Yusupov Palace On Moika, Saint Petersburg Reviews
Wow wow wow and WOW. Very interesting family history. The story of Rasmussen and his death was front and center. The oppulance is astounding. After seeing this palace, it's no wonder the the Great October Revolution happened. This family was in the top 1%. Ridiculous wealth!! Down with the aristocracy everywhere in the world!
A very interesting slice of old 19th century Russian aristocracy. You can feel spirit of both epochs: old imperial and Soviet. The latter one through splinters of the first. Good audio guide. Probably restoration could be better
Great visit to a museum in the palace that belonged to the richest family in Russia before the Revolution. Also infamous as the place where Rasputin was assassinated (they have thematic tours every afternoon about it, but there are limited tickets and it's only in Russian). You can enter with a tour, with an audioguide (2000 rubles deposit required), or to see a concert.
A lovely palace with some beautifully decorated rooms, there is a very good audio guide available in multiple languages and unlike most audio guides this one doesn't drone on for too long or hinder your progress through the museum. The Yusupov palace was much quieter than some of the other palaces we visited which was a nice change as if you time it right you can avoid all the large cruise tour groups. Some areas were closed for refurbishment whilst we were there and the art gallery exhibit was still being finished however.
Incredible history. Do it with a good tour guide. Great opulence and grandeur!
