After travelling about 10 times to St Petersburg I wanted to see a real palace style luxury. Visiting Yusupov Palace didn't disappoint me as it was all I expected and even more! The renovations done in the palace are very good and the luxurious life of the Yusupov family can still be senced when observing all the rooms. The audio... More

Not just a lavish palace museum but also the site of Rasputin's murder! But note that the Palace and Rasputin's basement are separately run. Tours into the doomed cellar are open to the public after 6pm and tickets are separate. Worth checking it out!

Another amazing well-preserved but not crowded palace. Has some uniquely decorated interiors. Unfortunatelly, some rooms are accessed only on separate tickets, which are rather expensive - compared to main exhibit, use visit much less for are much highly price. There is a free for entry palace garden, too.

This is one of the most beautiful and the most interesting museums of St. Petersburg, which kept own collections and apartments in its original form. For lovers of art it will be interesting to admire a fine collection of paintings by Russian and foreign artists, as well as the wonderful interior of the palace. In the palace there are hold...

Amazing walk thru tour of Palace. Nice that it had free headset in many languages to tell story of each room.

If you're a vapid interior design sort of person, go here to get told about fabrics and pseudo baroque styles again and again, room after room. If you are interested in seeing the place where Rasputin was killed, you will find no information. The audio guide gives nothing to the reason most people would go here - to hear about... More

If you are interested in Russian and St Petersburg history, this is a very good place to learn about it via the history and the Story of the aristocratic family of the Yusupovs. A fantastic palace, large, grand, Impressionen, with its own theatre etc. highly to recommand!!!

Now this palace can get very busy, but this is where our Russian hosts outdid themselves. The tours are run like clockwork, so you get just enough time to have a good look around each room, whilst not bumping into another tour group. There isn't a huge amount of art and furniture in every room although most rooms are furnished.... More

Fans of War and Peace will recognise some of this beautiful little Palace We were treated to 3 male acapello singers in the theatre which was an unexpected surprise! Rasputin was murdered here so we learnt more about him and his relationship with the royal family. We were there for a good couple of hours with a pre arranged guide... More

Stunning architecture, an entire theatre inside, some beautiful artworks. too bad that most of the descriptions are in Russian only and that the rasputin's dedicated part of the visit was only in Russian. Ticket office outside of the premises.
