The palace was built during the heyday of art and culture in Montenegro, after the conclusion of peace with Turkey in 1892. The construction of the palace lasted from 1863 to 1867. Initially, it looked like a simple two-story building, with a terrace under the roof on the second floor. In 1871, two wings were added to the building, and on the fiftieth anniversary of the reign of Nicholas I, in 1910, the palace acquired the form in which we see it now.
The furnishings of the palace exactly copy the original interior that meets all the requirements of the royal family and its guests. The design of the palace is made in the Art Nouveau style, which is characterized by a mass of decorative details, floral patterns, complex forms in decoration.
