  • Cottage Palace was built by the Emperor Nicholas I for himself and his family in the Gothic style. The first floor was under personal rooms Alexandra fiodorovna and under general family rooms. On the second floor were the rooms of the Emperor and the baby, and on the third floor were rooms courtiers and Cabinet Emperor-the marine room. Stunning views of the Gulf of Finland. In the Interior a lot of paintings, furniture, porcelain, silver and bronze. Impressive large dining room with oak chairs. The only drawback of this museum is that due to the small number of tourists trips here are not as often as in petrodvorets and plaques describing objects and rooms No. Alone will not be very interesting to just run through the halls. But otherwise a very interesting exposition. Visit this place with excursion.

  • The Palace of the "Cottage"-place, amazing in so many ways. For lovers of history, it is important that almost everything in it is not restored, but genuine, so since that time, the rescued during the great patriotic war. But it is also a monument to Nicholas the first gentle love to his wife Alexandra Fyodorovna. All those white roses in the arms and in the Interior of her characters devičeskogo nicknames, Gothic style buildings-her favorite architectural style, the name of Alexandria, this this place by the name of his mistress. Everything in the Palace exudes simplicity, family warmth. No pomposity and while grace and delicate taste. The last Mistress "Cottage" was the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna (widow of Alexander the third), and two rooms in the Palace are saved as. Picturesque is laid out around the Palace "private garden", with the north side offers views of the Gulf of Finland (especially from the Office on the third floor). In the Palace there is no sign, even with the names of the halls, so you might prefer to come here with a guided tour. There are, however, inexplicable charm to walk through the Palace in silence and pustynnosti, stay with him alone, without disturbing the life of his beautiful shadows.

  • In the park there are Alexandria Palace "Cottage" Nicholas built for his wife and children, to seek solitude in silence. Palace on Palace is not similar, maybe that's why not many come into it. But inside it's cosy, not visible pomposity, but only places to relax from the balls and celebrations. Go to it, just come and specifically, rather than on the way in Peterhof. Alexandria deserves a separate day.
