We arrived on a Wednesday night around 5:30 to discover that the Rasputin basement room was only open F-M (5:00 - 6:30). I had done a lot of research and talked with our hotel's concierge and was still surprised by this. (Their Russian only website doesn't help.) Plan accordingly if you're hoping to see the Rasputin area, and then double... More

This was the home of the Yusupov Family, close friends of the Romanov Czar Nicholas. Located on. Quiet stretch of the Moyka River, it is a wonderful example of 18th Century architecture. The Yusupov lived here between 1830 and 1917 and was home to an art collection almost as famous as the royal family. He art has since been scattered... More

Not only was the palace amazing (although initial entry area was the least beautiful part), but the history of the death of Rasputin was fascinating to westerners like us.

Forget the Winter Palace! The Yusupov palace is far more impressive. While the Winter Palace is huge, it is cold and remote with a hodge-podge collection of mediocre European art and statues which cannot match the collections in Europe. The Yusupov is small, intimate and opulent. These folk, after all, were richer than the Romanovs. The Moorish room has intricate... More

This is very interesting if you like Russian history. You visit the room Rasputin was shot in. They have a reenactment in the room. You need to get there early or you may have a long wait. The tour is only 1 to 2 hours.

On a rainy day we visit Yusupov Palace. Because we didn't made a reservation, we couldn't visit the rooms where was killed Rasputin but the palace is a wonderful of taste. I was impress that in every museum I visited the personnel were pensioner, but very stylish and very strong knowledge about that museum. Is a very nice approach for... More

This palace is just the right size to spend one hour reliving the life of a nobleman in the 18th Century. The private theatre is just stunning. Makes modern day media rooms look tame.

It was our second visit to st.peterburg and we went to Yusupov palace since we did not get to visit it on our previous visit to the city. We were really surprised to see a palace as beautiful and impressing as the other palaces around the city with some really special features.

This is a minor building (they call it a palace, Westerners would call it a large house), though once owned by one of pre-Revolution Russia's richest families. Rasputin was mortally wounded here and the guides make a huge deal of that; it's not such a big deal to tourists. None of the furnishings are original. The restoration is good, but... More
