Description

Private Guided Tour to one of two surviving St. Petersburg residences of the monumentally wealthy Yusupov family, the Yusupov Palace on the Moika River is perhaps most famous as the scene of the assassination of Grigory Rasputin, and is one of the few aristocratic homes in the city to have retained many of its original interiors. This tour and the professional guide will take you back in history of Saint-Petersburg.

The tour starts at the lobby of your Hotel where the guide and driver meet you. Together you get to spectacular Yusupov Palace. You easily get inside not waiting in a line. Excursion begins on the 2nd floor, which features an amazing ballroom (the White Column Room), banquet hall, the delightful Green Drawing Room and the ornate rococo private theatre. The tour continues on the ground floor, where you will see the fabulous Turkish Study (used by Felix as a billiards room), the Prince's study and the Moorish Drawing Room, among many other rooms. Then you will see the room where Rasputin’s murder began and the guide will reveal the mystery over  the Grigory Rasputin life and death. After the tour you will be offered to have a lunch/dinner in a very nice restaurant serving delicious Russian food (optional) and then you will be taken back to the Hotel or any other desired destination in the city center.
