Visited a few days ago and it was fabulous! A must-see if you come to Saint Petersburg.

Only downside is the extra 350 р that must be paid (in addition to the 700 р ticket) to go down to the basement. I didn't pay this out of principle. Photos of the basement are plastered all over Google, anyway.

i finally finished my plan of the ground floor.   i know there are a couple of areas that are incorrect, but for lack of any information, i had to guess.

Marvelous plan Brian!

At least Irina's rooms faced the garden rather than the busy street. I remember we walked through huge gates from the road behind the palace to the garden.

I really like this plan, BRNBG.  I can't get enough of studying it.

a description of part of Feliks Feliksovich junior's private apartments facing the Moika:

"The enfilade was opened by the Library, the walls of which were lined with Karelian birch panels and “covered with emerald painting”. It was followed by the Dining Room of "Amethyst", then the Cabinet of the Young Prince, with the chariots of Apollo and Aurora, soaring in the picturesque vaults, painted by N. Tyrsa.

Nearby, there was a large living room, furnished with a Parisian white set of “swan-neck shape”, topped with a shade with the finest openwork paintings of S. Chekhonin. The last hall in the suite - the Ballroom (Dance), was decorated with a colonnade of light-coffee artificial marble, snow-white wall bas-reliefs by the sculptor B. Yakovlev and paintings of refined coloristic shades - N. Tyrsa. According to the architect A. Beloborodov, a gallery of the Winter Garden adjoined the semicircular part of the hall."
