Cruise to the Black Sea’s Historic Resort City

The fresh salt air has been bringing visitors to sunny Yalta since the 1800s when the Russian aristocracy realized a good thing when they saw it. Intellectuals, artists, politicians, and eventually the proletariat soon followed in their footsteps, each leaving their unique mark.

Make like the locals when you get here and strut up and down the seafront promenade and the pedestrian zone along the Uchan-su River. Here, you can catch a cable car to the top of Darsan Hill to get a proper view of the beautiful bay and surrounding area. Back on low ground, stroll through the Nikita Botanical Garden, one of oldest scientific botanical gardens in the world. Lounge under the cherry blossoms and read some Tolstoy, or if Chekhov is more your thing, head to his former residence which has been turned into a museum. Both writers lived in and were inspired by Yalta during their careers.

Mosey on back to the beach, belly up to the bar at one of the many restaurants, and say “Bud’mo” (that’s cheers in Ukranian) over a glass of Crimean wine. The whole region is renowned for unique blends made from varietals like Aligoté, Muscat, Isabella, and Traminer (to name a few).
