Perched right on the edge of a rocky cliff above the ocean, Swallow's Nest stands as one of the region's (and Ukraine's) most popular sights and most recognizable symbols. Originally built in 1912 by a wealthy German, the "castle" boasts ornate Neo-Gothic architecture. Visit the manor house and take a peek over the railing at the 40 m (130 ft) drop that descends directly into the Black Sea. Wander the grounds to take advantage of the panoramic view (the interior of the building is off-limits). Keep in mind that the hike from the parking lot to the structure is a long one, so wear comfortable shoes.

Along the track you can always buy souvenirs, churchkhela, water. There are few parking spaces. The castle itself stands on top of a cliff in a very beautiful place. Inside there are often exhibitions, you can walk through several halls and see. The castle is small, 30 minutes is enough to inspect.
На авто вблизи припарковаться крайне сложно. Довольно далеко и тяжело идти пешком от парковки. В конце августа 2019 вход внутрь был закрыт. Ремонт. more »It is extremely difficult to park on a car near the road. It's quite far away and hard to walk from the parking lot. At the end of August 2019, the entrance was closed. Repair.
Famous Swallows nest, very well recommended for a visit if you never seen it. Quiet crowded touristic place. You can walk down to it from Livadia palace and take a boat from it to Yaltas seafront. Enjoy your trip and Crimea
Better by boat not by car
