This was clearly once a magnificent palace. We were impressed by the beautiful ballroom and the collection of Chinese and Japanese porcelain. There are a number of peacocks outside the palace.

It is worth visiting although you can see better elsewhere. The style of the building is more European and there are some nice interior decorations.

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.

Located 10 minutes drive from the city centre. Awesome interior and exterior!! Too bad there were some renovation works in progress. There's a small coffee shop too.

Totally different to much of what Bukhara has to offer. Old summer palace of the emirs, sympathetically restored for the most part, with sumptuous interiors complete with furniture. Don't miss the white harem building and next door folly, two wooden towers linked by a bridge....More
