House of Yusupov: Inside the Moika Palace in Saint-Petersburg

House of Yusupov: Inside the Moika Palace in Saint-Petersburg

Almost 30 halls with dazzling interiors, the best furnishings of different epochs, and allure of the pre-revolutionary bourgeoisie; all this is the gorgeous Moika Palace (also known as Yusupov Palace) in Saint-Petersburg, Russia.

Being built in 1770 this palace, wonderful and the same time tragic (a basement of the building was the place of Grigori Rasputin’s murder in 1916), now attracts a lot of tourists from all across the world. And, if you can’t visit it personally, we suggest to take a virtual trip around the Moika Palace. Here are 65 beautiful photos from inside the house.
