Yusupov Dacha Tsarskoe Selo
« on: January 14, 2008, 04:53:20 PM »
It is interesting to finally know the fate of the Yusupov dacha in Tsarskoe Selo. This article of December 2006 recaps the various restorations/changes that will be happening for the 2010 anniversary and states that the dacha has been restored by VEFK as a hotel:

Кроме отеля на 17-18 номеров, открытого Восточно-Европейской финансовой корпорацией (ВЕФК) на бывшей даче княгини Юсуповой в Отдельном парке, в планах инвесторов еще как минимум два гостинично-развлекательных комплекса.

Joanna, thank you for posting this interesting article.  I am very glad that this dacha was saved and restored. 

Maybe you can stay there on your visit this year?  At least you can visit and maybe take photographs.....

Everything you post on the AP is of great interest and I want to thank you.

Arleen, I have been trying to search using various terms for more information on the hotel but I am at a loss without knowing the actual name of the hotel. I did find where it was to open at the end of summer 2006 but whether it has or is delayed I do not know. For sure I will go to see when staying in Tsarskoe Selo! In 2006, high fences surrounded the property and was impossible to photograph except for the cottage on the avenue. Along with seeing the interior and taking photographs, I am hoping a booklet of the history of the dacha is available. Or if not, I will suggest the idea to publishers I will be meeting in StP!

A dacha is a second home in the country used for getaways.  They range from simple huts to palatial structures, such as the Yussupov dacha above.

The photo is in the Arkhangelskoye Museum:

Joanna

These are absolutely beautiful pictures!

Per above website this is what was to happen to the Dacha in 2015 "..New information is October 31, 2015 that the estate will pass to the Museum of AV Suvorov, who plans to open in the estate of Z. Yusupova Emigration Museum ..."

Does anyone know if this did take place and is it open as a museum or an office? Is it open to the public and to tourists?

Has anyone walked around the property? Are there gates at the front entrance? Is the dacha surrounded by a fence?

Are tourists allowed to walk around the property even if the building is closed?

Thanks so much
Cathy

A recent photo of the dacha:

http://cs616618.vk.me/v616618688/1b8b9/H8_OKzqxObA.jpg

And a peek inside October 2015 - "We first went to the palace with caution, considering that option to meet a vicious dog, guarding the mansion, very large.  But, luckily, there was no one there.
The mansion is impressive.  Even the doors and windows intact, in a perfect state of conservation of stucco and the least he looks like a pathetic ruin.  Only that much overgrown."
