Right here in America is a museum of Russian Icons. It's in Clinton MA. I have to tell you. That this Museum the Icons they have from the Czars is amazing.
We took a tour of this musum this past week, I'm going to head back there this coming week because the two hours we had of time just wasn't enough to see it all.

The link to Alexander Palace Time Machine site, is up .

You know, we have seen so mnay photo's of the AP " first floor, outside grounds" but there are very few photo's of the second floor. I think it would be exciting to see the second floor past and present.

I can understand the fustration of Admins, however is it really needed to bite someone's head off? more so  a nob? I hope it doesn't prevent  new people from asking questions. yes they , or should I say,everyone should do a little more  deeper research. but thus, some people don't. they get an idea in there head and boom they fire off a question. without realizing hey there may be info on this already, be that on this forum or on the AP site . but in the end everyone is a little different yes?

Happy new year all. health and happyness.

I’m sorry but I do not see this as being relevant, what two people do behind closed doors as "man and wife" belong to them and them alone.

We had talked about this last night my wife and I, and she thinks that he was scared to death when they blocked his train. And thus, caved in right away when there was not many of his people around to protect him.

I think he simply gave up. All he wanted to do at that point was go home, anyway he could. No he didn't think about what would come out of it in the ling run. I don't think he could think past what he wanted to do at that time. that was to go home.

From my point of view, when you take a tour, let me say. like a "tour bus". What you are being shown is only the lustrous of the history in question. To really see, feel and experience the true dept of the history your looking at, you need to step off the path and dig about the back roads, when comparing the AP with the CP. It’s like night and day. The CP has been rebuilt and polished to a high shine. While the AP as been left raw within her state of disrepair. It’s apparently clear that what the general tourist wants to see is the polished glamour of what these palaces looked like "the amber room" with all its entire splendor. When visiting the CP one can actually see and feel that CP wasn’t just a home but a true Palace. Where as the AP was more raw in it’s charm. It was a working palace, even though it was more of a home than it was a palace. In comparison with the palaces that one would vision a King/Queen living in.
Also given the events of that happened within the AP that side of history is far less glamorous, than the events of what happened within the CP .It really comes down to the draw of the money.the CP has the draw where as the AP does not. But for those of us who are true history buffs. The AP and the events that went on within her walls are far more attractive  than any of the rooms within the CP that have been done over.

Wow, hey you two girls have done some great research work. And have written well defined and articulate works.  I’ve enjoyed reading the works that you two have done. Seems to me that it’s better to perhaps work out your problems. Because in the end you both produce some great works.

It is something to be said about the Russian people as well. For all it’s worth Russians tends to be more in need of a strong single head leadership than a weak one. Where as we in the west can get by on a weak leader Russia on the other hand can not.

I’m not trying to diss our Russians at all but the fact is Russia is a harsh land the people are tougher in sprit than most others. It has a lot to do with the harshness of the land and climate and the nature of the Russian soul. Even now in the 21st century we see that Russia can not progress without some sort of harsh handed government tactics a pone her people.

The last tsar being weak minded and weak in government affairs, adding to the mix the millions lost in the war, the cure rumors that exploded about the capital about the IF made the situation all the more ripe for revolution. When that revolution did come it was curl, full of anger and hatred which was mostly fueled by rumors and rhetoric like a wild fire that hatred spread throe out the land. And the only way to contain it was by a government body that was as equal in curtly and hatred.
