An unforgettable tour along the official halls and private chambers of Yusupov palace.


During the tour we will discover incredible Yusupov palace. The Yusupov family was one of the richest noble families in Russia. Their palace in the historical centre of St. Petersburg was the most beautiful private residence of the city and now it is an amazing museum. During the tour you will walk along breathtaking reception rooms, will see the famous ball room and will be overwhelmed by the interior of a private theatre. Of cause the main interiors are stunning but the purpose of the tour is to show you not only official but also an everyday life in Yusupov palace. I will invite you to private chambers of the family. You will see bedrooms, very elegant private studies, library, even the billiard room and swimming pool.
Yusupov palace hides behind its beauty tragic and mysterious story of the murder of Grigory Rasputin. I will share with you the role Rasputin played in Russian history of early XX century and the reason why Felix Yusupov thought that his murdercould save Russia from the catastrophe.
