Yusupov Palace
On the banks of the Moika River, the Yusupov Palace is one of two pre–Revolutionary palaces owned by the same immensely wealthy and important family. The Yusupov Palace is perhaps most famous as the site of the murder of the "mad monk" Rasputin, who had a powerful influence on Nicholas II’s wife Alexandra and other figures of St. Petersburg society. The palace’s interiors were fortunately preserved even after the Revolution thanks to its use by the Soviets as a center for teachers.
