We toured this on our second day in St. Petersburg. Fascinating to see how the rich/non-royals lived. It is a beautifully preserved place. Make sure you get the ticket to allow you to take pictures. The only negative was the local docent who took off my head because I dared to take a picture in the anteroom to the theater. It had said "No Pictures in the Theatre". Since we weren't in the theater yet, I didn't think it was an issue. This gorgon was then going to report our tour guide and have her license taken away for allowing me to take a picture. The ironic thing was that when you went into the theater, there was no local guide...and everyone was taking pictures. "Ms. Large and In-Charge" was just wanting to throw her "considerable" weight around outside the theater.

We took a bus tour in St. Petersburg and visited Yusupov Palace. It was of course, big, beautiful and very ornate. Russia was experiencing a hot day and we boiled in the palace as there was no ventilation or air conditioning and so it wasn't as pleasant for us to visit as it might have been.

An extremely interesting palace - well worth visiting (with a guide if possible).

From outside, the palace doesn't look that impressive, but once inside you see a different picture.

Rooms are decorated with magnificent chandeliers, silk covered walls, all reflecting the wealth of the Yusupov family. The furnishings are superb.

The private theatre, exquisitely decorated, is not to be missed.

This palace is beautiful with an amazing private theatre. You could really feel the history. The Rasputin story is told with the aid of waxworks and in the dim light in the basement the figure of Rasputin is quite eerie and not as cheesy as I expected.

This is where Rasputin the so called Mad Monk was killed. However after listening to our guide it became clear that he was not as mad as we were led to believe in our school history, and in fact tried to help Catherine with her young sons disease but was not sucesssful.
