I can understand a little of it. I think the first man introduces Nicholas by his full title -- I clearly hear "grand duke," "imperial," "emperor," and "Nikolai Aleksandrovich." Then they launch into the national anthem and the chorus of "hurrahs." Near the very end, Nicholas himself says spasiba braht, which means "thank you brothers." The rest is either too fuzzy or words I don't know (mostly the latter, I must admit :-[).

My favorite is the guy who hollers "woo-hoo" in the middle of the national anthem.  ;D

Click on "Free" and then you have to wait a few seconds while your so-called 'download ticket' is prepared.

Now, below the 'download via' list that appears, it says "No Premium user. Please enter here." Below that there's a square full of random letters and numbers. Look at the square full of letters & numbers -- four of them will be larger and darker than the rest. Next to where it says "here" is a little blank box. Enter the four letters and/or numbers that appear in extra-large print, then hit  enter or click "Download from...." Voila!

If all you see is the "Payment-possibilities" chart, you've scrolled too far!

Thank You!!! Sarushka I heard Nicholas voice even though I do understand some of it. His voice sounds like he's tired and weak. :)

I also only know of this one example of his voice being recorded. However, if anyone knows any links to any other websites that have other examples, please post them. Though I think I might be asking for the impossible here. :P

Wow! I played it several times in a row! Like everyone else I wish there where more recordings! I thought I would hear a much more soft spoken person in Nicholas. I suppose thats based on what you read about him being week, soft etc. But he sounded like a men who was very sure of himself. Thanks again Sarushka :)

I read in Russia the Great that he was a mere 5'6" tall and his Romanov uncles all seemed to tower over him. He tried to compensate for his height by working out with weights and athletic equipment. No matter what he did to build up his size he still remained slight and wiry in physique. His legs were short, but this was less apparent when he was on horseback.

Cheers.

That's quite true. One of the most well-known photos of Nicholas II and Nikolai Nikolaevich standing side by side at the front has been altered to conceal how much shorter the tsar was than his uncle.  ;)

Wow.  Did they make his uncle bend down or what?  I wonder if Nicholas rode on small horses too so he would look big.  Couldn't he put something in his boots to make him look tall when he was standing on the ground?  Louis the 14th was short and starting wearing high heels but then everyone else copied him and he was right back where he started.  When you're short I guess you just stay that way no matter what you do.  What's wrong with being short anyway?  Some people just are and its not their fault.
