Another highlight is a guided visit to the Yusupov Palace, that features exclusive interiors and wax figures of Grigori Rasputin and members of the conspiracy.
Experience the city’s highlights on a pleasant guided drive around St. Petersburg. View the sights that made St. Petersburg famous the world over.
This tour is an overview of the Russian History from the Red October revolution through the Cold War all the way up to the collapse of the Soviet Union and perestroika. One of the stops is a visit to the former famous ballerina Kshesinskaya Mansion that was occupied by the Bolsheviks in 1917. Now it houses the Museum of Political Historypacked with unique artifacts related to the history of the Soviet Union: mock up of the communal apartment and workers barracks, Lenin`s study, uniforms and much more.
Another stop is at the Yusupov’s Palace,a museum which provides an interesting look at the lives of the aristocracy of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
