Livadia Palace, Massandra Palace
Welcome to your private "tsar" tour in Yalta!
First we drive to Massandra Palace, designed in the style of Louis XIII for Prince Vorontsov, the palace was purchased for Alexander III of Russia in the end of 19th century. It resembles a castle-chalet with rich interior in English and French renaissance styles. During the Soviet period the place was known as "Stalin's Dacha". Now Massandra Palace and park is a museum complex
One the way to the next palace we make a photostop at the Swallow's Nest Castle built in 1912, standing on a picturesque rock above the Black Sea.
Then we visit Livadia Palace, the former summer residence of the Russian Tsars. In 1945 a historic summit of three anti-Hitler coalition member states: the USSR, the USA and Great Britain took place here.
An abundant choice of souvenirs and local crafts is offered for you in the souvenir shops on the ground floor of the palace.
Our day and the time we start the tour is flexible and is meant to accommodate your schedule and interests.
