Do you have any information on this palace?

After the revolution it belonged to bolshevik government as so-called Rest home or sanatorium. Later it was used as a state dacha. During Yalta conference Stalin stayed there.
During Perestroika it was used as a private expensive hotel.
Now the place unfortunately belongs to the Ukrainian state security service and there is no access for tourist or anybody interested in history. How they use it- no idea. But I suppose they will ruin it as they already did to a lot of Crimea historical sites.
You can find a lot information through yandex.ru if you read in Russian.

There are pic's of the interiors reproduced in Ferrand's "Les Princes Youssoupoff". Koriez was where the Russian contingent stayed during the Yalta conference. The English were housed at Koriez & of course the Americans stayed at Livadia.

i was in the palace in 2001, after i gave a guard some money and showed him screensaves of my yusupov website. another nice guard showed me around, i made a lot of pictures lay on the bed of stalin. The interior is like it was during the stay of stalin, the whole interior was changed for him. Even a small cinema was created in the cellar with isome 12 chairs. The garden is kind of beautiful mess. The palace looked as it was not in use. I can tell you, very exciting to have been inside!

Is this the palace mentioned by Felix in his memoir? I can't recall but I believe he mentioned a residence there that the Romanov's preferred to theirs (I assume this was before they built the new palace at Livadia).

Post by: Valmont on November 09, 2006, 10:18:19 AM
You mean the IF?... I do not think the IF stayed at Koreiz ever...they had their own official palace before they built the one at Livadia, which was more of a private palace for it waas built wth their personal funds..
Title: Re: Koreiz,  the Yusupov palace in Crimea
Post by: JD on November 09, 2006, 12:14:38 PM
I don't mean that they stayed the night, but he talked of having the IF for dinner in the Crimea, & I believe he said they very much envied the palace.

Why would anyone other than the tsar need more than one palace in the Crimea?

Did families that owned multi palaces in the Crimea rent/lease out the extra palaces to plain old rich folks that wanted to hob-nob with Royalty or fringe Royalty?

Was the Crimea a destination resort like Cannes or Nice or Monaco?

One of the Yussupov palaces in the Crimea had been in the family for some time.The other came from Felix seniors' family.The Crimea was popular because of the pleasant climate,the beaches,the wonderful clifftop scenery,the privacy and freedom of movement that was possible because of its remoteness.The Tsar and his father before him enjoyed escaping there and prevented any development that would change the area.Robert Massie paints a vivid picture of the Crimea pp173-174 of Nicholas and Alexandra.

Among the villas that Yusupov had in Crimea, there were Koreiz comes from the legacy of Prince Felix.

But Kokoz "The Blue Eye", a villa was inspired by the Palace of Khans in Baktchissarai. The exterior was white and roof terrace, interior furniture style was Tartars, blue, red and bright green, and Oriental fabrics covered the walls and armchairs.

But it looks quite suited to the Crimea's entourage and nature around the mansion.

Well yes I suppose so, it looks as if the stone comes from the mountains behind, and the surroundings make up for what it lacks in architectural beauty !! I would really love to spend a summer on the coast of the Crimea. I hope the Ukrainians are sympathetic to these buildings, and respect the history of the area.

Well its now a hotel, so they would have wanted a more 'homey' affect. You can chose which rooms to stay in the 'Yusupov' apartments being the most expensive followed by the 'Stalin' apartments. I have to admit, I wouldn't mind staying in one of the apartments if only for night, just to be there and explore the surroundings.

Here is the front of Koreiz before the wings were added. Felix Yusupov did not exaggerate when he wrote in his memoirs that Koreiz underwent extensive and very expensive renovations over the years.
