This is one of my favorite place for rest and walks, this wonderful old Alupkinsky park, on Southern coast of Crimea, near Yalta / Ukraine/. The unique combination of the pure coniferous, sea and mountain air, creates the magnificent dry, warm, soft climate, which very useful to health and wonderful for rest. This known as Alupkinsky park, Vorontsovsky park , the monument of landscape gardening art, is based in first half of XIX-th century under the direction of German gardener Charles Kebaha. The park area nearby 40 hectare. In its territory is about 200 kinds, versions and garden forms of exotic trees and bushes. The set of plants of the countries of the Mediterranean, Northern and the South America, East Asia is acclimatised. In park grow a magnolia, a plane tree east, an oak pith, a pine Italian, an araucaria Chilean, a guelder-rose evergreen, palm trees, laurels, cypresses, olives and very much other . The park is in landscape (landscape style) which does not deform, and supplements the nature, by an amphitheatre principle (in which basis «the Tea small house» on seacoast ). To the coastal highways, the park shares on Top and Bottom. I love such beautiful landscapes, they are created by the nature and skill of old gardeners and architects.
