Overlooking hills and meadows, Massandra Palace sits among lush English gardens, with its opulent ornamented facade and extravagant interior spaces. Originally created in 1889 as a hunting lodge for Tsar Alexander III, the building resembled a French chateau at the start. In later years, it became a holiday home of Joseph Stalin, who made it into one of Crimea's most elaborate structures. Walk along the landscaped gardens and explore hidden caves and alleys. Inside the mansion, tour the living quarters replete with antique mahogany furniture, marble fireplaces, and hallways featuring renowned paintings. A quaint cafe on the property offers a rich selection of local wines to taste. Our Massandra holiday planner makes visiting Massandra Palace and other Massandra attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The Palace is beautiful and with a façade and beautiful inside. They gave us a trâpočnye shoe covers and asked suit so as not to zataptyvat′ the floor is of course wonderful, just dress them. Almost everything is preserved in its original form since that time, we said the Guide and furniture and doors and even handles have not changed, all original. Some pictures are copy. As far as the wallpaper on the walls of their perekleili in the 80 's, I asked. During the war all palaces survived only because the Germans had hoped to win. Around the Palace shorn Laurel bushes. A large area in front of the Palace. Worth a look, we liked it. On site selling ice cream, gifts, magnets, small calendars with a picture of the Palace.

  • Began to build the Palace of Prince Vorontsov, construction under Alexander III was originally planned as a hunting lodge. Nicholas II not to instal in the Palace became the residence-prefer Livadia Palace. In fact the Palace turned out wonderful with postcards, surrounded by a beautiful park-garden. One of the 4 required to visit Crimean palaces (Vorontsov alupka, Livadia and Bakhchisarai)
