with the wax figures and pictures, you can imagine how Rasputin came to very influential during the Romanov era. There was a steep, very narrow stair. Rooms were quite small and dark.

This unique noble palace follows the different styles and trends in Russian architecture over the course of two centuries. The Yusupov Palace boasts 180 sumptuously furnished rooms, and houses the private art collection of the Yusupov family. It was here that Grigori Rasputin was assassinated in 1916, a waxwork tableau in the cellar recreates the scene of his murder.

Our Princess Cruise Tour brought our group to this palace after our tour of Peterhof. We were taken downstairs where to the room where the murder took place which was an interesting start to the palace tour. The killer was Felix Yusupov from the family that owned this large palace home and part of a group that wanted Rasputin's influence... More

The theatre is extraordinary. Shame the presentation for the Rasputin tour is not available other than in Russian (subtitles or a printed translation would be really helpful). There is an audioguide in different languages for the rest of the tour though the French is a better commentary than the English.

Very rich stair-case and richly decorated rooms and hall. Its main fame it obtaineddue to the site where the priest Rasputin was murdered at the basement by Felix Yusupov and others.

This is a beautiful palace and quite differently opulent in comparison to that of the royalty. We were guided through and thoroughly enjoyed the tale of Rasputin, and we were rather hastily walked through the halls. Then we were ushered to the family theatre and enjoyed a little concert with superb acoustics considering the time the theatre was built. I... More

After a few days visiting various palaces we thought we'd seen it all but this place is something special. Hard to imagine that only a small family lived here (with an army of 200 servants). Despite all the fantastic riches on display we really loved the Rasputin exhibit in the basement. The theatre is as opulent as the rest of... More

This place is not so known among St. Petersburg visitors. Still it is worth for visit, absolutely. Here you can really see how an aristocratic family lived far over 100 years ago. Just War and Peace spirit. Still the service and organizational skills are just from Soviet time. A big mess. We didn´t take part of Rasputin tour.

This palace was absolutely beautiful. If you stay until 5 pm there is a tv documentary on Rasputin's murder which took place here and afterwards you go to the room where the murder took place, set out with wax work figures. It is eerie walking down the steps to the underground room, knowing Rasputin crawled up them glaring at his... More

I enjoyed visiting here a lot as it was much quieter than any of our other visits. It is also such an eclectic mixture of styles, but still very opulent. It's interiors are very well preserved. The highlights are the moorish fountain room with echoes of the Alhambra style decor and the theatre. Felix the last Yusopov to live here... More
