I know there is a thread for this but I couldn't find it.  The article gives an interesting perspective from a aristocrats point of view.

Does anyone have a photo of this palace belonging to Grand Duke Peter??  Does it still exist today?  If so, what is it's use?  This was the palace where part of the Romanov family was held by the Soviets, before their escape.

Has anyone read this book?  It has an interesting slant on the five women who ruled Russian after the death of Peter the Great.  I could see why the succession laws were changed with all of the intrigue that took place!!!  :o

Palaces in St. Petersburg / Yelagin Palace

Maybe I have missed it but I haven't seen any discussion on the Yelagin Palace, even though there are pictures of it on the site.  What can anyone tell me about it?  Does it still exist and if so what's it use now?  Looks like a great place.

Books about the Romanovs and Imperial Russia / Fred Markam in Russia

I came across this book in a box I've had for years.  Fred Markam in Russia, published in the mid to late 1800's.  Styled along a diary someone kept while visiting Russia.  Anyone know anything about it???

Romanov and Imperial Russia Links / Traveling in Russia

Does anyone know of someone who leads tours to Russia.  Someone who has a background in the Romanovs etc.  ???

I just finished a fairly recent book titled IMPERIAL LEGEND, by Troubetskoy.  An interesting look at the mystery surrounding Alexander I's death.  Anyone else read it??  What is your opinion?
