Embark on a private tour of St Petersburg's Yusupov Palace, where Russian conspirators poisoned and shot the mystical faith healer, Grigory Rasputin. Explore the 19th-century palace—the city center's last remaining resident mansion—and learn about the wealthy family who lived here, including Prince Felix Yusupov, who led the Rasputin assassination plot. Marvel at unique interiors like the Moorish Drawing Room and the tapestry drawing-room, then descend into the cellar to hear the story of Rasputin's final hours and how this close confidant of Tsar Nicholas II simply refused to die.

Rasputin ruins it! The fascination with Rasputin draws large crowds. As a consequence the palace is packed with tourists and tour guides shouting to be heard over one another in a variety of languages. It is also hard to see, et alone enjoy, what is obviously and interesting palace. If you do go I suggested the off season is the best if you don't like throngs of tourists snapping selfies!
