Hi friends

Do we know if also the childrens rooms on the upper floor ist to be restored?
I fear they are not...

Kind regards

In this article from Royal Russia, it says that they will be used for temporary exhibits. Hopefully, the rooms will at least be the same size, etc, as the original rooms, but it doesn't sound like they will look as they did when the Imperial Family lived there. :(

That article was the reason I asked here :)
Thanks anyway of course!

Cheers

Breath-taking, I never thought I would live to see this, can't wait to visit. Funny the Imperial Bedroom looks smaller than I imagined.

You weren't imagining, David_Newell.  These rooms are large:  30'x30'x30'.  The bedroom only looks smaller because the bed alcove takes up so much room.  Perhaps it was originally planned that way intentionally to make such a cavernous room a much more intimate and cozy bedroom.
