Black and white photograph entitled 'Doolbare [sic]'. The photograph, taken from a high vantage point, shows Dulber Palace, the residence of H. I. H. Grand Duke Peter Nikolaievitch, with mountains in the background. Taken by Herbert Galloway Stewart near Koreiz in The Crimea, in January 1916.

From page 19 of snapshot album number 17 of the Russian Imperial Royal Family, compiled by Herbert Galloway Stewart (1866-1960).

Dulber Palace, designed by Nikolay Krasno, was built between 1895 and 1897 on the outskirts of Yalta beneath the Crimean mountains. The asymmetric design with turrets and silver cupolas was inspired by the Middle Eastern architecture. It was built on multiple levels at different heights to fit the mountainous Crimean landscape with more than 100 rooms and terraces.
