Hey, is this building the place where did they do a scene of the Russian movie "Romanovy" ? Or it looks like it! Thanks for sharing!  :)

I saw the movie yesterday to see if it was the same staircas. I think not, the railing is different. Any may this type of constructions is very common thoughaut the ancient area of San Petersburg.
Glad you liked the pictures, I did this summer during my visit to this wonderful city. It was a coincidence that the door was open, and climb up the floor was very exciting.

Is it consider a historical landmark? Like they do in the USA?

Actually, Rasputin's flat faces inward... it doesn't overlook Gorokhovaya.
While having walked by Gorokhovaya 64 (it was Dzerzhinskogo then) innumerous times, I've never been inside. My description was based on a few current Russian web sources.  


It was known as Dzerzhinskogo only during the Soviet era, right? (I'm assuming since Dzerzhinski was a Bolshevik.) Was the name of the street Gorokhovaya before the revolution?

I think it has always been Gorohovskaya, but I know after 1918, many names of streets were renamed.

in the middle of  the 18 century this route was named as Admiralteyskaya road.
since the second half of 18 century it was called Gorokhovaya after a german merchant Garrah (in russian it sounds like Goroh) who had his own store there. that shop became very popular among inhabitants.
After revolutin Gorokhovaya turned into Komissarskaya and then Dzerzhinskaya.

Dear mike
thanks for this very interesting informations. Im so happy that I discovered this forum and people like you. I will be glad to know Rasputini's family tree and history of his family after revolution.
Best regards Mat_from_Poland

if you want to know more things about what hapened to their family and how was the apartemente you should bought "Rasputine's Daugter" book by Robert Alexander.


But you can see the topic "Rasputine and their sons (Maria, Varvara and the boy).

Maria left descendants that live around Paris, Varvara aparently died around '60 in St. petersburg and the boy died by a fatal disease in Siberia in the Sovietic Union time at a concentration camp.
