After “a close edge” I left Sevastopol and went to the glorious city of Yalta.

Due to its compactness and location near the beautiful mountain, Yalta is extremely picturesque. In the streets of the city you can meet palm trees, which grow freely only on the south of Crimea, and this is just its southern tip. I firmly decided that the next time my “safe base” will be here.

The southern coast of the Crimea, in particular – the vicinity of Yalta, has always been a favorite place for the creative work of the Russian intelligentsia. They came here to improve their state of mind … and create masterpieces of the classics. Like them, I also felt the whole peculiarity of the coast, and my return to the Crimea will be imminent. Sometimes I think to leaving the profession of an engineer and settling here on the seashore, listening to the call of the gulls and wandering under the shade of cypress trees.

But if I stay in the Crimea, I will turn into a person who has ceased to notice the features of these places. Better to always come back again.

Not only I have chosen the south coast, the Russian tsars will confirm this with their residences. This is the Livadia Palace, the residence of Nicolas the Second, as well as the meeting place of Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill.

Almost all the neighboring towns of Yalta have a palace. Vorontsov Palace is a vivid example of New Moorish style.

In the vicinity of Yalta, I also visited a winery, one of the best in the Crimea. Of course, if you live in Moscow or anywhere else, you can buy French wine. But for me it is not sweeter.

The wine cellars are very pleasant after the hot sun, but only for a while.

After my steppes from homeland, the mountains seem to me inaccessible and distant.

But only at the top you can breathe with a full breast.

Of course, I did not have time to visit the whole Crimea for a couple of trips. Its size is very impressive, it is the size of Israel. I traveled to Crimea with certain goals, which I achieved. I did not need to look for and photograph bad things.

Crimea is your Yalta

“Crimea is yours”
