Abram Steinholz was a doctor who treated diseases of the respiratory system, and his wife Leia was a dentist. At the beginning of the 20th century, they were receiving patients in the country, since doctors of the Jewish faith were allowed in the Russian Empire to live outside the Pale of Settlement. His patients were also celebrities: Ivan Poddubny and writer Jules Verne. Now the beautiful building is reconstructed for residents. An indoor swimming pool has been added, a park of relict plants and a children’s playground have been landscaped.
Tatarin writes a review: “Steinholtz’s dacha” was chosen as a result because in Yalta there are inflated prices, in Gurzuf there are many stairs, and in Sudak there were already ones. I was surprised that from Simferopol we got on an ordinary trolleybus. In general, all movements around the city: trolleybus and electric cars. Budget! I liked the identity of the city: many cafes, museums, oceanarium, parks, monuments, delicious seafood and fruits, free beaches for every taste. “
