Palace “Dulber” (which means “beautiful”), built in Koreiz for Grand Prince Peter Nikolayevich in 1895-1897 according to the project of Krasnov, is an asymmetric two-four-storey building, with more than a hundred rooms.
Volumes of different heights are crowned with toothed parapets and silvery domes. Carved stone inserts and mosaic compositions stand out on the white surface of the palace walls. Monuments of Arab Egypt of XV century were role models.
In particular, the front balcony of the palace resembles the entrance to the Cairo mosque-tomb of Kait-Bey.
