·        Livadia Palace

The Palace was a summer retreat of the last Russian tsar, Nicholas II, and his family in Livadiyia, Crimea. It was their second official residence.

The famous Yalta Conference was held here in 1945, when the palace housed the apartments of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and other members of the American delegation.

Today the palace is a museum, but sometimes it’s being used for international summits.

·        Swallow’s Nest

One of the most beautiful places in Crimea, Swallow's Nest, is located on a cliff Aurora (central ledge of Cape Ai-Todor) and attracts many tourists from different countries. 

It is Crimea’s symbol, looks as a nest overhanging the coast between Miskhor and Livadia, crowning a 38-meter cliff.

·        Vorontsov Palace and Park

Alupkinsky Palace and Park Museum-Reserve, also known as Vorontsov Palace, built in the first half of the 19th century, at the foot of Mount Ai-Petri.

The first owner of the magnificent palace was Count Mikhail Vorontsov. 

There are 150 rooms, including luxury parade, with antique furniture, paintings & antique statues adorning the winter garden. 

The palace, surrounded by cypresses and magnolias, clearly silhouetted against the Crimean Mountains, crowned the summit of Ai-Petri.

Vorontsov Palace Park is a beautiful monument of landscape art, founded about 200 years ago, which has more than 200 species of trees and shrubs from around the world.

There are more than 300 different kinds of plants growing in the park today. Most of them were brought from all over the world. One of the most interesting objects is the ancient olive grove.
