In 1882, the Orthodox hierarchs donated to Prince Alexander Battenberg the lands on which the monasteries of St. Demetrius and St. Constantine were located. The successor to Prince Ferdinand decided to recreate the residence of the House of Orleans, destroyed during the siege Paris by the Prussian army. He ordered to subscribe from Paris fragments of the famous palace, after which he instructed Victor Rumpelmacher – Viennese architect - build them into the walls of the new palace.
In the Euxinograd garden, created by the famous gardener Edouard Andre, today there are more than 300 species of plants brought here from all over the world. The panorama of the garden is enlivened by statues made by mythological subjects.
