Rare photos from the personal photo album of Nikolai II find out in the museum of Zlatoust

A series of photos of the last Russian emperor was introduced to the public. Most of them have never been published. The unique photos which supposedly were taken to Zlatoust by the participants of the execution lay in the museum’s archives unnoticed. Some photos show Nikolai II, his wife and children staying in Mogilev.

The photos were taken by the tsar himself, his children and his trusted people. All 210 photos bear inscriptions and dates. Historians suppose the photos belong to a small family album collected by Nikolai II.

The most interesting photo shows fifteen-year old Anastasia tasting a cigarette held by Nikolai. It happened in Mogilev in 1916.

In one of the photos tsarevitch Alexei, the heir to the crown, is wearing a striped swimming suit and playing with a ball in the company of his dad on the Dnepr banks not far from Mogilev. There is also a photo showing tsarevitch Alexei and his spaniel in a tree. At the beginning of the war of 1914 the boy and two little kids of his teacher are playing soldiers.

One more photo of 1916 shows Nikolai and his generals who are tasting oats.

In one of the most exotic photos Nikolai II, Alexei and his teacher are walking with an elephant not far from their palace in Tsarskoye Selo in 1914.
