Nikolai, Samara “Rested in the hotel “Tavrida” twice, and the second time we went purposefully – I really liked the atmosphere and interior. For us, it does not matter that there are no huge swimming pools, spa complexes and gyms, all – still came to the sea. It’s enough that we lived in beauty and visited a cool local restaurant. If you really want relaxation, then there are many other large coastal hotels nearby, there for a fee visit the spa and beauticians, but again everything is optional. “Tavrida” we loved for its uniqueness, thanks to the administration and staff”

Sights of Yalta

It is difficult to say where you need to go in Yalta in the first place. Sometimes it seems that the whole vacation is not enough to see everything. Come to the Crimea more often, and each time discover new places.

Armenian Church of St. Hripsime

This is a masterpiece of national architecture of the 20th century, built by the architect Ter – Mikelov. The painting of the external and internal facades was made by the Armenian painter Surenyants. Guests admire the frescoes on the dome, and the entire volume of the room is perfectly illuminated through the arched windows.

An interesting find of the architect is a false entrance to the temple, in the niche of the facade. During the Soviet era, there was a museum here, and only by 1988 the church was restored. Nowadays, it is open for services and tourists, and also serves as a platform for classical music concerts.

Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary

More than 100 years ago, this church was built at the request of local Catholics. Architect Krasnov worked on the project and erected the building according to all the canons of Western European architecture of the Middle Ages. The structure is simple, not pretentious, and the severity is given to it by shape and color.

In the 1980s, an organ was installed in the church, and now it pleases with its sound not only during masses, but also at concerts. By the way, they can be visited for free. Services in the church resumed only in 1993.

Yalta cable car

Yalta is famous for its cable car, and it would seem that this is special, but it is not. It runs right through the city, above the roofs of houses. Locals call it the “sky track”, it was built in 1967, and now it is a very popular place. The cable car stretches from the central embankment to the Darsan hill, and in 12 minutes the cabins pass 600 m.

This is a great opportunity to see Yalta in height, but be careful – in the booths you need to jump on the go.

Zoo “Skazka”

Yalta Zoo began with a small zoological corner in 1990, and after 5 years changing the owner, it turned into a very interesting place. Now more than 100 species of different animals live on its territory, and as a development of the zoo, the owner Oleg Zubkov separately opened the Taigan Lion Park.

“Fairy Tale” is the largest private zoo in Europe, where all animals live in natural conditions for themselves and delight with the appearance of offspring. This says a lot that they are warm, cozy and most importantly safe.

Livadia Palace

This is the former Crimean residence of the royal family, luxurious in beauty and grandeur. Architects Krasnov and Monighetti during the construction relied on the style of the Italian Neo-Renaissan, so the palace looks very light. The historical complex includes the palace itself, several buildings around and a park that is more than 160 years old.

Guests can see and visit the Holy Cross Church, the Page Building, the palace of Baron Fredericks. Surprisingly, the park preserves sculptures, gazebos and fountains from the time of the emperors. In the park of the Livadia Palace, the Royal Trail is read, and a sanatorium for cardiology is opened.

Swallow’s Nest

This place is a real visiting card of the Crimea, and it was built in 1912 by the architect Sherwood. Such an interesting name was called the Gothic castle on the spur of the rock. There used to be a park nearby that collapsed into the sea during the 1927 earthquake. In those days, the observation deck literally hung over the sea, but was not damaged.

Until the 1960s, there was a reading room of one of the sanatoriums, then the building was generally closed due to poor condition. Only by 2002 it was brought into proper shape and opened for tourists. Now there are art exhibitions.

Mountain peak Ai-Petri

One of the most beautiful mountains of the Crimea, with a height of 1234 meters, is very popular with vacationers. It is interesting to see its curly teeth and the unique color of the rocks.
