Vorontsov Palace (Alupka)

Vorontsov Palace History

The Alupka Palace, built during the first half of the 19th century, has beautiful gardens, including more than 1 million plants.

Paths wind between huge boulders that fell from cliffs ages ago. The Alupka Vorontsov Palace completed in 1846 for Russian Anglophile Mikhail Vorontsov, once Imperial Ambassador to the Court of St. James.

Vorontsov Palace is a curious mix of English castle and Moorish fortress, which is considered one of the finest achievements of Russian architecture.

Clear, cold streams run through the rocks, spilling over in little waterfalls and forming ponds so pure and clear that the floating swans seem suspended in air. It was here, at Alupka, where Winston Churchill was hosted by Stalin during the Yalta conference.
