Located on the Southern Coast of Crimea, Yalta is spectacularly surrounded by the Crimean Mountains with the peak of Mt. Ai-Petri (St. Peter) towering above. The scent of pine forests and sea breezes is famous for its curable properties.
For centuries it has attracted millions of people with its mild climate, stunning natural surroundings, warm sea, and relaxed atmosphere. Yalta was historically a crossroads of different cultures — from the ancient Tauri, Huns, and Scythians, to the Greeks and Tartars, Russians and Ukrainians. The delightful climate and diverse history provide guests with opportunities of both sea-and-sun relaxation and extensive sightseeing. Visitors can choose to roam palaces of Emperors and noblemen from a previous age, taste noble wines at world-renowned wineries, stroll through exotic botanical gardens, discover history at numerous museums, or simply do nothing but relax and enjoy their marvelous surroundings on the waterfront or in one of the many parks.
Yalta is famous worldwide as the venue of the Crimea Conference 1945, which brought together three leaders – Josef Stalin, Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt – to decide the fate of post-war Europe.
