This palace was built for the Grand Duke Nikola .Konstantnovich Romanov in 1891 and is a one storey private residence.He was exiled by his parents to Tashkent in 1877 and lived in the city until his death in 1918..There are two imposing sculptures of dogs at the entrance of the building and bronze deer's on both sides of the entrance stars.At present this imposing historic structure is used as a reception house of Foreign affairs of Uzbekistan. A stand-out 19th century Bungalow building among the modern buildings in the vicinity.

You get a glimpse of the palace through the fence and that's all. The building is undergoing renovation and cannot be visited.

Sadly this attraction must be viewed from outside a fence and locked gates. The history and story about a member (Duke) of the Tsar's family came to make his home amid the more peaceful and religious people of Uzbekistan in an effort to change his wild ways, is a fascinating one. Also the story that in addition to having hunting horses in his stable he had giraffe and a Tiger is great.

A relatively modest palace for a Romanov but this could be as the Grand Prince was exiled to Tashkent. The building is elegant but now it is only used occasionally for government functions.

It was an impressive building from outside the fence and once the home of Grand Prince Nickolay of Russia, first cousin of the Tsar Nkiloay 2. He was banished to Tashkent because of various activities not favored by the Tsar. Some said he was crazy but he sure built a nice house.

Too bad you can't get inside. You can look at it for a few minutes and take some pictures, other then that, not that impressive. If it's on your way come take a look.

Take a look for a couple minutes, snap a photo. That's about all you can do. Too bad you can't go in.

When walking in the centre of Tashkent, by Independence Square, Amir Temur Square or the popular street Broadway one might also pass by the Palace of the Romanovs, a building like no other in Tashkent. At the moment one can only have a look at its exterior through an iron fence surrounding the park with many big trees around the grand house.

Constructed in 1889 by a member of the family of architects, the Benois, Russians of French descent, it is a gray-yellow brick palace with a lot of external decorations like turrets and openwork lattice. The man, who had given the orders for this building and who lived in here with his family until his death in 1918 was Grand Duke Nikolai Konstantinovich Romanov, grandson of czar Nicholas I.

That this member of the Romanov family spent a great part of his life in Russian Turkestan had not been his choice, but was due to his misbehaviour. In love with an American dancer he was accused of having stolen diamonds from his mother, thus being declared a 'persona non grata' in St.Petersburg.

In Tashkent he became a benefactor, doing a lot of good work, also founding several enterprises. After his death the palace was turned into a museum, then a 'Soviet Palace of the Pioneers', last a Reception House for Uzbekistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Now it is awaiting a new purpose.

Really besutiful,historic building, the home of the Romanovs.. Currently being restored, I'd love to come back and see it when it's finished and open for visitors.
Still worth a photo stop as it is a lovely building from the outside.
