Title: Two other former Palaces of the Yusupovs, St.Petersbourg

Antonio,
I should have known you would know the answer to my question. ┬áNow, do you by any chance have any pictures of the other palaces?  Especially the Nevsky palace which I believe is now the House of Actors.

Hi Antonio,

Is this photo from the Courtald Institute of Art of the Yussupov Palace on Nevsky? It is identified only as "Palace on the Nevskiy Prospekt" but it looks similar to your photo.

Many thanks

Joanna,
Yes comparing the two photos, it is the same palace.  I like the details in the URL you posted.
Now if we can only see a photo of Felix's grandmother's house at 42 Liteyny.  I have seen interior pictures in The Hidden Interiors, but I still would like to see the building itself.  It is currently used by the organization Znaniye (Knowledge),  and I wonder if anyone has a picture?

There is another Yusupov palace in Petersburg, in addition to those listed by Antonio: at 113, Fontanka, built by the same G. Quarenghi as the Alexander Palace. While is wasn't owned by the family after 1810 when it had been purchased by the state for the recently founded Institute of Road and Waterway Engineers, the palace and the adjacent nice small park  (http://www.pgups.ru/history/photogal_xx/photo3.htm)(accessible from Sadovaya St.) are still widely known as Yusupov Palace and Yusupov Garden.

[size=10]This palace is actually my alma mater: it used to house that exact department of the Leningrad Institute of Transport Engineering of which I'm a graduate.[/size]

I saw them mentioned in the book "Crime and Punishment", written in 1866. They were supposed to be somewhere near the Nevsky. I never saw them mentioned in the Nicholas II era, were they still there? Do they still exist? Pics?

How many palaces in all did the Yussupov family own in Russia and Europe at the time of the Revolution? Would these palaces have been owned by Felix's parents or were there residences that he could call his own?

I know that the family lived in a palace in Kursk when Felix was exiled and they had Koreiz in the Crimea. I think I read that they had a villa(?) in Biarritz(?) which they sold to Grand Duke Paul Alexandrovich and Princess Paley when they were exiled from Russia after their marriage.

The villa that was sold to Grand Duke Paul was on the Parc des Princes near the Bois De Boulogne in Paris.The only property the family owned outside Russia was the estate on the Swiss side of Lac Leman (Lake Geneva) that had been originally bought by Princess Zenaida's parents.It was tenanted.The family first mortgaged it, then sold it in the early days of their exile.All the property in Russia seems technically to have been Zenaida's except Koriez which had come to her husband from his own family and the 2 houses in St P and Moscow that had come to Felix from his great grandmother in 1897.The Litenia one was used during WW1 as a hospital.

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!

Apart from swiss villa , i believe there was also Belgravia Apartment in London which was retained from Felix's student days. The Paris house became school called College Doupanloup.

I am not sure if pictues of the Yousoupov Palace on the Fontanka  have been posted.  Anyway, here are a couple of photographs I took in October.  This lesser-known palace is located near the Fontanka on Sadovaya and Rimsky-Korsakov Streets in St. Peteresburg.  Interesting.

The most amazing thing is that palace is marked on the map of the city as a Yusupov's. In fact house was sold in 1810 by the family. That's why we have many curiosities on it. Many people and tourist buses goes to that fake route instead of  the museum-palace on the Moyka river (their real former residence).
