Ялта

World War II history buffs will be eager to visit Yalta, a unique destination of historical importance located in southern Ukraine on the north coast of the Black Sea. Come ashore and visit Livadia Palace where Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin met in 1945 at the Yalta Conference to decide the future of Europe. If political affairs don’t float your boat, we have romance and art in store instead! A visit to the lovely ‘Swallow’s Nest’ turreted castle that hangs dramatically on a cliff top over the sea can still be enjoyed on the same tour. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE ROYAL YALTA

 

Цена: € 58 на възрастен, € 41 на дете

 

Duration: approx. 4 hours

 

Located on the Crimea peninsula in Ukraine, the resort town of Yalta is home to Livadia Palace – the White Palace. Not only was it the last vacation residence of the tsar, it also played host to Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin during the momentous 1945 Yalta Conference that went on to decide the future fate of Europe. The building itself is about 100 years old and also includes the royal family’s beautiful former private chapel. Next up is a photo stop at the turreted castle known as the Swallow’s Nest, so named due to its precarious position on the very edge of a dramatic 40-metre precipice overlooking the Black Sea. Built between 1911 and 1912, this Neo-Gothic castle is a true châteaux fantastique in every sense of the term. An enjoyable return journey then takes you back to the port.

 

 

 

THE HISTORIC YALTA

 

Цена: € 58 на възрастен, € 41 на дете

 

Duration: approx. 4 hours

 

A little inland from the port of Yalta on the Black Sea lies the town of Massandra, which was founded on the spot once occupied by an ancient Greek settlement. An interesting guided tour of the palace of Alexander III, the tsar of Russia in the late 19th century, then follows. The elegant Baroque palace was historically used to welcome the Russian Romanoff family. During the visit you can admire sumptuous décor, furniture, documents and photographs. The beautiful palace grounds are also open to visitors and certainly worth a look. A stop to take photographs will then be made at the castle called the Swallow’s Nest. The eyrie-like position of this turreted Neo-Gothic castle, which is approx. 100 years old, on the edge of a high cliff gave rise to the name and affords wonderful views of the Black Sea below. 

 

 

 

 

THE ARISTOCRATIC YALTA

Duration: approx. 4 hours

 

Your tour begins with a coach drive from the port of Yalta to the famous Neo-Gothic Swallow’s Nest castle near the spa town of Gaspra for a photo stop. The whimsical turreted castle was finished in 1912 and is perched precariously at the edge of a 40-metre cliff. The next stop on your tour is Alupka Palace near the seaside town of Alupka in southern Ukraine. Formerly known as Vorontsov Palace, the magnificent complex was completed in the mid-19th century. Designed by the same English architect involved in the design of Buckingham Palace, Alupka Palace features an English Tudor-style exterior and boasts a rich collection of paintings and sculptures. It was also the place that Winston Churchill and the British delegation stayed during the Yalta Conference in 1945. Your tour ends with your return to the port.
