The palace of Grand Duke Peter Nicolaievich of Russia, known as Dulber (dülber is Crimean Tatar for "beautiful", originally from Persian, del-bar, "heart-stealing", "beloved, beautiful")), is an asymmetrical architectural extravanganza with crenellated walls, silver domes, and more than 100 rooms, inspired by the Mameluk architecture of 15th-century Cairo. This palace was built between 1895 and 1897.
