Venues visited: Livadia Palace, Dulber Palace, Swallow’s Nest Observation Platform


Visit Livadia Palace which was the summer residence of the last Russian Tsar Nicholas II and the venue of the Yalta Conference in February 1945. Then drive to Dulber Palace. En-route, make a photo stop to view the unique Swallow’s Nest Castle, hanging precipitously over the sea on a 38 meter high rock.

Crown your tour visiting one of the most beautiful and exclusive sanatoria, once used only by soviet leaders and top communist party members. It was, and remains, Dulber, the pure white building with silver cupolas, cogged walls, arched windows, blue ornamentation and multi-coloured mosaics. In Arabic, "Dulber" means “wonderful, magnificent”. In 1895-1897 Dulber Palace was constructed for Prince Peter N. Romanov after the design of N. Krasnov (architect of Livadia Palace). Dulber was the last place where the Romanovs stayed in the Crimea after February Revolution in 1918.

In 2005 Select Black Sea Ltd. created special exposition “Romanovs and their Last Refuge” inside the palace. Prince Dmitriy Romanovich Romanov (grandson of Great Duke Peter Nikolayevich Romanov, first owner of the palace) has already visited this photo gallery and you can too!
