The Home of the Last Tsar - Romanov and Russian History

- Study of Alexander III

Office of Nicholas's Father

Alexander III had his office here when he was Tsarevich and used the room extensively throughout the 1870's. It had originally been a sitting room of Olga Nicholeavna, daughter of Nicholas I. The rooms has many similarities to the study of Alexander's son, Nicholas II. The big divan is the most striking feature and it almost fills up one side of the rooms, just as in Nicholas II's study of the opposite side of the palace. Alexander III was an amateur restorer of old paintings and a collector of fine art. He did much of his restoration work here in this room.

One striking difference between Alexander's study and that of his son is a large conference table here. Nicholas had no such table in his working study as he preferred to work with his ministers one-on-one.
