Vorontsov Palace - Alupka Palace. Pictures.

Vorontsov Palace (also known as Alupka Palace) is situated in outskirts of Yalta at a small resort town Alupka. Mikhail Vorontsov was governor of the southern Russia (which included also the Crimean peninsula) in the early 19th century. Moorish elements and northern European styles of Alupka Palace blend seamlessly here to create a stunning villa. The staircase leads all the way to the Black sea and the lions that guard it are carved from imported Italian marble. Palace was built in five different architectural styles (actually different from each side) by British architect Edward Blore between 1828 to 1848. Now it is well kept museum with a small art gallery.
