I was really impressed with the palace. Luxury interiors, each room is different from the other one and the palace in general is absolutely different from others in St. Petersburg. I would highly recommend visiting it. We have bought tickets in the palace counter and had group excursion in Russian. The guide was amazing and had a super interesting manner... More

Our group split into two for this wonderful 'house'. The history connected with it - Rasputin was assasinated here - was fascinating. Mind you they didn't quite finish him off here, so the story was interesting. The rooms and the private theatre are just beautiful - again the floors were magnificent. And the A Capella singing on the way round... More

We were looking for the Rasputin tour, but by the time we get to the palace ( 40 min before the tour) all the tickets were sold. Next time buy the tickets at 10-45 they said. Nice, but what if you have only one day of stay? No information about the tickets on the web site at least in English.... More

But you need a guide. There is so much history that unless you know about it you will not be able to take this all in. This was not crowded at when we were there in October but I heard from the guide that this is quite crowded with Russians in the busier months (summer). The whole story of Rasputin... More

The palace is very nice, particularly the theatre. However, the experience was ruined by the extremely rude staff selling the tickets. Today it was the third time I attempted to buy tickets at 1:30 pm to see the exhibition about Rasputin, only to be told "Finished!!!". They could take two minutes to explain how to actually see it if you... More

From the street entrance this place does not seem very imposing. A former private residnece of one of the richest families in Russia. The rooms are less ornate than in other palaces but the theatre is palatial and unexpected. The palace is now more famous as the place where Rasputin was murdered and illustrates this with excellent wax work tableaux.

You can find all the luxury of the past Russian princes and princesses here. Check out especially the Moor room and the home theater of the past.

Take a few hours out of your day to visit this place. Beautiful and well maintained, you step right back into the past when you enter; The infamous Rasputin was... More

Not as impressive as the bigger palaces but interesting because of the family history and the private theatre is a must
