Follow the spirit of Rasputin into his apartment and death place in this mystic, scary tour
Are you brave or are you afraid of the dark? Can you imagine how mystic the city is and how many secrets it keeps? In this tour I will try to reveal some of them for you.
The main figure in our tour is Grigory Rasputin, one of the most uncertain and mystic figures in Russian history. We will firstly see his apartment and feel his spirit. Then, we will visit an exposition the "Mysteries of Saint-Petersburg" show to feel the scares and hopes of the people of that times. There you will become part of an action, a novel or even a murder. . .
After that we will continue our tour to Jusupov Palace. The beautiful interiors of the first and second floors will calm you down a bit until you reach Rasputin's death place. Yes, he was attacked in that very beautiful palace!
Rasputin was a real ladies' man, his strong energy making any woman fall in love with him, even someone else's wife.
The logical conclusion of our day will be the popular entertainment of the past- either a Cabaret show or a theater play.
!NOTE! The itinerary is estimate. In case any museum is fully booked or closed (that is not usual to happen) it will be replaced by another (very interesting) one. If you want to add or discard something in the tour please feel free to message me, I'll make a custom tour for you.
