This is one of rare places where you can see European architecture in Central Asia. While the interior is nothing compare to beautiful castles and palace in Europe, but it sure offers nice European flavor. A good change from all Uzbekistan style architectures.

Well worth a visit if you are a little jaded with Minarets Madrassas and Mosques. This former summer palace consists of numerous buildings in a European style with fancy interiors. My favourite is the Harem and pool complete with a separate viewing platform for the...More

The style of the palace may not be unique for some travelers but for Bukhara it is unique as it does not look like any other construction in city. The coffe shop in front of the harem is nice for sitting and admiring the beautiful...More
