The Massandra Palace of Emperor Alexander III is located in Upper Massandra on the slopes of a mountain range, surrounded by a park that turns into a forest. The construction of the palace, begun in the 1880s, was completed according to the project of M.E. Mesmakher in 1902. For many years, the palace, turned into a state dacha, was closed to the public. In 1991, the building and the adjacent part of the park were included in the Alupka State Palace and Park Museum-Reserve as its branch, and a year later they were opened for viewing. The Massandra Palace amazes not only with its unique architecture, harmoniously blending into the environment, but also with the originality of the beautiful interior decoration. The palace hosts a permanent exhibition "The Family of Alexander III".
