Yusupov Palace On Moika, Saint Petersburg Reviews
Beautiful palace with a lot of different room styles. An audioguide is provided for many different languages, and is very informative. The visit duration was about 1:30. There was even a concert in the ball room while we were there. We enjoyed the palace and would recommend it to other tourists.
It's a beautiful place but some of the areas were closed for restoration and no adjustment to the price! The first room was very dark and no way to see all off the artifacts that were displayed there. Still worth going there just maybe wait till they are done with restoration and make sure that you don't come too late: they close at 5pm. Also a little strange thing that ticket sales are NOT inside the building but outside in the small booth on the left side if you face the entrance.
Beautiful palace with some classical artwork. During my visit the cellar was closed and there was no mention about the fact that Rasputin was killed at this palace's cellar anywhere. The museum staff, like in more than one places, I experienced, might make you feel unwelcome, so try to ignore it. No clear signs that there are rooms in the right of the entrance hall.
I think one of the most impressive palaces in Saint-Petersburg. More than 30 rooms that can be viewed, all decored in different styles. Not only ball rooms, but even an internal theater inside
This is a 5 stars palace in terms of beauty and magnificent architecture, but unfortunately the main tour doesn't mention the basement and the murder of Rasputin. Also it has currently 5 rooms closed due to restoration. Although the ticket is expensive, I do recommend the visit, the rest of the rooms are magnificent. But don't buy in the souvenir store, the same items are half price in many souvenirs stores in the city.
