It does us good to examine who said what, when, why, and how it has become distorted in retelling to decipher this riddle.  I don't think Nikulin played this piano.  I'm quite certain neither Olga nor any of the other GD's did either.  I highly doubt they were allowed into the Commandant's room to play. 

I assume it was moved by Avdayev and co. so they could get drunk and play revolutionary songs at night.

There is a whole thread about this, filled with rambling posts by yours truly:

No. I think it should have stayed there like a memento. I´m glad the Churhc was raised on that place and it is still held in memory what happened there.

I agree with Ally. I'm glad it wasn't thought of as not important. What if somebody had decided to build a fastfood place there?

Yes, I'm agree!
I am glad that "the door will never reopened", but I know that was not completely right to demolish the house.

Thank you for link, JStorey! I just read Nikulin sometimes indeed played piano.

The entire quote of the "Nikulin played piano" testimony should reveal the true player.

i would have liked to visit the Ipatiev house and it was a shame it was demolished but if it wasn't demolished then-

- it could have turned into tourist attraction and this could have been taken advantage of (profit), surley this would have ruined the importance and "feeling" of the house?

I'm sure the Church on Blood is now in use for Lent services. I hope all people would remember what happened on that site .

Amazing colored fotos  by the most wonderful Yelena Aleksandrovna. Endless thank you very much!

I'm just having a little trouble working out the layout of Nicholas and Alexandra's and Alexi's room at the Ipatiev house.

"http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f295/tom_romanov/inside2_005.jpg"- here's a picture

The wall in which there is a wardrobe etc, in FOTR it says this is the northern wall - so is this the wall they shared with OTMA's bedroom?

In FOTR is also describes two bedsteads, pushed into a corner this is also on the northern wall . would there have been a double bed for Nicholas and Alexandra and a camp bed for Alexi? Its just there doesn't seem to be a lot of space in that room :
- two beds
- a sofa or armchair (different sources vary)
- a fewl chairs
-a wardrobe
- a vanity unit
- an etagere
- a bookcase
- a dressing table
- a writing table

thanks,
tom

No, the wall their bedroom shared with OTMA's would have been the western wall. (The photographer was probably standing in the doorway to OTMA's bedroom to take this photo.) The northern wall of N&A's bedroom had no door or windows, and was shared by the drawing room/study. The wall most visible in this photo is the eastern wall, which faced Vosnesensky Prospekt. The southern wall (not visible) also had two windows and faced Vosnesensky Lane.
