Yalta Travel Guide: 235 reviews and 670 photos

I came here with a friend and we travelled by minibus from Simferopol and looked for accomodation on arrival.

I didn?t really know what to make of Yalta. Since I was there in May before it was fully packed I think I saw and felt an entirely different atmosphere then in summer peak season.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Holiday atmosphere
  • Cons:packed in summer
  • In a nutshell:Visit off season like May!

    Great page on Yalta, Do you think you could have a proper vacation there? To be able to spend a week there? Sunbathe? or is it more of a city break vacation?

    great infos and lovely pics bringing back great memories ! I have seen Yalta in communiste times as part of CCCP - it used to be the only CCCP-port we came to, where people were smiling in the streets...

    Another excellent page, Sonja! So glad that you have picked up building pages again!!! That hotel would have been a no-no for me: two pages to be filled out in Russian..... oh boy!

    Great page about a place where I havn't been 25 years but where I should appear in 10 days! You reminded me the Crimea sights which I love from my childhood and looking forward to watch again... Thanks for sharing Sonja!

    Fabulous little page. Did I tell you that the Ukraine and especially Yalta is listed very high on my "must-visit-list". :-)

    Ja, die Krim steht auch noch auf meiner Liste... Vielleicht Mai 2007?
