I went to the Yusupov Palace on my last day in St. Petersburg and it was the perfect end to a wonderful trip. I rented the audio guide and learned a great deal about how the wealthy Russians lived during the late 1800's and early 1900's. So much grandeur and enormous rooms filled with art and fine furniture. So glad... More

Discovered this gem of a palace only on my about tenth visit to St. Petersburg and I feel ashamed. It's gorgeous! Beautiful rooms with wonderful decorations and the amazing theatre. The only downside is the fact that the ticket office is actually outside the palace, it might be a bid difficult to find for foreign tourists. Oh and fantastic gift... More

If one knows or wants to know Russian history, it is a place to see and learn Read about Yusupov and Rasputin first if one is not familiar about them

In every room of the palace you will feel the opulence of the Yusupov family: golds, marbles, paintings, inlaid woods, furniture, room after room, corridor after corridor until the private theater still in use. The large dining room with the columns was closed due to ongoing refurbishments.

Definitely a must see! The splendor and richness of the palace rivals that of the Hermitage. Yusupov Palace has so many beautiful rooms and there is a theater where the family hosted plays and concerts.

Take a tour around the palace and you'll see why the Yusupov family was one of the richest in Europe. Incredibly beautiful place.

Scene of the assassination of Rasputin this delightful Palace tour includes the very pretty family theatre with only 180 seats. There is also a small concert hall where there are frequently live performers. The Place probably has the best quality gift-shop in St Petersburg.

This vile, corrupt institution lets dozens of people stand in the cold as they let one tour bus after another in front of you. I waited an hour two days in a row in freezing cold weather. They should be ashamed of themselves.
