Dulber is a palace by Nikolay Krasnov in Koreiz, near Yalta in Crimea. 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.
