Route and content of the tour

What can you expect?

Oleg Shishkin is the author of the book The Last Secret of Rasputin and the forthcoming guidebook Rasputin Petersburg. This is the first book in the world written on the materials of a genuine criminal case about the murder of Rasputin, which was kept in the archives of the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Empire.

He plots a route not only along the biographical, but also on the conspiratorial, intimate, hedonistic tracks of Grigory Rasputin. These milestones will lead you to the sights of St. Petersburg associated with the life and death of this famous favorite of the royal family.

The closeness to the imperial couple lifted Rasputin to the crest of public interest and created an unprecedented excitement around his name. Having received all the attributes of a media personality, Grigory Efimovich became the main newsmaker of the Russian Empire.

But his high position made him the subject of close attention of the Security Department, the Palace Police and counterintelligence. Therefore, today we have materials that reveal the detailed topography of his routes, the names and addresses of the people with whom he communicated, the places he liked to visit, his tastes and erotic preferences. The excursion is based on these unique materials.

The tour of Rasputin St. Petersburg begins ... at the Pushkin Museum on the Moika Embankment 12. Amazing already? Yes, in this house there was once not only the apartment of the great Russian poet, but for a long time the "secret police" was located - the "Department for the Protection of Public Safety and Order in St. Petersburg", created in 1866.

Next you will visit:

  • Alexander Nevsky Lavra;
  • Beloselsky-Belozersky palace;
  • courtyards of Tolstoy's house on the Fontanka emb., 54 / Rubinstein st., 15-17.
  • apartment 20 in the house on Gorokhovaya st., 64 - the place of the last address of Rasputin, before his murder.

The tour program includes lunch at the Gymnasium restaurant on 21 Konnogvardeisky Boulevard, during which the tour will continue in the format of a conversation with an expert about the secrets of Rasputin's life and death and about the hidden pages of Russian history.
