Title: Palace of the Yusupovs in Moscow
Post by: Greg_King on March 31, 2004, 06:52:45 AM
When I visited the Moscow House (this back in 1992) there was apparently a lot of discussion as to its future-as whatever particular organization that occupied it at the time was in the process of moving out; on my other trips to Russia I never made it back to look at the house, but luckily in 1992 a few dollars got me in for a private tour that I recorded on video.  I have to say that the place is amazing-very atmospheric-I remember shuttered windows and darkened rooms, walls painted with medieval designs, 17th Century leather furniture crowded into corridors-and some of the most intricate porcelain stoves I've ever seen in Russia.  I'd love to go back one day when I have time and really prowl through the place!

Sounds like a great place to explore...but most of the historic palaces and homes would be amazing to be able to spend time in just snooping!  Did you see the tunnel that supposedly had the skeletons in it?   :o

I wondered if anyone has a list of all the Youssoupov Palaces in St Petersburg.  I know of the ones on Moika and  Liteyny Prospect, but I recently saw a map that showed the House of Actors on Nevsky Prospect (86, I believe) as a Youssoupov Palace.  Does anyone have a list of them all.  Even better, does anyone have pictures of them?

At the time of the revolution the Yusupovs had seven residences in Petersburg.

The most famous, the palace on Moika 94 was by far the largest in size, but it wasn´t the most expensive though.

The most expensive was the House in Nevsky 84-86 (I think because of its location), even when it was half the size of the Moika palace.

They had as well mansions on Liteiny 42, Baseinaya 5/5, Semenovsky 84-86, Pochtamskaya 92, and Litovsky 1/36.

Very interesting. Princess Paley still owned the Paris house after the revoltuion, am I right? She either lived there or it helped to sustain her and her daughters after the revoltuion.

Was Felix's inherited palace in Moscow the only Yussupov palace in that city or did his parents have homes there as well?  

I thought now that I have reached as far as I can go with the Romanovs on the Marlborough for the time being, I would like to compile a list of the residences owned by the members of the Imperial Family at the time of the revolution, including the Yussupovs.

Thanks again!

The parents owned the great house that had belonged to Ivan the Terrible and is much discussed in his memoirs.They lived however in a modern wing which had been added in the 1890's.

So the above pictures are from Felix's parent's home in Moscow?

The rooms look very cavernous (closest word I could think of to describe the high ceilings with very few windows-I'm not very architectual) in those pictures.

What would be the schedule of Felix and his parents aka what house in what city at what time of the year. I am going to read over Felix's memoirs after I'm done posting this so forgive me if the answer can be found in there.

Thanks again!

hi to everyone!
i live in moscow but, unfortunately, I'd seen the palace only once, passing it by by car. but a couple of days ago my friends and I decided to look at it one more time an maybe to take a photo of the building. we went there at about 11p.m. we got to the palace and were strolling along the fence. then we saw a plate on it which was telling about the building itself. I was surprised to know that some excursions are held there (at daytime of course). then a watchman appeared and asked us whar we were doing. we were frightened by his words and told him that we were just watching the timetable pf the visits. and then he asked us if we wanted an excursion right then. we were soo excited and went through the gates. theen another man came up and led us into the palace. the normal excursion with 1,30h guide costs 250 rub( about 6,3 euros) each and we payed the same sum. but! the watchman showed us all the rooms, let us sit on the sofas and chairs (the oroginal ones) and let us take photos though it costs extra 100 rubs. of course, his oratorical skills were not high at all, but he managed to tell us some facts about the palace's life.
we were extremely content to visit such a museum at 11pm absolutely by ourselves and to do there almost everything we wanted! :)

and here are some pics from our "night at the museum' :) sorry, if there are too many…

In Ladytaksa's photo you see Princess Tatiana Alexandrovna Yusupova, however I'm not sure who the woman in the court dress is. Is it Tatiana in court dress? Or possibly one of her daughter's Zenaida or Tatiana in court dress?

I wondered if anyone has a list of all the Youssoupov Palaces in St Petersburg.  I know of the ones on Moika and  Liteyny Prospect, but I recently saw a map that showed the House of Actors on Nevsky Prospect (86, I believe) as a Youssoupov Palace.  Does anyone have a list of them all.  Even better, does anyone have pictures of them?

At the time of the revolution the Yusupovs had seven residences in Petersburg.

The most famous, the palace on Moika 94 was by far the largest in size, but it wasn´t the most expensive though.

The most expensive was the House in Nevsky 84-86 (I think because of its location), even when it was half the size of the Moika palace.

They had as well mansions on Liteiny 42, Baseinaya 5/5, Semenovsky 84-86, Pochtamskaya 92, and Litovsky 1/36.




Can someone interpret these streets - is Litovsky near the Litovsky (Lithuanian) Castle, i.e. near Xenia's Palace (or is it Ligovsky Prospekt?).

As far as I know, Pochtamtskaya only runs up to 20 (which is across the canal from the Moika Palace)

Also, does anyone know any addresses in St Petersburg for the family of Felix senior or his two brothers, Pavel (tennis champion) and Nikolai - members of the Sumarokov-Elston family?? I would be particularly interested in them!

One can see how little the interior changed over the years. The only noticable change being the portrait of Princess Youssoupova on the wall.
