The Children's Floor - Aleksey's Classroom
In one of the the pictures above there are two desks, one is for the Tsarevich's teacher and the other is Aleksey's. Above Aleksey's desk hangs a wide fringed hanging lamp. On the wall behind the desk is a very large blackboard with an attached spotlight. Next to it is a map of European Russia, while a map of the entire Russian Empire hangs above the bookcases lining the room. On top of the bookcases are standing display cases containing collections of various items used in the instruction the natural sciences. These curiosities managed to capture the attention of the Tsarevich, who was easily bored in class. Instruction of the Tsarevich was a challenge to his teachers due to his ill-health, the frequent changes in residence of the family and the boy's general inattention to studies.
