About
The Yusupov Palace is a unique architectural ensemble of styles from the XVIII to XX century. Cultural monument acclaimed as an "encyclopedia" of St. Petersburg aristocratic interiors. The palace and manor complex were built over two centuries and features the work of prominent Russian and foreign architects. Today the Yusupov Palace is one of the few aristocratic mansions where you can experience ambiance of luxurious life of the Yusupov family. The astonishingly beautiful interiors, restored with the work and talent of St. Petersburg's restoration artists, welcome everyone.

Very beautiful palace, kept in it's original way and gives you a good feeling how the rich were living around 1900. Audioguide available in English.

Located next to a nice canal, with a beautiful garden. The palace has some nice rooms, unfortunately the furniture is not my cup of tea. However it is interesting to visit. Please pet that the room where Rasputin was killed can only be visited when you join a guided tour.

Lovely Palace and the killing place of Rasputin

This place is so different as it's a working building, there are people working the building or the state and this makes it very eerie, and you can feel some tension. the building is so big and the concert hall inside in amazing, then the spiral staircase to the room where Rasputin was killed and the staircase, he climbed up to escape to the river is fascinating. Very surreal.

An amazing tour of the Yusupov Palace and highly recommended. Not much to look at from the outside but once inside there is much to see. The place where Rasputin was assassinated, a bling theatre, an amazing musical room with superb acoustics as evidenced by some beautiful a capella singing and so much more.

Built in the 18th century for Russian nobility.

A grand building, with fabulous interiors, but, the real reason it is famous is because of an incident that took place here in late 1916. The Russian mystic Rasputin was murdered here, by Prince Felix Yusupov and two others. The rooms involved in the deed are the highlight of any tour of the palace. If you love history, this is a must-see in St. Petersburg. Also, if you love palaces. But, if neither history nor grand palaces excite you, give this place a miss, and spend more time in seeing the rest of this glorious city! I was on a conducted tour, so I had no choice! People with strollers will have a tough time, there are some narrow spaces to negotiate.

The visit to Yusupov Palace was as part of our 2 day Alla Tour during our cruise of the Baltic. The palace was the former private residence of one of the richest families of Russia of that time. The interior is beautifully designed. The Rasputin Exposition made of wax depicts his murder in the palace in 1916. Very interesting history!

This palace had many owners and was rebuilt many times. In 1830 it was bought by Mikołaj Jusupow, who was its owner until 1917. Five generations of Jusupov lived in the palace, so the palace bears theirs name, although it was one of the 57 Russian palaces that belonged to the family. Stunning interiors in terms of beauty, materials and design. All this splendor was almost completely preserved in the form in which the Jusupovs left him in 1917. Fortunately the palace was not looted . The palace is known to St. Petersburg as the place where the murder of Grigory Rasputin took place. A must visit in St. Petersburg for people who value history and love interiors. If you want to see a piece of pre-revolutionary Russia, be sure to come here. A wonderful place to get aesthetic pleasure.

Our first Palace on our trip and the history behind it's preservation enables us to have an understanding of the sheer wealth of the owners. I can only add to the other comments on here about the splendor of the interior and the saying 'money buys anything'
