Any guesses what that is? Looks like some kind of a palace, doesn’t it?
Surprisingly, it is not. Those rooms are located in the Tver Railway station. Tver was an important point of the Nikolaev railway, which was built in the middle of the 19th century in order to connect St. Petersburg and Moscow.
In the epoch of the Russian Empire, many important people visited the station: Alexander III with Empress Maria Alexandrovna, Princess and Prince of Oldenburg of Oldenburg.
Vaulted ceilings, antique fireplaces, moldings and exquisite chandeliers, monumental oak frames with marble window-sills - most recently the restoration of the imperial rooms was completed and the historical appearance of the station was finally restored.
The highlight of the project is the Round Room, where Emperor Nicholas I received high-ranking officials and important guests. Today it is as gorgeous as during the reign of the Romanovs.
