A construction of the palace upon a project of E. Bushar began in 1881, but interrupted in 1882. From 1892 to 1902 the construction of the palace ensemble continued already upon the project of M. Mesmakher. The palace belonged to Alexander III, then to Nicholas II. With the establishment of Soviet power and until 1941, a sanatorium named “The Proletarian Health” was organized in there for the patients with tuberculosis. In the post-war years, the palace housed a state dacha where J. V. Stalin, N. S. Khrushchev, and L. I. Brezhnev were spending their vacations. A museum was opened in the palace in 1992.
