The Murder of Grigori Rasputin

The exhibition is extremely popular among tourists. The historians are still arguing about this mysterious crime and the stir among the public still remains very high. The final part of our excursion is devoted to the tragic events of December 16-17, 1916.

It was then that in the chambers of this magnificent Palace the life of the favorite of the Imperial family Grigory Rasputin ended terribly. Historical interiors, wax figures of the noble conspirators and their victims, documentary evidence, photographs - all these precisely convey the atmosphere of that fateful night. Due to the extraordinary popularity, it is particularly difficult to visit this exhibition during high season.
