Great tour of what the Palaces were like.

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.

As our guided tour began the following day we were recommended to visit this establishment. Looking back on our trip, it was good for a first palace experience. However, had we already been to other palaces first this could have been a disappontment.

Yusupov Palace is known as the home where its owner, Felix Yusopov, a prince from one of Russia’s wealthiest 19th-century families., led the plot to murder Grigory Rasputin, the distrusted advisor to Russia’s Tsar Nicholas II, in 1916. We visited as part of a tour group and unfortunately were rather hastily walked through the opulent and extravagant rooms. At one... More

The Palace that belonged to the richest man in Russia after the Tsar. It is a great example to see how these people lived, the sheer opulence of it. It is laid out as it was when Prince Yusupov was living there so, it is very different to the Winter Palace which houses the Hermitage Museum. It also has it's... More

This is an incredibly impressive home - how wealthy these people were. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous and the house even has it's own private Theatre with private boxes, orchestra pit and even seats in the gods!! I wandered around imagining what life would have been like back in the early 1700's as a very rich and privileged Russian. I... More
