Discover the Russian noblemen's life and the most misterious story of Rasputin's murder.

Yusupov Palace is an oustanding architectural ensemble of 18th-20th centuries and a cultural and heritage site acclaimed as the "Encyclopedia" of St. Petersburg aristocratic interior. The history of the Palace dates back to Peter the Great's epoch, the time of foundation of the Russian "Northern capital." It took almost two centuries to build the estate. Five succeeding generations of the Yusupov princely dynasty owned the estate and the Palace from 1830 to 1917. Many glorious moments of Russian and St. Petersburg history are associated with the residence of the Yusupov family on the Moika River. The Palace went down in Russian history as the place where Grigory Rasputin, a Siberian peasant, mystical spiritual mentor and friend of the family of Emperor Nicholas II was assassinated. The tragedy unfolded on the night of December 17, 1916 in the Living quarters of the young Prince Felix Yusupov. Today these rooms house a display of historic pictures and documents. The tour around the Palace includes "Assassination of Grigory Rasputin" exhibition.
