St Petersburg Yusupov Palace-staircases


The big entrance staircase.

Read about this family at your favorite online source.  Amazingly rich.  The revolution made them leave it all and get out of town.  One of the descendants now lives in Greece.  She has asked the Russian government to restore some of the belongings to her.  They may still be laughing. They do let her come visit any time she likes.
