Ty the Tasmanian Tiger - Bridge on the River Ty
I almost forgot how fun this game’s OST was. I should really track down the second and third games one of these days, I missed them when they came out. >_<
Marsupial Lion Warrior turned 1 today!
Grigori is much happy today. Like giving thanks for friends so far, even if for few.
Wow, has it been a year already?
So does anyone else still remember Ty the Tasmanian Tiger? I do.
Russian Imperial Palaces → The Gatchina Palace
The Great Gatchina Palace was built in 1766-1781 in Gatchina town for Count Grigori Grigoryevich Orlov who was a favourite of Catherine II. The Gatchina Palace is located on the hill above Lake Serebryannoe. It combines themes of a medieval castle and a country residence. Palace interiors are exemplary of Russian classicism at the turn of 18th-19th centuries. The Gatchina Palace was one of the favourite residences of the Imperial family. Tsar Alexander II used Gatchina Palace as his second residence. He built a hunting village and other additions for his Imperial Hunting Crew, and turned the area south of Gatchina into a retreat where the Tsar and his guests could indulge in living in the unspoiled wilderness and of northwestern Russia. Alexander II also made updates and renovations in the main Gatchina Palace.
Following Alexander II’s assassination in Saint Petersburg in 1881, his shaken son, Tsar Alexander III, was advised that he and his family would be safer at Gatchina as opposed to at the Winter Palace in the capital. He moved his family there permanently. Alexander III introduced technological modernization in the Gatchina Palace and parks such as electric lights, a telephone network, non-freezing water pipes and a modern sewage system. The last Tsar of Russia, Nicholas II, spent his youth here in the Gatchina Palace, although he and his family would make Tsarskoe Selo his home. His mother, Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna, the widow of Alexander III, was the patron of the city of Gatchina and Gatchina Palace and parks.
