Prince Romanov's residence in Tashkent

203


Great news — soon the residence of Prince Nikolai Romanov in the very center of Tashkent will be available for visiting and will turn into a museum.

The residence of Prince Romanov in Tashkent

The residence was built in 1891 in the Art Nouveau style. The prince was very much loved in Tashkent, because he paid a lot of attention to the residents of the capital. He contributed to the construction of the first cinema, a bakery, a small area for princely soldiers called sloboda and a network of irrigation canals. During his life in Tashkent, Nikolai Konstantinovich collected a unique collection of paintings by famous artists, antiques and books that he bequeathed to the city. Now the building is used as a Reception house of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan, but soon it is planned to open it to the public and open a museum.
