Ten interesting facts about the Dulber Palace in Crimea

ToThe eye can undoubtedly boast of a whole scattering of the most beautiful palace complexes and structures. There are actually a lot of them here. However, the Dulber Palace stands apart. This palace is a real Arabian fairy tale of Crimea, which has its own interesting history and secrets.

1) The palace was built a little hastily, in just two years. Its construction was associated with an acute shortage of funds. As a result, the architect replaced absolutely all expensive building materials with more budget-friendly counterparts. This also applies to finishing materials. However, this, in some way blasphemous, substitution, did not affect the feeling of "oriental luxury" that the Dulber Palace produces today.


    2) During the revolution of 1917, the Dulber Palace was transformed into a real fortress, where some members of the Romanov family spent their days during the civil war in Crimea. The powerful walls of the building reliably hid their inhabitants and really saved their lives.

    3) In difficult times for representatives of the Romanov dynasty, Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich, until the entry of German troops into the Crimea, acted as an assistant and consultant to a sailor named Zadorozhny. Zadorozhny was then a commissar of the Sevastopol Soviet and was responsible for the security of members of the royal family in the Crimea. The prince also helped him to establish the defense of the palace from the armed attacks of the anarchists.


      4) The inscription above the main entrance to the main building says that the palace complex is dedicated to hazrat - the Islamic clergy, and the name itself in Crimean Tatar (dülber) means charming or simply beautiful.

      5) Grand Duchess Milica Nikolaevna Chernogorskaya (Petrovich-Negosh), the wife of Grand Duke Peter Nikolaevich, for whom this palace was built, belonged to the family of the Montenegrin prince Nikolai Negosh. Known for being fond of mysticism and brought Grigory Rasputin closer to the royal court.

      6) As befits a real fairy-tale palace, Dulber has at its disposal a beautifully manicured old park where you can see the unique representatives of the Crimean flora. This is a real miniature botanical garden with a variety of sculptures, small ponds, gazebos, fountains and a whole range of rare trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants.

      7) The architect conceived the design of the palace in such a way that it would be perceived equally beautifully and aesthetically from any vantage point. Dulber is clearly dynamic, he will always find something to brag about from whatever place you admire him.

      8) The second palace building of the complex was built only at the end of the 30s of the XX century and was significantly damaged during the Second World War. However, thanks to the efforts of the Romanian and German prisoners of war, it was quickly restored and put into operation.

      9) From the beginning of the 20s of the XX century, the palace bore the name "Red Banner", at present it is, of course, the Dyulber sanatorium in the Crimea. And of course, it is far from the cheapest or budget, but it is never empty.

      10) Dyulber is an expensive health resort, a sanatorium with a wide range of activities, located on the cozy Southern Coast of Crimea. There are two pools with sea water, a beach with stable wi-fi, a fitness room, a tennis court and much more. It works year-round, and in summer the entrance to the territory is only with passes.


        Nowadays, the palace park has been restored, everything here is green, well-groomed and quite cultural. Lilies bloom in the pond. Of course, the main focus is the front facade of the palace. It’s something that needs to be examined from all sides and marveled at “who Rus' life was good."


          In general, the whole complex makes a rainbow impression. This is a kind of mini-attraction for which there is enough time and effort, when Vorontsovsky and other palaces are already familiar and examined for a long time, but if it’s for relaxation, then it’s simply incomparable ...
