Palaces in Moscow / Re: The Kremlin - general information
« on: January 01, 2011, 01:11:55 PM »
Welkome to Kremlin!
We have not so many tourists in January and February.

As for ghosts, I know  about only one ghost in Kremlin - ghost of Iwan the Terrible.

At the end of the December, in the Japan has finished the demonstration of the 9 series of this television drama (totally there are 13 series).
As I heard,  All Japan was astonished by the beauty of our St. Petersburg palaces: Ecaterina, Alexander Palace, Palace of Grand Duke Vladimir, Ksheshinskaya Palace, Yusupov Palace, Pavlovsk , Polovtsev palace etc.
I really hope to have a chance to show this quite unique TV drama not only in Japan, but in Russia, Europe and America.

Now, there is a museum in the convent too.

The original book is very big and luxurious.

Nicholas II / Re: Why did Niicholas want the Japan - Russia war?

Nikolay did not want a  war.
He wanted the peace.
He was keeeping to insist for such position since Haague Conference at 1899 .

If some channel in Europe or UK would be interested in this piece of work, (it is truly that this drama is very well made), NHK with pleasure will sell it.
So, If some channel is interested in this, pls contact me.
thank you.

One volume per 1000$is very cheap for Russia.
You can not buy this book even for 10000$in Russia now.

I started this new topic, because Japan is not only the Otsu.
I would be very grateful, if somebody would help me to find any sources about the Japanese dimplomats in St. Petersburg 1890-1904 years.
Especially , I am interested in Nisshi,Hayashi,Komura, Kurino.
Thank you very much in advance.

The fregate "Pamyaty Azova" came to Colombo 31st January 1891.
His cousins's ship's name was "Tamara". They came to Colombo 3rd of January.Nicholas had to spend at Ceylon 3 days, but, spent more.
I know that in India he was accompanied by Sir Donald Mc.Kenji Walliace and Colonel Gerard.

Japanese Television "NHK" at December 2009 started television drama "Saka no ue no kumo" (Cloud on the hill) based on the same-named bestseller of Shiba Ryotaro.
This television drama consists of 13 parts per 90 minutes each.
This is about Meiji era of Japan , especially about Russo-Japanese war and abot  the life of 4 friends, who left their names in the history.
One of them - Akiyama Saneyuki, famous admiral.
Last december first 5 parts was shown. Next 5 will come this December 2010.NHK  shooted this drama at 8 countries: Japan,Russia,Malta,China,France,England, Latviya.
In Russia , we shooted in Moscow and St. Petersburg - at Alexandrovsky, Ekaterininsky, Pavlovsk, Yusupovsky, Grand Duke Vladimir, Ksheshinskaya, Polovtsev palaces.
Also at Feodorovsky gorodok, Zimnyaa kanavka, Dvortsovaya square, Nekrasov apartment, Yusupovsky garden  etc.

Historically, it is very good made television drama .

The Alexander Palace / Re: Arts of the table of the Alexander Palace

Now the former Lomonosof factory of Peterburg started to make replicas of the palace's  porcelaine.
So anyone could buy it in the special shops.
But the price for such replicas is very high.
maybe it is better to buy the original one from the French auction :)

Joseph Brodsky, in his esse "watermark" wrote about Polignac palazzo in Venezia.
Do you know, where si it?

A lot of them could not write, I suppose :)

Please do not forget, that Agate rooms were only one place which remained after the war without any changes .
So the scope of restoration work in Agate rooms and Maple room are not the same.

And their children had got a wonderful expensive education (engineers, doctors etc) paid by Imperial Family.
