Very interesting!

It is beautiful inside and out. Also very interesting to hear about its history and its role in the death of Rasputin. Well worth a visit.

This is an interesting bit of Russian history -- the life and death of Rasputin. (or, as the song says: Ra-Ra-Rasputin, lover of the Russian Queen). The tour takes you through the nicely decorated home, through small rooms and corridors. Stick close to your guide if you want to be able to hear because sometimes the whole group won't all... More

This palace doesn't look like much on the outside, but it's beautiful inside. It's not as ornate or spectacular as some of the other palaces in St. Petersburg, but is worth a visit. This is where the plot against Rasputin was carried out, and the guided tour relies heavily on that event. You will see where he was attacked and... More

We signed up for our guided tour specifically because it included Yusupov Palace - many others don't. A non-descript looking building is still a massive palace. It starts out like Haunted Mansion in Disneyland with twisting halls and stairs where you go down to the spot where Rasputin was (presumably) murdered. The guide tells you the story along the way,...

I didn't expect it to be a highlight, especially after seeing the beautiful Hermitage, Catherine's Palace and Peterhof. But this palace showed the lifestyle of a wealthy family. It is also the site of Rasputin's murder. We thought that the wax figure display depicting this event in the downstairs dining room would seem rather amateur, but in fact it was... More

Another wonderful museum to visit, with this one including a few rooms recreating Rasputin's demise in wax figures! Very worthwhile to see and help understand Russia's history. Beautiful rooms and artifacts.

First of all you will need to give up your shoes and wear slippers. The palace is beautiful in features and stained glass. Be sure to visit the downstairs dining room where Rasputin was poisoned.

Entrance to the palace is confused, a single door with attendant ensures that queues are maintained both waiting to get in and to get out. Once you get in it is well worth it. The downstairs historical story of the death of Rasputin, along with effective life size waxworks are extremely effective, evocative and a little scary. The expensive furniture... More

An opulent regal house containing original items of this family. The site of Rasputins murder so of interest. Photography permitted.

Maybe it was the 6 generation story of the family's success, maybe it was the intrigue of the Rasputin plot, or maybe it is because it was so beautifully designed and decorated, or the scale- this was my favorite palace tour of all.
