Yusupov Palace on Moika in Saint Petersburg, a guided tour
The palace’s exhibition area has its famous interiors: staterooms, sitting rooms (including the famous Mavritan room), a home theatre.
And, of course, it is worth visiting the exhibition area in the basement of the palace, which reconstructs the premeditated murder of Grigoriy Rasputin in 1916, an event still shrouded in legend today. Is he person behind the throne of Nicholas II, because of whom the country fell apart, or a holy elder? There is no proof for either point of view.
The palace is located in the vicinity of Saint Isaac’s Cathedral, so we propose visiting them both successively.
