Young Catherine was filmed in the Catherine Palace.  It has been many years since I have seen it, but there were a few scenes filmed in the Great Hall, which is similar to the anterooms.  Hope this info helps.

Thank you so much for the links.  I had no idea that there were porcelain stands in the first anteroom as well.  It's a pity they weren't restored.  They must have been a later addition and it is nice to have Rastrelli's rooms returned to his original intention.  I appreaciate your research!




Has any work been done to the roof since the last posting, or is this treasure still deteriorating?

I thought I might get the ball rolling with a few pics of the first anteroom I found online.

I was hoping someone could tell me what the time line is for the restoration of the Catherine Palace?  I know that within the past few years the amber room and Rastrelli's anterooms have been restored, but does anyone know anything about other rooms?  Is the chapel going to be completed soon?  or any of Catherine the Great's private apartments?  Any information would be sincerely appreciated. 

Also, I have been trying to find photos of the anterooms I just mentioned.  I have several very nice shots of the anteroom closest to the great hall, but I don't have any of the other two.  What I would most like to know is if the porcelain stands from the second anteroom were restored.  I can't find any information either way.  I've added a link here showing what I'm talking about.  (In almost every instance I've ever seen a photo of the room, it is called the first anteroom, though this is erroneous.  Thought I should clarify as it can get confusing)

Again, any information at all would be truly appreciated, and photos would be wonderful!

I thought I'd put up a few more.

An overall view of the White Vestibule

One of the ceilings (I THINK it is the first anteroom, but I'm not sure)

The Green Pilaster Room.  The pilasters are green foil under glass.  One of the adjoining rooms is the Red Pilaster Room, which is more frequently photographed.  Unfortunatley, I don't have any good pictures of it on my computer.

Does anyone have any current pictures of the other restored anterooms?  They were completed only about a year or so ago, and I've only seen pictures of the one I've posted.  I'm especially curious to see pictures of the second anteroom as it had huge stands for porcelain before the war.

I think this should work.  Here are a few pics of the amber room, and I'll try and post some more of various rooms next week.  I tried to get pictures of the room at various times of day.  These are pics I found on the internet and to the best of my knowledge are not copyrighted.

I'm sorry nothing is up yet.  I'm having a very difficult time getting the pictures to show up.  I've got one last thing to try and if that doesn't work I'm going to email them to the forum and post them that way.  Terribly sorry!

Where did you get the picture of the Lyon Hall after the war?  Is it from a book?


Are you still looking for interior pictures?  I've got a ton.
