ALUPKA TOUR

THE PALACE OF COUNT VORONTSOFF AT ALUPKA.

The tour lasts 7 hours.

  • The South Coast of the Crimea is the abundance of palaces and parks. The palace of Count Vorontsoff at Alupka is an architectural splendor of the beginning of the 19th century where the Oriental and Western architectural styles meet and make the unified harmony of lines, proportions and colour with surrounding nature. The palace was designed by the English architect Edward Bloore for the governor-general of Novorossia Count Vorontsoff. The Count’s serfs were erecting this miracle of architecture for 20 years. The North side of the castle has a definite British aspect, its western wing resembles a medieval fortress, while its frontage facing South looks as a kind of a Moslem temple. The palace is surrounded by an English park, by far the best one on the South Coast where exoctic trees grow and cozy nooks and grottos were made for rest. During the Yalta Conference the Vorontsoff palace at Alupka became the residence of Sir Winston Churhill that is announced by a memorial plaque at the main entrance to the palace.
    • It’s possible to organize wine-tasting at the Alupka winery which is a part of the Massandra wine-making association. One can try 9 kinds of strong and sweet wines matured at the winery while listening to interesting stories about Crimean wines. Alupka winery is known for its Madeira and ports vintage wines.

Wine-tasting at the Alupka winery is available at certain hours and should be ordered in advance.
