Shah’s Palace


The building was erected in the English Gothic style by architect F.Gonsiorovskiy in 1852 for Polish noble Z.Brzozowski. This family had owned the palace until 1910 when another Polish noble bought it, Count Schenbeck. He rented it to Mohammad Ali Shah Qajar, the deposed Shah of Persia.

In the USSR, the palace was a public building. It was not taken good care of, and after the collapse of the Soviet Union it became decrepit. It was rented to a bank and renovated.

The exterior of the palace has not changed much. Unfortunately though, the interior has been nearly completely lost except for the entrance hall and the front stairs.

Figuratively, the palace is a counterbalance to Vorontsov’s palace located on the opposite bank of the ravine. One can walk there on a pedestrian bridge.
