Palace of the Emir of Bukhara in Yalta
An architectural monument of the beginning of XX century – the former palace of the Emir of Bukhara in Yalta – was built in 1907-1911. Author of the project, Tarasov, used plastic techniques and decorative elements of Muslim architecture of North Africa.
The two-storey building is characterized by asymmetrical composition, combination of rectangular, faceted and semicircular volumes, porticoes and terraces, loggias and gazebos.
Fretwork of columns with exquisite capitals, balustrades, windows and frames of horseshoe windows and toothed parapet above the cornice looks smart on the backgrounds of white stone walls.
