The setting of the exhibition, Princess Zinaida Yusupova Palace, harbours mysteries and stories about its historical owner… A charming and intelligent woman, Zinaida was the one about whom they say «born with a silver spoon in her mouth.” She was born in one of the richest families in Russia, she had loving parents, married her beloved one at the age of 20 to get a loving husband and then two sons ... Princess Zinaida Nikolaevna Yusupova (September 20 (October 2) 1861, St. Petersburg, Russian Empire -November 24, 1939, Paris, France) was the richest Russian heiress of her time, the last in the Yusupov family, a major philanthropist ... She was the last owner of the Arkhangelskoe Estate near Moscow before nationalization. More than that, she was the Dame of the Bavarian Order of Theresa (1880).
Yes, that's all true. However, this rich and famous lady had many challenges fallen for her lot. It was not without mysticis and tragic events here and there .
There was allegedly this curse of the Yusupovs: of all those born in the same generation of the family,only one child would live up to the age of 26 and it would continue until the entire family dies out ...

That is a glimpse into the story of this mysterious Yusupova Palace where the exhibition is taking place.
When: October 29 - November 1, 2020
Open hours: 11 am to 8 pm
Where: Princess Yusupova Palace at the address 42, Liteiny Avenue, Saint Petersburg.
