From the beginning of the 19th Century the building belonged to one of the richest Russian families at that time. It is one of the few aristocratic homes in the city to have retained many of its original interiors. After the October Revolution, the Palace was handed to the educational authorities, which fortunately opted to preserve many of the original interiors and used the building as a type of clubhouse for the city's teachers.
But the Palace is perhaps most famous as the scene of the assassination of Grigori Rasputin. The legends surrounding Rasputin's murder, which took place in the basement of the Yusupov Palace on 16 December 1916, are mostly based on the sensationalist account in the autobiography of Prince Felix Yusupov, who claimed to have led the plotters in first poisoning, then shooting, then beating Rasputin. There is now a display in the Palace Museum that uses photography, documents and wax figures to recreate the assassination and the following investigation.

During the vodka tour you might see a great amount of different exhibits which are priceless, because they give you the sense of the lives of Russian people through the times. The museum gets you acquainted with vodka history, as well as different aspects of its production line. You will be able not only to hear but also experience Russian traditions during the vodka tasting session.
Please Note: If the Vodka is not to your taste, we can also organise a visit to the Museum of Chocolate and Cacao, the Museum of Russian Desserts or a Russian Caviar Tasting.
