See some of the most lavish 19th-century interiors in the city at Yusupovskiy Palace on Sadovaya, also famous as the scene of Grigory Rasputin's assassination. Join a guided tour that takes you through reception rooms and living quarters of the former owner, the extravagant Prince Felix Yusupov, who at the time was the wealthiest man in Russia. Note the different styles of decor in the interiors, embellished with frescoes, tapestries, gilded chandeliers, and period furniture. Do not miss the Rococo private theater on the second floor, which hosts classical concerts and theater performances. In the basement, you'll find a reconstruction of Rasputin's murder and its investigation using photography, documents, and wax figures. The Rasputin tour must be arranged in advance.
