Beschrijving

A wax museum set up in the basement of the Yusupov Palace revisits the fateful day, on 17 December 1916, when Prince Felix Yusupov and the young Russian nobles that were his accomplices assassinated the frightening Rasputin, a debauched monk and healer who was very influential at court. It was thought for many years that he had been poisoned before being drowned, but it would finally appear that he was killed by a single shot to the head by a British secret agent.
