This beautiful palace was the summer retreat for Russian tsar, Nicolas II and his family. During World War II, the German Army used it while celebrating the completion of the German Crimean Campaign which lasted from 1941 to 1942. It was at this same location in 1945 that the Yalta Conference was held. During the conference the Allied leaders of England, the Soviet Union, and the United States met to discuss the post-WWII fate of Germany. In just 3 years, Germany went from celebration to complete defeat. Today, you can visit the museum at the palace and learn about its past history.
Livadia Palace is just one of several places to visit to learn more about World War II. For a list of our recommended stops and museums, check out Ducwkyn's new World War II European Theater page.

We continue to add more collectible stickers to the Duckwyn Travel Passport. Today, you can visit St. Petersburg in Russia to add this new sticker.
St. Petersburg has gone through a few name changes throughout its 300 years of history. It was known as Petrograd from 1914 to 1924 and Leningrad from 1924 to 1991). The city was founded by Tsar Peter the Great in 1703. Named after the apostle Saint Peter, the city served as the capital of Russia from 1713 to 1918. The city's center and monuments are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It's also home to the Hermitage, one of the largest art museums in the world (Wikipedia).

The Eagle's Nest in Germany becomes the 213th destination to be added to the Duckwyn Travel Passport. Located high in the mountains of Germany, the Eagle's Nest is a popular destination for tourists and people who love World War II history. Hitler, however, didn't love the location. His fear of heights, the opportunity for bad weather, and the thin mountain air led to his dislike (Wikipedia). He did end up going there on at least 14 occasions when he wanted to entertain and impress guest. The house survived an Allied bombing raid on 25 April 1945. It was captured by the Allies a few days later on the 4 May.
The best time to visit is during the warmer months when there isn't a risk of snow closing the road. There is a restaurant and beer garden located at the site.
