Come along with us to discover some of the world’s greatest travel secrets. The most magnificent palaces in the world are not in England, France, or Italy. They are in one country and built by just one family. Join Professor Barry Goldsmith as he takes us on a very special tour: “Secrets and Palaces of the Romanovs.” We will visit palaces that re-define the word, “spectacular.”
We could visit France to see French Palaces, visit Italy to see Italian Palaces or we can see them both with Professor Goldsmith’s next lecture in just one city, St. Petersburg, built by French and Italian architects. Seeing as Prof. Goldsmith is considered an expert on Romanov Palaces, even by the Romanovs, we will visit palaces that are off-limits.
So while museums are waiting for tours to resume, Prof. Goldsmith will open doors for us to unknown palaces, even off-limits to tourists, on the road to the world’s most spectacular palace, Peterhof, just for Temple Emanu-El. Every Romanov Palace tells a story, and like Downton Abbey, Romanov Palaces have intrigue, clandestine liaisons, and even the ultimate sin… murder.
Register no later than 5:00 PM on Tuesday, April 20th to receive the link for the webinar. The Zoom link for this event will be sent out the day before and as a reminder the day of the webinar.

About the Series: Passport to the World with Barry Goldsmith
While we are waiting for travel to open up– Professor Barry Goldsmith will open up his world of great sites around the globe that you probably never heard of – but after his lecture will want to visit. Barry Goldsmith is proud to be bringing to Temple Emanu-El all three of his unique endeavors – travel, humor and Jewish architecture.
“Been There, HAVEN’T Done That” is based on Prof. Goldsmith’s travel column now in its 11th year of recommending sites around the world unknown to most tourists – and even unknown to many natives. Prof. Goldsmith will guide you to unknown sites in the world’s most famous cities (including New York) and unknown sites in unknown cities between them (such as Emilia Romagna – Italy’s region that is between overcrowded Florence and Venice).
Prof. Goldsmith’s career spans travel and culture — lecturing at museums from the Smithsonian to the Hermitage, embassies — as well lecturing at travel shows around the world — about the world. Prof. Goldsmith leads press trips around the world for hotel, airlines and government tourist boards.
Realizing that the world needs humor during these trying times – Prof. Goldsmith has returned to his television comedy roots appearing on national television every week on cable TV’s “Liquid Lunch” — summing up the week’s events with humor on his weekly segment, “Funny Fridays.” “Been There, HAVEN’T Done That” is also Prof. Goldsmith’s travel and culture radio show, is on “vacation” during the pandemic.
