"Yalta - Massandra" Massandra by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Massandra Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 74 photos

I've been to Yalta four times before this January: in 1967, 1972, 1973 and 1980. This city has become native and close to me since my youth. It's difficult to believe that Yalta is abroad Russia now...

We decided with my colleagues to spend our New Year-Christmas long holiday in Yalta in January of 2007. And I think we haven't mistaken! After 27 year of absence I saw a lot of new and attractive there, besides that I was happy to remind the places which I knew from early youth.

Our hotel was situated in Massandra. It's one of the most beautiful hotels in the Crimea since Soviet times. If you make a decision to come to Yalta - choose this hotel.

Only 20 minutes walk from the centre of Yalta and very developed tourist infrastructure makes this hotel very convenient for staying.

Welcome to the Crimea, welcome to Yalta, welcome to Massandra!

That was my trip in January of 2007
1) Simferopol',
2) Yalta,
3) Livadia,
4) Massandra,
5) Alupka,
6) Nikita,
7) Sevastopol'

    A very pleasant place to relax and enjoy the water. Great job of comments and pictures. How did the pics pass approval? I invite you to take a look at my last trip to 11 parks in Utah & Arizona in US. It was an adventure and scary in remote areas.

    Alexander's Palace is indeed very beautiful, inside and out. And what a lovely time of year to go there with all the Christmas shows and celebrations.

    Such a surprise to see how much things have changed in Massandra - nice to know the Palaces are open to everyone now

    It must be amazing to find that some things have not changed in 40 years while other have so much! At first sight, I was amazed to find that Alexander 3rd palace looked so French but found that you explained why, not pure chance! Great page!

    The Palace is my favorite in this part of Crimea. But I've never been inside. Thanks for sharing!
