We are happy to greet you in the Yusupov Palace on the Moika River
This Palace Ensemble, widely known in Europe and bearing the status of a "building of federal significance" in Russia, once belonged to a princely family. Later, it housed a Museum of the Nobility Lifestyle, Regional Teacher's House and St. Petersburg Palace of Culture for Educators. During the two and a half centuries, the purpose and status of this classic mansion and urban estate on the Moika River have repeatedly changed.
Today, this grandeur building (one of the most prominent architectural gems of the Russian "Northern capital") hosts government and diplomatic meetings, international conferences and symposia. The names of many Russian public officials, leaders of St. Petersburg and heads of foreign states are recorded in the Yusupov Palace Guest Book.
