Romanov Secrets Tour

During this tour we will focus on the mysterious and enigmatic stories from the Romanov royal family member's history. Most of the stops will be at the main squares of the city where the monuments of the Russian emperors and empresses are located and most of stories will be connected with the secrets of their marriages, coups de etat, births and deaths. You will learn about the people who, thanks to the secrets of their lives, have been named the "Russian Iron Mask", the "Russian Hamlet" and "the Sphinx who took his secret to the grave".

We will visit the Menshikov Palace, the Peter and Paul Cathedral, the Mikhailovsky (St.Michael's) Castle, The Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood and the Yussupov Palace.

At the Yusupoff Palace we will see the room where Rasputin was murdered. A large part of the tour will be dedicated to the secret of this Siberian peasant whom the Russian Empress called "Our Friend" and to the relations between him and the family of the last Russian emperor.
