Riding the cable car: The cable car "Miskhor - Ai-Petri" is one of the most popular and most visited tourist facilities in Crimea for visitors from around the world, as well as for local residents. The trip leaves a lasting impression - in less than 15 minutes you ascend to an altitude of 1153 meters, offering stunning views of the southern coast of Crimea.
We will walk-climb to the top of the mountain. It takes about 15 minutes from the plateau.
Ai-Petri is famous for its rock formations, called "white teeth". They bring an array of a line from Cape Ai-Todor to the sea. The teeth of Ai-Petri are peaks of varying heights.
The height of mount Ai-Petri is 1234 meters above sea level. The array is covered with snow from the beginning of December until spring.
From the top of the mount, you can see the horizon line of the sea at a distance of 135 kilometers, panoramic views of Yalta, Cape Ai-Todor, Swallow’s Nest, Vorontsov Palace and resort destinations with mountain Simeiz and rocks Diva and Cat.
There are more than 300 caves on mount Ai-Petri’s plateau however only three of them are equipped to receive visitors– Geophysical cave, Yalta cave, and Three-eyes cave. We will visit two of them.

To finish the day, we are inviting you to our beautiful home for the real authentic Russian barbecue - “shashliki” paired with delicious Crimean Red wine and fresh seasonal vegetables.
The photo-stop on the Laspinsky pass will allow you to admire not only the extensive sea panorama, but also the reserved tracts of Laspi and Batiliman on the coast, where the Sevastopol zone of the Southern coast of Crimea begins.
Photo-stop at Foros Church of Christ’s Resurrection, which is one of the symbols of the South Coast
Temple of the Sun is a Crimean Stonehenge. Just like British, it’s origin is questionable. In XII century there was a Monastery of St. Elias built by the Greeks. The temple is long gone and destroyed. However, the location remains to be sacred and mysterious, and it has become a place of pilgrimage.
Located on the southern slope of the spur of Ai-petri massif. You will see the cave’s unique sinter decoration during a 50-minute tour. The cave is equipped with 270 meters long route going deep into the mountains and has five halls: Fireplace Hall, Dolphin Hall, Knight Hall and Organ Hall of Ghosts.
The Baidar Gate is a mountain pass in the Crimean Mountains connecting the Baidar Valley with the Black Sea coast. It is enclosed by Mount Chelebi and Mount Ckhu-Bair. The view is breathtaking.
Will stop on the way to take pictures. The views are amazing
The canyon’s maximum depth is 320 meters. The incredible view of a giant ravine opens up next to the valley canyon entrance near the left inflow of the Belbeck River. The opposite slopes get closer to each other as you move on. In the narrowest places the space between them does not exceed 3–5 meters. In 1947 it was declared a monument of nature now protected by the government.
We are going to see the evening Yalta.
The city is located on the site of an ancient Greek colony, founded by the Greek conquerors who were looking for a safe shore (γιαλός – yalos in Greek) on which to land.
We will take a walk on the boardwalk of Lenin, the central walking street of Yalta. It is the oldest street in the city, with amazing architecture, surrounded by palm trees, a string of restaurants, bars, cafes and a variety of attractions. Performances, carnivals and festivals are held here. Walking through it, you will plunge into the atmosphere of an endless festival, which lasts the entire holiday season.
It is one of the five tallest mountains on the peninsula (1500 meters high). Chatyr-Dag is famous for its peculiar caverns: numerous caves, mines, craters, and pits. Tourists and speleologists often compare Chatyr-Dag to Swiss cheese.
The cave is covering 60% of total Chatyr-Dag plateau area at 918 meters above the sea level. Speleologist who have been to the cave believe that it should be included in the top 5 most beautiful world’s caves.
More than 2.5 million year ago nature has created a unique maze of Red Caves, penetrating the thick of the mountains for 27kilometers. Today everyone can touch the pristine beauty of the underground world.
The real architectural pearl of the Black Sea coast is the church of St. Nicholas of Myra. The construction began in 2004.
