Images from Catherine Palace, Pushkin/Russia. 

 

This palace was the summer residence of the Russian tsars. The interior was almost completely destroyed in WWII but is now beautifully reconstructed.
Soviet archivists had managed to document a fair amount of the interior before the war, which proved of great importance in reconstructing the palace.

 

All Nikon Z6 + Nikkor Z 24-70mm f4 S

Fantastic images, Luc. Is that real gold ornate? If so, no wonder they kicked the Czar's out!

Thanks Dallas. Yes, that's all gold ornate. And it's a lot of it.

 

And also outside 😉

I'm pretty sure in its heyday all the brown decorations on the facade were also gold plated.

      Yesterday I attended the KLM 100 Experience, an event to celebrate the 100th birthday of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.
      The event was nice, the behind the scenes opportunity was more interesting 😀

      The Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) is a 15th century church located on Dam Square, next to the Royal Palace.
      The Nieuwe Kerk is no longer used for church services but is used as an exhibition space. It is also used for organ recitals.
      The main organ in these images was completed in 1655 and consists of 5.005 pipes.
