The Alexander Palace: A Walk Through the State Rooms
Now Playing: Language: NA - Music. Duration: 16 minutes, 50 seconds
Topic: Alexander Palace

The following 16-minute video (with musical accompaniment)  takes us through the State Rooms of the Alexander Palace at Tsarskoye Selo.

The restoration of the Portrait, Semi-Circular and Marble Halls were completed in 2010, marking the 300th anniversary of Tsarskoye Selo.

It was from the Semi-Circular Hall that Tsar Nicholas II, his family and retinue departed the Alexander Palace for the last time on August 1, 1917. From here they were taken to the Alexandrovsky Station, and taken by train into exile to Siberia.
