The hallmark of the resort is a unique castle, built in 1893 by architect E. B. Khodzhaev commissioned Pyatigorsk merchant G. V. Alexandrov. By 1910 it already belonged to Rostov merchant M. O. Kulakov, and then it was sold to Baku oil producer M. Mukhtarov. Interestingly, this mansion is very similar to the Palace in Tiflis, built in 1893 by the St. Petersburg architect Pavel stern. Not only the layout of the building, but even minor architectural details Kislovodsk "Mukhtarov Palace" repeat the appearance of the Tiflis Palace. After the revolution, the castle existed as a house, and only in 1975 on the initiative of the pilot-cosmonaut Popovich and General designer of rocket technology guy Ilyich Severin was transferred to the pension "Star". Currently, the castle is under reconstruction, after which the guests of the city will be offered a unique in all respects "presidential Suite".
