How beautiful!

I suppose this is a silly question, but is the memorial still there? Is it still standing? If it is, it would be one of my top 10 attractions should I ever go to Russia ;)!

Unfortunately, I don't believe it is.  I would have to guess it was destroyed...

There is a memorial in the Pavlosk park, but it does not look like this.  It had been heavily vandalised and is now gated off. [that was during my visit in 2008] I am not even sure it  was for AP.

Oh, Dru and Robert, how terrible!  :'(

It's terrible that people abuse such monuments, regardless of who it is, and cause honest, good-hearted people like most of us on this Forum to suffer by having the monument gated off.

Alexandra Pavlovna's husband Joseph (second from the left) with her father and elder brothers.

I'm guessing that was after the wedding?

Also, I know Paul I is second from right, and Joseph is second from left. Do you, by any chance, know which of the others was Alexander and which was Constantine?

I think Alexander is the one on the far left.

Allegorical image honoring Alexandra Pavlovna.  She is the central figure, and the couple on the left is Alexander I and Elizaveta Alexeievna (some people seem to think it's actually Maria Feodorovna).  On the right are Alexandra's confessor, Father Andrei Samborsky, and his granddaughter Elizaveta.
