Wow!  They are beautiful. Mr. Beaverhausen and I saw something similar in the Summer Palace, and the craftsmanship was astounding!

Exactly!
All these details, made by hand!!!!
And then all the mechanical parts! I wonder if all them come from abroad or if certain parts were made here.
It's pretty interesting regarding the Industrial Archaeology behind this!

Very cool!  I wonder if they'll find Queen Anne Marie's wedding dress?

Last time I saw film of the cemetery at Tatoi it was in rough shape.   I hope they will restore that too.

I wonder how the Greek royals feel about Tatoi being turned into a 5 star spa. And I wonder if, when it opens, will the royals be there?

It's the 1st time I read that it's going to be a spa. This is not the case - as far as I know. The ministry of culture is in charge for the place, it's in the cleaning and restoration process right now, in order to be turned into a museum. I post pictures once in a while - every time we have new pictures from official authorities.

Oh, I read it here: https://www.athensinsider...otel-and-spa-destination/

But I dont know if they've changed plans since then or if that article is reliable. I saw photos of Tatoi and didn't realise how much work it needs! Sad

WTF
Lina Mendoni, minister of culture has done numerous serious mistakes when it comes to our historical heritage -the fact she's archaeologist it makes it even worst.
I hope it's not true and thank you for the article.
I'm really angry right now.

Re-reading the article, I see that a part of it will be turned into museum and other part into hotel/spa.
I still think it's extremely disrespectful considering the history of the place.

Disrespectful and sad...hopefully at least the architecture will be preserved.

Doesn't Greece have something like "monument protection"? (Or is Tatoi not considered important enough?)

We basically have "get as much money as you can" attitude and "let's let everything got lost and forgotten because we don't bother enough" attitude - and that goes for the majority of our governments since 1974 (after dictatorship ended).
Is beyond me why a historical place should be turned into a spa.
it's not we have other 5 palaces as museums so it won't be that bad if one palace will be used diferrentely. We don't have any other palace (apart from our current parliament).

This reminds me a bit of the communists and what they did to holy places, castles...to wipe out history.

The government here seems to have kind of the same problem. I wonder why. I don't think Greeks are seriously campaigning for the monarchy to return. So this kind of fear (which it is and also ridiculing the past) is totally misplaced.
