Situated in an attractive art nouveau mansion, the building was seized by the Bolsheviks and used as their headquarters in 1917. Formerly The Museum of the Revolution, the collection was renamed and reinterpreted in the mid 1990s and now covers the period from Catherine the Great to the present day.

Famous as the scene of the murder of Rasputin by Count Yusupov, its sumptuous rooms give a vivid insight into the lifestyles of the aristocracy prior to the Revolution.

Situated out of the city, Catherine Palace was the summer residence for the Russian Tsars.

A small but moving museum opened in 1989 and replacing one destroyed at Stalin’s orders in the post-war purges. It tells the story of the 900 day siege and is in part a memorial to the 700,000 civilian dead.
