Please count me in!

If I had time to plan for next year (2006) or the year after, I would make an concerted effort to go.

My dream?

St Petersburg
Tsarskoe Selo
Peterhof

As I mentioned in another thread, money would be a problem, but I did look into just this trip for my husband and myself earlier this year.  So many of the packages included "night club crawling" and visits to Catherdrals which did not interest my husband or me.
I was put off by sites that advertised meeting Russian women (but I guess that's something that just goes on).
When I do get to visit, I want to be able to walk slowly and emerse myself in the city and the atmosphere.  I want to try to "touch" that which is now gone and "picture" the past.
It always seemed to me that the past was lived in black and white, because color film had not yet been invented and we have nothing to show us the brightness that must have been.
To be able to see, in person, the colors of the palaces and the exhibits of clothing and houshold items would be a little piece of heaven.

This would be an amazing trip to take. To see all of the places that you have been seeing in pictures forever in real life! And being around people who share your interests. I would like to take this kind of trip, but unfortunatley, I am only fourteen and I doubt my parents would pay this much. All I can do is wait until I'm older and wish the others fortunate enough a good trip and bring back lots and lots of pictures! ;D

I am not sure if this is the right place for this information.

I just received two books that I ordered from Gilbertroyalbooks, and he informed me that he is planning a trip, next year in September, to St. Petersburgh, Moscow and Yekaterinburgh.

We have talked about doing a trip to Tsarskoe Selo and REALLY seeing things - the problem is the price - how many people could afford it - Exeter International does these things but a trip is not cheap.  I'd really like to get people's comments on this - we can do a trip if there is enough interest.

Last year we thought about doing a trip to Livadia but it was expensive...

Eurohistory is taking another tour to St. Petersburg next September 2006 at the time of the reburial of the Dowager Empress.  We will count with the support while there of two well-known Russian royalty authors and experts and will focus on visiting as many Romanov-related sites as possible in the 9 days we will be in and around St. Petersburg, along with having daily lectures on topics pertaining to the imperial family.
