We visited Yusupov the first day of our 7 days in STPB because it was near our hotel. This palace gives great context to just how phenomenal the wealth of the nobility was in the founding classes of the 18th and 19th centuries when the city was built, and why the enormous gaping chasm between the upper and working /...

This is where Rasputen wa murdered. We were taking into the basement where it happened and it is set up as it was with wax figures. Our guide explained the history behind the murder. Fascinating tour which was a highlight for us.

Our tour was guided and the guide was very knowledgeable which helped a lot. The rooms are beautifully restored and furnished with pieces from around Russia as during the revolution most of the interior was looted. The tour was very comprehensive and a surprise to us was the fact that Rasputin met his end here. Very impressed with the level... More

I was a bit underwhelmed having seen the splendour of the Summer Palace. My husband enjoyed the history and place of Rasputins murder. For me this wasn't top of the list.

Uncontrolled crowds surge from room to room with guides trying to outshout each other in a variety of languages from around the world. My advise is to go to less touristy site unless you are travelling in the off season.

Beautiful place that belonged to the richest Russian family. Enjoy Italian furniture and artwork, french lighting and beautiful upholstery. Loved the performance in the theater. Go and see how Russians used to roll:))

This palace is very different than others in St. Petersburg in that it was owned by a rich family instead of the royal family. It's a great example of how the aristocracy lived in the 19th century. The palace is also the site of where Rassmusen was assassinated at the onset of the revolution. There's even a wax figure display... More

The private theater and Arabian room are beautiful. The multiple stories of Rasputin's life and death are shared. Who knew there were so many versions!
