Alupka was a place in South Crimea where Russian Tsars have spent their winter days in comfort of a more mild Southern climate enjoying weather in Crimea, sea and breeze. For purposes like this they built a palace, and then in Soviet times it was “musei” – or if you wish “museum” as we speak. And since that times there some postcards survived and we can see the beauty of the kings.
This was the set of the postcards in question: “Alupka Palace-Museum Interriors”
This dinner table has the views of Rome.
A library for Tsars
This was called a “Blue Dining Room”
A portrait of the Dutchess
And husband with the kids is posing still
A table decoration in a billiard room
A portrait of the Queen Ekaterina
A Winter Garden for the kings to rest.
A Carpet with a Shakh Fatkh Ali.
A Stone watch with figures of Moscow saviors and the Tsar chair
The bigger dining room. And every Soviet person could come visit and see how kings have lived before
Some furniture from China for the royals
Another duke in his bright outfit
And different vases to bet set on tables
An office room for the Tsar noble self
And room where kings could listen to the music.
That was the luxury of kings, but Lenin has abolished all this shortly.
