The palace was built for the last tsar, thouh his family had little chance to use it before tbe First World War started. One door is unusual as the crest of the tsar has survived in the surrounding stonework. It is the door you enter by. More interesting are the relics and pictures of the Yalta conference that took place here in 1945. The tour is interesting, and the grouns, with clear views of the Black Sea and of Yalta in the bay, are very well kept.
