Created by the pressure of underground magma over 160 million years ago, Ayu-Dag (Medved-Gora) today represents one of the most picturesque spots in Crimea. Stretching across 5.5 sq km (2.1 sq mi) of the country's natural reserves, the mountain features slopes covered in thick oak forests, winding paths lined with plants, and rocky peaks overlooking the sea at an altitude of 572 m (1,877 ft). The site also conceals the remains of an early medieval settlement. Find the ruins covered in wild greenery and look for its ancient forts, homes, and temples. To visit Ayu-Dag (Medved-Gora) on your trip to Partenit, use our Partenit route tool .

  • The mountain we climb, but do not become bathed at the nearby beaches. If you walk further equipped beaches and reach the plates remaining from the Soviet era with these climbing frame for the descent into the sea, you will find crystal clear sea! And next, near the rocks, you can meet small crabs and other marine life. And of course everywhere views of bear mountain! It's beautiful!

  • Thought to conquer the mountain in the beginning of the campaign was not, as the child was with us and we were afraid that it would be difficult, but after listening to the guides, decided to risk and conquer the Ayu-Dag, than have no regret. Got a sea of emotions and excitement, energy and a lot of beautiful photos.

  • Certainly, it is a symbol of Artek and the Crimea. Beautiful views, both on the part of Partenit and Cape Karasan, and especially from Gurzuf.
