"Sky! Forever in the battle you and in the fight with me
For others you are a balm, for me the illness is evil.
I lived a long time, I wanted to reconcile with you,
All in vain! “You go to war with me again!”

Omar Khayyam.

In 1868, Russian Emperor Alexander II declared war on Bukhara Amir Muzaffar Khan (1860-1858). The defeat of Bukhara led to the establishment of a protectorate of Russia, which crossed the north-eastern Bukhara lands, including Samarkand.
In turn, Russia helped to restore the power of the amir over the regions of Shakhrisabz, Kitab, Hisar and Kulyab. Under Amir Abdullahad (1885 - 1910), the tsarist troops occupied the Afghan-Bukhara border, and Bukhara entered the Russian customs line.
The reign of the last amir Alim Khan (1910 – 1920) coincided with the First World War and the revolution in Russia. In 1888, near Bukhara, at the terminal station of the railway connecting the Amirati with the Caspian Sea, the settlement of New Bukhara was founded (since 1935 - Kagan).
In 1905, the railway reached Orenburg, linking the Amirat with the center of Russia. New Bukhara has become the main Russian center in Bukhara territory. In 1895 - 1903 there, on the initiative of Amir Abdullahad, a palace was built, where they planned to receive Emperor Nicholas II.
In Soviet times, a museum of railway workers was housed in this Kagan palace.
