Sorry Sarushka,

Nicholas and Aleksey Share a Bedroom at Stavka. If you look carefullly, the bed in the back is a small bed.

Reco

Exactly. That's why I posted the photo -- to show that there was no mesh or netting on Aleksei's camp bed at Stavka.

For most of us the Livadia palace is the most interesting museum of Crimea.
Let`s go for a virtual trip.

We are near a palace and today is not Wednesday (the palace is closed on Wednesdays).
First of all we need a ticket.

The Tower (it is a ticket office today)


inside:
Wooden staircase (to the roof of the tower). You can see a door to the second floor. There is a door on the first floor also (to the vestibule).

I agree. Thank you so much, Vladimir! I visited Livadia in 1991 and the photos bring it all back. Alas, didn't see that beautiful staircase, nor the second floor . . . instead our tour spent just a morning at Livadia and time at other sites such as Swallow's Nest, Alupka, Chekov's home, etc. . . . so, obviously I MUST return! ;^)

Thank you, Vladimir, these are the great pictures. And again it proves that the "Atlantis floor plans" are incorrect. Do you have more, by chance?

No, I do not. But I try to draw a floorplan.

The Vestibule (eastern wall) and the view to the adjoining White Hall (State Hall). Earlier this table (used during the Yalta conference) was in the White Hall, where now Summit talks and international meetings are held. (Have in view that the palace is not working during meetings and many tourists feel a shock!)

Does anybody have a photograph of a room in Livadia? There is a couch, a chair and a big armchair. There's a small version of it in the photo album, but I've seen it bigger and clearer. There is nobody in the photo, just that room.

Thanks!
