Azazello, many, many thanks for the link to that Livadia website. What a treasure trove of photos! I'm also enjoying the section re: Ai-Petri. No wonder Nicholas enjoyed visiting and hiking that formidable mountain, and what incredible views of the beaches and Black Sea!

Janet, you're very welcome :)

By the way, I'm not expert in English nor in history, so if you'll notice any errors please let me know.

And if anybody needs the photos from that site, please feel free to use them. If you need bigger sizes, just say which ones you need, I'll upload them.

This could be seen as out-of-the-way here,but as many knows baccarat created many objects dor the use of the russian court ,of the imperial family among others in Livadia that's why Baccarat enterprise create this bottle currently ,perhaps is this  beside the question(I bring a strange new lease of life to the Livadia question...)

It is called"Un certain été   Livadia"..

Where exactly are the wax figures located? I was there in 2003, and mercifully, there were no wax figures!

How did the Imperial Family travel from St. Petersburg to Livadia?  Does anyone know how long that trip would take?
