The palace with two pavilions was built in 1764 - 1766 in the classicism style with baroque elements according to the design of P.R. Nikitin . A common opinion about the authorship of M.F. Kazakova has no historical basis. [one]
The palace was intended to rest members of the imperial family on the way from St. Petersburg to Moscow, from where it got its name. On February 12, 1767, Empress Catherine II first arrived at the Tver Track Palace.
The palace was rebuilt by K. I. Rossi at the beginning of the 19th century . At this time, the sister of Alexander I , Ekaterina Pavlovna , who was married to the Tver Governor Georg Oldenburgsky , lived here. She turned the palace into one of the centers of social life in the country and a fashionable literary salon where the high society of Tver gathered and where many prominent people from Moscow and St. Petersburg came. N. M. Karamzin read to the emperor Alexander excerpts from his “History”.
In 1864, the palace was imperceptibly and subtly supplemented by A. I. Rezanov , who undertook another restructuring, this time in the “old style”, so it’s very difficult to distinguish it from the historical building of Nikitin.
In the building of the traveling palace worked the councils of workers and peasants' deputies, as well as the provincial executive committee. On October 28 (November 10), the revolutionary A.P. Vagzhanov announced the victory of the Soviet regime. In the fall of 1941, the building was partially destroyed by the Nazis, in 1942-1948. restored.
Currently, the Travel Palace has a regional art gallery . Since the late 1990s, the Travel Palace has been under reconstruction. Since August 2012 it is finally closed for restoration. In July 2015, restoration work was completed, the imperial garden is being restored  . In 2017, the palace opened in test mode - for organized excursion groups; from November 30, 2017 it is open for individual visitors and tourist groups  .
