Tsar's bathtub
« on: October 30, 2004, 03:42:18 PM »
I have often read how the Tsar's bathtub in the Alexander Palace was quite huge and more like a small indoor swimming pool than a bathtub. So I was very pleased to actually see a picture of it in the Nicholas & Alexandra exhibition catalog (pg. 17). I had never seen the actual tub before, just pictures of the bathroom.

From what the picture shows, it certainly looks rather deep. The book says that the swimming bath held almost 5,000 gallons of water! I was wondering if what the picture shows is the full extent of the bathtub, or did it continue off to the right outside the range of the picture? Also, does anyone know how deep this pool was? It was certainly big and deep enough for Nicholas to "paddle about" and swim in it, as he wrote in his diary, and for Anastasia to jump down onto it from the side platform. It must have been quite remarkable to bathe in this - no wonder it was a treat for the children!

Nicholas being smaller the tub was not as big as one might think.  I would say around 4ft deep, 7-8ft wide and 4ft wide - there's my guess...

Nicholas saw the bath at the Bielovezh Palace -  it had been built for him there and he had one like it built for himself at the Alexander Palace.

Joanna - I am not sure how Nicholas came to have the bathtub installed in his Polish palace.  It was there right at the beginning of his reign so it may have been installed or ordered in his father's reign.

.i feel pretty safe in saying the tsar's tub was not like the giant cooking pot from Boblovo.    i'm pretty sure it was more along the lines of a plunge-pool, like one of these:

these 2, are in the Pless Palace (princess Daisy of Pless' residence), in Poland.  

(above: the tub in the emperor's suit)


(above: the tub in Daisy of Pless' bathroom.    i think N II's tub was much like this one, although his was arabian/moorish in style.)

these 2 photos are of the plunge-pool tub in the palace of grand duke Aleksei Aleksandrovich





==========================
Nikolai II's bathroom in the Aleksandr palais:






(above: this one shows his chin-up bar.....there's a well-known photo of Anastasia as a little girl, hanging from this bar.    also worth noting are his towels.....no mere monogram for him!   they appear to have the Romanov imperial eagle on them.   of course, what i'm seeing may not be a hand-towel at all....but it sure looks like one to me.)

Yes, the Tsar had a plunge type bath. There's a picture of it in the catalogue from the recent exhibition as Newark, Santa Fe etc.

The picture you are referring to was not taken in Nicholas' bathroom. It was taken in the girls' bathroom, the closed doors behind her leading to Olga and Tatiana's room.

Yes, the girls followed their father's example in exercise. They had an adjustable bar in their bathroom. Here's the picture I believe you were referring to. As can be seen, it is quite different from their father's bathroom.

I have uploaded my latest research on ‘Rare Photos in the Winter & Alexander Palaces’.

Is that a Fabergé electric bell-push on Nicholas' bathtub?
