The rest chose to 2018 in the Crimea. Long thought, in what city or village to go, which hotel or hotel to choose, read many reviews, listened to the advice of friends and decided to stay at a wonderful place called the Utes at the hotel Santa Barbara 3**. I want to say, earlier, was vacationing abroad - Turkey, Egypt, Italy, Spain, in the Crimea, in Yalta, Alushta, Gurzuf, traveled on tours the whole of Crimea, but such a heavenly place not seen anywhere else. The village itself attracts with its beauty and atypical. The Utes near Alushta, in my opinion, even, is the town of Alushta to Yalta 30 minutes, i.e. convenient location, You will be able to get in the direction of Alushta is very fast, and in the direction of Yalta. A tiny village located on the mountain attracts with its coziness, little Italy. Who would have thought that in Crimea exists???)))

A lot of stalactites and stalagmites, but most of all struck by a huge landslide hall, the size of the imagination. In General, if you want unforgettable memories and beautiful unusual photos - the Marble cave - the very place. ...
