Palace of the Romanovs
There are constructions among the buildings in Tashkent that are not typical for the architectural traditions of this country, and at the same time, they succinctly fit into urban nature. This house was built in the late XIX century by the architects Geyntselman and Benoit. The architecture of the palace belongs to the modern art style, which was quite popular at that time. The main feature of this style is that all the corners of the building have rounded and smooth lines. Another feature of the construction is the harmonious combination of attractive appearance with a functional content. Their exquisite and excellent artistic performance had a special accent on the details.
The fate of the Romanov's house has been changed many times after the death of Prince Romanov. For a long time it was the Museum of Uzbekistan Arts, as the collection of paintings of European and Russian painting collected by the former owner was quite extensive and worthy of attention. Later there was a museum of antiques and jewelry art of Uzbekistan in the House of the Romanovs. After the Independance of Uzbekistan, the building was restored. It is currently used as the Reception House of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan. Unfortunately entering inside the bulding and admiring the interior is banned.
