Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 550 reviews on the web
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. Put Swallow's Nest into our Gaspra itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Famous place of Crimea, you must visit. The best option by speedboat from Yalta into. Get ready for liftoff on a long staircase.

  • Little castle on the top of the cliff above the sea. Road walking with altitudes minutes at 15-30. Beautiful views, visit once worth.

  • After 15 years, that has changed. The territory of the airport. True territory captured Bay Beach hotel. But before you can take a dip in the clear waters of the Bay. Pleasure boat also comes from Yalta. And walk about 1.5 km along steep stairs-1200 found. Beautiful views of the sea and the coast of rock which has a stove, crumbling, so what will happen next to the castle is not clear. If stronger topnut′, feels jarring concrete slab. Next big market souvenirs and lots of seals. Poor Devils like they live in the winter.

  • I was there in 2009. It is really stunning. I don't intend to return there in the future. I want to remember that place as Ukrainian !!!!
  • Visit in 2007 cool place
  • Beautiful place - good for pictures!
  • Extremly interesting and unique. Ideal tourist destination except I found all signage and coversations in Russian with no possibility of explanations I requested during my visit. Requires much more promotion for travellers
  • Amazing view
