Life of the high-rank Russian aristocracy was crushed by the 1917 revolution. We have the unique opportunity to visit the noble mansion where this bygone time is carefully preserved. Yusupov palace on the Moyka river embankment in St Petersburg is one of the top architectural highlights in Russia. The Yusupovs were the princely family which was very close to the Imperial Romanovs house.

During the highlight tour of the palace you are going to see the main things the Yusupovs were famous for. The gala halls, designed to host the great balls and receptions, illustrate the court life. Rumor had it that Yusupovs were wealthier than the royalty. The princes could afford to invest their money into culture.
Works of art, collected by the Yusupovs, were considered to be among the best art collections in St Petersburg. The palace theater is a true masterpiece of arrchitecture. Meanwhile, the private rooms, which belonged to the Prince and Princess Yussupov, give us the idea of everyday world of the nobility.
Involved in all court intrigues, the Yusupovs stood at the center of the famous murder plot aimed at the last imperial favorite Gregory Rasputin. Rasputin’s murder happened in the palace in 1916.
