Nicholas II’s Curiosity Revisiting Palaces Where He Had Lived (3)

After their wedding in November 1894, Nicholas and Alexandra would often escape the Anichkov palace for quiet times together at the Alexander Palace in Tsarskoe Selo.

On Thursday December 15th, 1894 Nicholas wrote “… After lunch we went to the Big Palace [Catherine Palace], which we looked over in detail … the upper floor and rooms of Alexander, Marie Feodorovna, and also the rooms of Anpapa and Anmama. All in all, the visit was a good one …”

The following photographs of the Catherine Palace were taken in 1859.
