This place pales in comparison to the others somewhat. But that is only in relativity. Has a cool story and a great spot on the Tiver. As Chaz Palminteri once said: “make him disappear”

The Yusupov's had more wealth then the Romanovs. This is where Rasputin was murdered. I believe you need a guided tour to go to the basement where there is a wax figure of Rasputin and Felix Yusupov engaged in a dinner. Memorable.

Beautiful old palace packed with history. Take a step back and see how the Russian nobility lived life. Saw the room that Rasputin life ended when he was poisoned and later shot. Worth the time to check out
