Yes, it is. The photo is not of a very high quality, but I published a new picture on the web.

I published the chapter about stables. Sorry for the quality, I did my best. The paper reflects light so I can't use the flash. If it is illegible, contact me.

I hope you enjoy.

Rasputin / Re: The death - revealing the truth
« on: December 14, 2007, 02:21:11 PM »
Thanks so much for all the information!   ;)

Well, this task was set to me during the seminar of history at my school. (Or, honestly, I chose this topic myself 'cause I've been interested in Grigorij since I was twelve.) It has been a work for 2 years and I am supposed to finish it these days. I hoped to get valuable info during my stay in Petersburg, Tobolsk, Tyumen and Pokrovskoe, where I spent a month of this summer holidays...and I actually did (especially visiting the places where that all took place), but some questions still remain and I would like to write a report as unbiased as possible.

And which part is the basement with the mirror room, the study, the dining room in which Grigorij was killed....?

Rasputin / The death - revealing the truth
« on: December 13, 2007, 03:46:12 PM »
I am working on a certain paper on Rasputin and I think a lot about what happened the night he was killed. I came accross several questions I can't answer:

1) In this thread,9633.0.html an autopsy report is written. Where did it turn up, when so many authors considered to have been destroyed by bolshevicks? Why did't the authors simply take it as the most reliable evidence?

I personally believe it more then the theory he survived the shots, but to work with it, I need a precise description of the source. Where is the report available?
2) If it is true, how did it happen that the ropes around wrists of Grigorij were loosened?

Thank you for every opinion. Please, mention only reasonable ideas with reliable sources.

Does anyone have the plan of the Jusupov Palace - the part where Rasputin was killed? I need the layout of rooms. Thanks a lot in advance, it is quite important for me at the moment.

I bought this book in English during my visit to St. Petersburg. As far as I know, it is sold only in the Palace. I really don't remember the price anymore, but it couldn't have been more than 500 roubles. Probably it was less!
As it was said, it is informative. If you aren't a really big fan of this family, you will be probably bored. There are almost no photos of the family. You read information about the heating system, toilets, cooking... If you are really interested in some of these topics, I can send you some info from the book.

Forum Announcements / Re: Formal Press Release from Ekaterinburg
« on: August 27, 2007, 05:28:17 AM »
I am now in Russia. This information was published in many Russian newspapers and as far as I have spoken to Russian historians, they belive, the remains really could belong to Alexei. The Russian newspapers say the girl, whose remains were found, is Maria.

It may sound quite strange, but no/one except for historians is really excited about the discovery. I was quite disappointed to find out the Russians are not so fussy about the last Imperial family as are people in Western Europe etc. Well, I am gonna go to Ekaterinburg next week, so I will see.

Rasputin / The House in Pokrovskoe

Is Rasputin's house in Pokrovskoe still standing? Some books say it was pulled down during the Soviet era, in other ones it written the museum can be now found in this house. Thanks!

Thank you all for your great suggestions!! It is really helpful for me.

Just one or two other things...

To Fred: At your own topic, showing the Rapsutin's flat, I asked you for some infos cocnerning entering the flat. Please, be so kind and share your experiences, it would be really helpful for me.

To All: does anyone know the name of the bridge from which Rapsutin's body was thrown down? Is there any notice or something like that marking the exact place?

As I have already said, thanks for all your answers!

Thanks Fred! Good job. Well, I am in St. Petersburg now and I am gonna visit the flat. Is it on the address Gorokhovaya 64? What floor?

I do not feel like just knocking on one's door. Do not the inhabitors of the flat mind my comming? How much roubles should I give for the visit and to whom?

The man, you are speaking about, his name is Painter, like "khudozhnik" in Russian?

Thanks a lot. Please, if you know some other places connected with Rasputin in Petersburg, tell me, or even buildings where some of his admirers used to live etc. Please try depict the way, if you can.
