Thanks Lilijones for the link,

I tried to understand the text despite my russian lessons, it is still too hard to understand for me..sorry!

I did not think the park was so huge...could someone tell me what are those buildings and what was their aims?







--the top one is the pond/lake on the property;

--the 2nd from the top is the gardener's cottage;

--the third from the top could be the stable / garage building, but the doorway doesn't look quite big enough.  or it could be a service building, such as a laundry, or something like that....but that's just a guess;

-- the bottom 3 are of the (ruined) conservatory / tea house.    i don't think the new owners intend to restore it.   from what little i can remember of what little i could understand in the article, that's the impression i got.

Thank you Liljones for these pictures of the Yusupov Palace in Tsarskoe Selo.
I'm so glad to see that this beautiful building has been restored. It doesn't matter by whom as ownership of such a gem is always temporary......It was in a terrible state when I did this painting of it in 2001. Thank goodness it has been saved from destruction.

The restoration of the Youssoupov's pavillion in Tsarskoye Selo is part of the program of the restoration of the town for its 300 birthday.

Restoration of interiors and the park has begun:

these were built by the architect, A.P. Vaitens, for the princess Yusupov as part of the farm complex of the Yusupov villa at Tsarskoïe-Selo.

Amazing to see that the princess was interested in ancient russian style of architecture!

I assume that these Russian pavillions are now destroyed, I did not read about it on any site...sad.

Thanks a lot for sharing!

Fantastic find Brian!

It is of the henhouse. In 1909-1911, architect A. Vaitens reconstructed the Yusupov pavilion. It was modernized, electricity was installed, some new interiors decorated and a henhouse was built. I doubt if there is any trace left of the ground area similar to GD Boris' tea house that was destroyed during the war. I am curious of the location of the henhouse as I would have thought it was placed nearer to the Kolonistsky Pond. The two or three storey stone building that is shown in your photo very close to the henhouse would have been located closer to Pavlovskoe Shosse. Is it possibly Danini's Maternity Hospital and therefore the henhouse was on the farther side of the gardener's cottage?

I did! I always check your posts!

I have numerous books on the Yussupov palaces, villas, etc. and one has the notation of the henhouse but I had never seen a photo of it. It was thrilling to see your two views. There is a fence that divides the properties today but whether it was the same position c1910, I do not know and the ground area had been reclaimed.

Of the private apartments of Felix and Irina, I have the book on the history with photos/plans/etc. but have not as yet translated. I will attempt soon but am working on research at the moment.

does anyone know what book that might be?

does anyone else have that book?   
and if so, would you be willing to scan the plans
& send them to me privately or post them here?
.

the only plan i have, is the same one that virtually everyone else has -- that of the main floor w/ the ballroom & galleries, zenaida & feliks Sr. rooms etc.   you have absolutely no idea how long i've been looking for a plan (any plan) of the ground floor, especially of feliks Jr. & irina's rooms.  and i can't even begin to describe how much...               


...oh, never mind.


be well, y'all.

The restoration of the Dacha is still going on. Though I'd say it has stopped at some moment and that's all.
 I am a frequent visitor to Tsarskoye Selo and always hope to see something new with the Dacha - but always  the same: bright pink colour of the mansion seen from the road, high steel wall around the building area, large screen above the wall with description "Restoration of the Dacha of Princess Z.I.Yusupova" and nothing new.
The investors had wanted to open a hotel in the newly-restored Dacha...will see.
