A disappointment!

Exhibition was disappointing! Not even one Fabergé egg can be admired. Everything we have seen / read, we have already seen / read on TV / books ... too few exclusive items. Very unfortunate ;-)

Beautiful piece of Romanov exibition

Especially the Russian history about the Romanov dynasty the way it is done is great and gives a real good picture why and gow they lived. It shows that they still are popular.
