Evening, Lingvo Live experts.
I`d like to remind you that the current game score is 5-0 in your favor. Our virtual TV audience is panicking, because here`s the 6th question that well may be the last in this game. And here it goes!
[It is known that many Russian princely families are of Tatar origin.
The Emperor Paul I once asked the count Rostopchin:
- Are all the Rostopchins in fact of Tatar origin?
- Exactly so, m`lord - responded Rostopchin.
- Why then are you not the princes (the dukes)?
- That is because my ancestor moved to Russia in the winter. In summer, the Tsars would bestow the eminent Tatars princely dignity...
And what, according to Rostopchin, would the Tsars bestow the Tatars that would come in winter?]

ROUND 3 and Good luck!
Oddly enough these two characters have a lot in common. They both have italian roots. Their middle names would have been the same if, of course, there were any. Yet their relations with Russia have developed differently. The visit to Russia brought to one of them eventually nothing but trouble, though initially everything was going in his favor. The second one is not only well known in Russia to everybody from young to old alike, but was basically born here.
Who are these characters?

Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen!
We are here to start our Autumn Series of "Что?Где?Когда?" games. Lingvo Online experts will be facing the (virtual) TV audience. Here below you will be given a question, answers on which you should write in the commentary section.
A tiny bit about the rules:
*1 - It is advisable that you do not use any kind of infomation source (including internet and encyclopedia-like books), but your own knowledge, intuition and the help of your friends. Thus it makes the game more interesting.
*2 You will be given 6 hours time to figure out the correct answer. You will be able to see the timemark in the very end of the post (of the note).
*3 For the answers, please, use English.
Good luck and off you go!

Добрый вечер, дамы и господа!
Абсолютно всем известно такое телевизионное шоу как "Что?Где?Когда?". Мне очень нравится эта игра и, в связи с этим, хочу поинтересоваться, нравится ли она вам? Если да, то я буду иногда выкладывать вопросы, на которые нужно будет дать правильный ответ и, соответственно, победить. Можно будет даже
"растянуть" одну игру на несколько дней. Знатоки "Lingvo Online" против виртуальных телезрителей.
Хотелось бы почитать ваши мнения. Спасибо.
Guten Abend, meine Damen und Herren!
Wir alle wissen, was ein Stau ist and wir wissen doch auch, wie peinlich es ist, in einen Stau zu geraten und da drüben stundenlang stehen. Heutzutage ist dieses Thema durchaus aktuell.
Was kommt aber vor, wenn man auf dieses Problem wohl von anderer Seite anschaut? Was POSITIVES können die Staus in unser Leben bringen?
