Overview Of The Port Of Yalta

About Yalta
Yalta is a resort city in Crimea, southern Ukraine, on the north coast of the Black Sea. The city is located on the site of an ancient Greek colony.

The area is surrounded by mountains on three sides, with beaches similar to those on the French Riviera. The beaches mainly consist of smooth pebbles, for a small entrance fee, you can gain access to a nice beach close to the Hotel Yalta.

The nearby mountains can be visited by cable car. Tartars who live here are willing to offer horse rides and hospitality. This offers a unique look into their culture.

Nikitsky Botanical Gardens, dating back to 1812, sits on a hill overlooking Yalta, and features a number of colourful, ornamental plants.

Armianski Tserka was built as a replica of St Hripsime Church in Armenia and has some elaborate carvings inside the church.

The author and playwright Anton Chekov's house is open to the public, and funds have been set up for its restoration.

Livadia Palace today houses a museum and is sometimes used for international summits. The Yalta Conference was held there in 1945, when the palace housed the apartments of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and other members of the American delegation.

Massandra Palace was used by the tsars and is located in a remote picturesque place, surrounded by forest and mountains, it is known for it's fanciful architecture, reminiscent of a fairy-tale castle.

Other attractions include the Palace of Bukhara Emir, Yalta's Zoo, the Aquarium and the park-museum Polyana Skazok (Glade of fairy-tales).

Popular local crafts include amber jewellery, lacquer and hand painted wooden boxes, Matryoshka dolls, embroidered clothing and linens. Many stores are cash only.

Local craft kiosks are also set up along the waterfront.

Caviar is a favourite local food to sample, other traditional Ukrainian dishes include 'varenyky' (dumplings stuffed with fillings such as potato and cheese), 'pyrizhky' (small potato filled buns baked in thickened rich cream and dill), 'holubtsi/holubchi' (cabbage rolls) and 'syrnyky' (cottage cheese fritters).
