Natalia, Sochi “Despite the fact that we live in a resort town, for the second time for a vacation we choose the Crimea, namely Gaspra. Hotel “Rubicon” also for the second time pleased us with high service at a fairly low price for the region. They were placed in the building “Morskaya”, which is closer to the sea stands. Just an amazing view from the room and a fabulously beautiful park area. We took a standard room, everything inside is new and stylish, furniture in calm colors. The staff helps with everything, does not bother when you do not need to. The quality of living is very important to us, because more than once we got into unpleasant stories, especially sorry for children in such cases. Everything is fine here, we are sure that we will return for the third time!”

Oleg, Moscow “When you come on vacation, especially to the south, you expect that it will be not only an ideal time at sea, but also a “belly holiday”, and we are very lucky in this regard. When you book a room in the hotel “Rubicon”, then the accommodation includes breakfast, very hearty and varied, everyone will eat. But we heard a lot about the local restaurant of Ukrainian cuisine, and decided to visit. I can say that we were not looking for anything else, we liked it so much. Of course, when we left for excursions, we ate where it turned out, but the restaurant “At the mother-in-law” really conquered us. Recommended”

Attractions Gaspra

Until the moment when the village appeared here, in the I – III centuries there was a fortress of Charax, built by the Romans. It was located on a mountain, and from it it was possible to inspect the whole district. This is how the fortress helped the Romans to defend themself and monitor the safety of trade routes in the Crimea. And at that time, merchants pulled their caravans, both by land and sea, constantly and actively. After a while, the Goths came here and destroyed the fortress, thereby displacing the Romans from their lands.

The village of Gaspra, which we know today, was formed only in the 18th century, people were engaged in agriculture and growing grapes. The land in these places was and is very fertile, agriculture brought income to all. Even representatives of wealthy families, including royal ones, chose Gaspra as a place for a long summer vacation.

In Soviet times, a lot of boarding houses and sanatoriums were built here, and now the village is multinational: Russians, Tatars, Greeks and Ukrainians live in it.

Swallow’s Nest

The most famous and visited place in Gaspra. It was built at the beginning of the last century by the architect Sherwood and looks like a knight’s castle of the Middle Ages. It stands very gracefully on the edge of Aurora Rock at an altitude of 40 m above sea level. They say the goddess Aurora herself loved to meet the dawn here.

Baron Steingel bought land here for his dacha, but it turned out, as we see, something else – a full-fledged castle. The name was given earlier and speaks of the miniature of the structure: its height is only 12 meters and it seems as if it is here – here it will fall into the sea. Now it is the emblem of Gaspra and a real symbol of the Crimea.

Solar Trail

It is also called “royal”, and this is the path from the village of Gaspra to the sanatorium “Livadia” and the palace of the same name. Along its length there are many viewing platforms to the most beautiful places in the south of the Crimea. There are sculptures, rare shrubs, exotic flowers and trees grow here. If you want to relax, you can sit on the benches made in different styles. Nicholas II once liked to walk along this beautiful path.

Rock Sail

Not far from the Swallow’s Nest stands the parus rock, and it was formed as a result of the earthquake of 1927 – part of the stone massif broke away and fell into the sea. The name is given not by chance, because in its shape it resembles a sail swinging in the waves. The best view of the Sail opens from the Swallow’s Nest or the observation deck at Cape Limen – Burun. Needless to say, in these places sunsets full of romance.

Lighthouse on Cape Ai-Todor

Even in ancient times, the Greeks from this cape gave signals to passing ships, this is a very convenient place. The rock with a height of 90 m above sea level provided a perfect view even at night. In the middle of the 19th century, Admiral Lazarev ordered to build a lighthouse on the rock, later it was reconstructed and used constantly. Surprisingly, the light from the lighthouse can be seen from 50 km.

The structure is surrounded by lush junipers, powerful oaks and pistachio trees. To visit the lighthouse now, you need to get permission in Sevastopol.

Charax Palace

One of the many dachas of the Romanovs in the Crimea. It was built by the architect Krasnov, the author of the Livadia Palace and alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Yalta itself. The main building was conceived in the style of the Scottish residence of hunters.

The gazebo by the sea was decorated with marble columns, a fountain was erected. In 1909, Nicholas II visited here with his family, and after the revolution the palace was given to a sanatorium. To this day, the building is perfectly preserved thanks to timely restoration.
