don't say anything bad about the family at all.  They show them all very close and loving like they were in real life.  There was the one scene where Anastasia looks at a picture she made as a child and said something like "Olga said it looked like a pig riding a donkey, made me so mad!" (which any sibling could say!) giggles, and then says she misses them all.  So there is my rant.


Aaanyway, I came here because I didn't know where else to post this, and I didn't know if it had been posted before.  I was shown this site where someone blends modern pictures of Russia together with pictures taken in the same place during WWII.  I thought some of you might like to see them. 

For example there is this one, which I believe is the Peterhof Palace?

The rest are here.
