    This beautiful palace houses the very best of Europe at the turn of the 20th century - Meissen porcelain, Oriental vases, Chippendale chairs and hunting guns. Each room shows a glimpse of the life of ...  more »

    The small Palace offers the sensation of being invited to the King in person, as he is rich or even touching personal memories.

    Don't expect luxury of Versailles and you enjoy this Palace. Furnishings, furniture, bedrooms, children's rooms. By the way, little kids in any palaces represented at all. And then there's several rooms of small knjazhon. Clothing, awards and portraits-all gathered harmoniously. At the entrance you can get booklet mini-guide in Russian. You can perfectly spend time on a hot summer day.

    Wonderful guide gave an excellent tour. House is filled with furniture family used, portraits, artwork, ceremonial items etc. It is small and easy to appreciate. Some of the furnishings are quite beautiful varied and unexpected. Definitely take a tour to understand the context.
