Usupovs who owned this palace since 1830 probably never thought what would make their home so popular among tourists. The majority of visitors come to see the place of assassination of Gregory Rasputin but suddenly learn about tragedy of Nicolas II family, about sufferings of his wife Alix and her search of divine power that can help to cure her...

Not very impressive from the outside but the original interior are stunning and well kept. The history of the palace is very interesting. Rasputin was killed here and there is a display in the downstairs rooms about the conspiracy to kill him. This palace is one of 5 that the Yusupov family had

This is where Rasputin was killed and it is very haunting to hear the story and to see where he died. The palace is also very beautiful to see.

This restored palace tells the tale of the poisoning, shooting and drowning of Rasputin. However, I suggest you read up the story before visiting, as it was assumed by our guide that everyone knew about the evil Rasputin, but some in our group were unfamiliar with the details of the downfall of the Tsar.

Cameras are welcome at a small price and it is definitely worth it. All the rooms have been beautifully restored and any refurbs have been in-keeping with the rest of the building and decor. There is so much information spread between the rooms about what teh rooms were used for and who would have used them. We were allowed private... More

Just one of the five palaces the Yusupov family had. Doesn't look special from the outside but is inside. Rasputin was killed here and you can se the rooms the conspirators sat in and waited for him. Some most interesting pictures etc of Rasputin. Not to be missed.

Very interesting and beautifully decorated. Rasputin experience is around one oclock and not included with ticket. If you are not on a guided tour you must have an audio guide - this is provided in various languages including English. The audio guide is free but you must give 1000 rubles deposit for each one - this is returned to you... More

This palace is very interesting because of its notorious history and its elegant rooms, including an ornate gold and red private theatre, which is beautiful. The male choir was an added bonus. There are wide staircases, chandeliers etc and It was fascinating down in the basement where Rasputin was murdered. The life sized models bring the gruesome story to life.

This palace is famous not because it is an architectonic jewel, but because it is here where conspirators lured the monk Rasputin, who held strong influence over the last of Russia's Czars wife, to murder him. The Palace is an elegant mansion, but the main attraction are the rooms where Rasputin's murderers had set up their conspiracy. Life-sized mannequins of... More
