Evening at the Yusupov Palace

(Display “Assassination of Grigori Rasputin”)
Вернуться к категориям

Over a century has passed since the night of December 1916, when Grigori Rasputin was murdered in Private Rooms of Prince Felix in Yusupov Palace on the Moika River.

We invite you to immerse into the atmosphere of this mysterious and tragic event of the Russian history of the early 20th century and take part in a special programme “Evening at the Yusupov Palace...”.

During this unguided tour you will visit “garçonnière” rooms of the Palace, where the assassination took place, see photographs and documents that help to answer some questions about the personality of the Siberian “elder” Grigori Rasputin.

The tour starts from the Small Dancing Hall, where you will see a film “Memory of the Place”, telling the story about participants and circumstances of the event. You will pass through the Small Lobby and extraordinary Mirror Octahedron—like the conspirators during that tragic night—and proceed into Prince Felix’s Office. Having descended the perfectly preserved wooden stairs, you will see the Basement Dining Room, the venue of the drama unfolding against the backdrop of the “gloomy Middle Ages”. Further, in the adjacent premises, which used to be the Waiter’s Room, you will get acquainted with materials on the murder investigation, including the consequences and theories of the crime. Finally, you will watch the excerpts from an interview with Felix Yusupov, shot for the movie “I Killed Rasputin”, and a fragment of the BBC TV film about the “British footprint” of those terrible days...

The final line in this crime is yet to draw. This mystery boosts attractiveness of a place associated with it...

The programme includes only the unguided visit of the display “Assassination of Grigori Rasputin”.
