Тропа Голицына, Крым Golitsyn

Golitsyn, also known as the Falcon trail, in our opinion, is the most interesting and the most famous landmark of the village Novyi Svet in Crimea. It's a mountain path near the village, carved on the slopes of mount Koba-Kaya (mountain eagle) in 1912 on the occasion of the visit of the Tsar Nicholas II by order of Prince Golitsyn.

Today the trail can walk anyone, the cost of $ 100. The entire route is 5.47 km and passes through the territory of the reserve "New Light". To overcome it will take 2 to 4 hours depending on your fitness level. By the way, any special preparations for a hike on the trail is not required, the walk is available to everyone, but you need to have the power and, preferably, water. Almost everywhere, there are fences and railings, but in some places caution should be exercised. Go off the trail is strictly prohibited, because it is a protected area.

During the walk offers wonderful views of the Bay and the village, including from the viewing platforms. Next, visitors arrive in the Golitsyn grotto (Pop grotto, grotto Chaliapin), a former cave monastery, and later Golitsyn used to keep wine and champagne, and even arranged pop of the evening. There is a legend that here was singing Chaliapin (hence the name) although actually it is a place never visited. Further along the shore of the Bay Bandit (aka Blue Bay) and the beach trail leads to Cape Kapchik, spectacular views of the Blue Bay and Imperial beach. Via the Cape of Kapchik passes Through grottothat connects the Blue of the Bay, but the passage through it closed after a tragic accident. The passage ends with a walk through juniper woods in the southern part of the village.

🕐 Working time: daytime

💵 Entrance fee / ticket price: fee is charged at the entrance to the trail, $ 100

🚶 How to get there: the trail starts almost from the village itself, to reach the entrance easily on foot (the entrance to the trail Golitsyn on the map). You can visit it independently just came to the entrance and bought tickets in the tour, during which you will talk in detail about all the objects and beauties of the route. Ends trail in the southern part of the village near the house of champagne wines "Noviy Svet". You can also do the route in the opposite direction, because the tickets are sold at both entrances/exits.

Hello Olga! We've done way children 5 and 7 years!!! on route 2 one-way, sat on the beach in a Fun, climbed up to the ruins of the fortress, and went back to the split in the route 2 and route 1 through the valley of Paradise and the peak of the space, but at the very top of the Guard Both climbed. For everything from car Parking next to the winery and back to her took no more than 6 hours. And it's with children, which in places had almost to pull. So all other hands, even if you go with a truce and continually admire the beauty will take no more than 8 hours. ...

I'm so sorry that wasted your time and money on a New Light. We are in Yalta rested for the same money, but much cooler. Golitsin's path is inferior to Solar and especially Botkin. The beach smells really bad. Stayed at Vintage hotel, nice hotel, can not say anything, and the place is not very. In Yalta, stayed in SPA hotel Livadiysky, for the same money, delicious Breakfast, fall asleep to the sound of the surf, the price includes SPA. Walk to the Waterfront to take a 15 minute drive and there life is in full swing, and the concert hall are always some activities on the Waterfront. Don't waste time and money in the trash. Good luck to everyone! ...

Hello Anna! You should not compare these two resorts, they just stay different. That's why you have to read the descriptions as we have on the website, not to be mistaken with a choice before the trip. You just probably wanted a more cheerful and noisy sports, lots of entertainment, as in Yalta. And New Light as the village. There's just a very different kind of holiday, around the quiet, beauty and fresh air. ...

A long time was neither here nor there. But the walleye love for more correct to say - movement. And New Light and pike beautiful visually, but in a New Light this beauty hides nothing, neither the crowd nor the house nor the street. For me the best is to leave the children with grandma in Sudak when you want silence, and to guide the foot in the direction of the New world - 2 hours only. Next summer will be there, already paid for the apartment on the website-Twill - look forward to Hiking with his wife. And, Yes, my children only sand, so the choice is obvious, without a Perch to rest not glued :roll: ...

Yalta and the New world - the resorts are very different. In Yalta action, a lot of people and bustle. We had a rest in Alushta and Yalta, trains and other places, but nothing like a New Light for yourself is not found. In General, this resort is more expensive than similar hotels in other areas of the South coast, but it's worth it. Ranging from beauty Bay and mozzevelovaya groves and ending source of fresh air - everything is unique. We at night always turned off the air conditioning and opened the Windows to breathe this healing air. Yes, a quiet, calm environment without noise of discos at night, very conducive to family recreation. And the daily walk before Breakfast along the trail Golitsyn diving from the cliffs - unforgettable. Bay with a gently sloping bottom and a gradual decrease of depth very convenient for bathing with children. Best places for a family holiday we don't know. For August already booked a hotel in a New Light. Stay there not for the first time. Very happy, though not without shortcomings of course. Looked Vintage, it is more expensive, but the area we liked the smaller. And in the New Light, the rooms that are already renovated to a very high level. repair and and furniture, and the service too. We like. ...

Questionable fun, concerts, second-rate pop foursikov the crowd of onlookers - we need those who in his city or village with this tight.
And after the big cities, especially such as Moscow - the peace and quietness of the villages of the New type Light or foros is what we need!
Although in the same nanosecond cafes-restaurants-hotels many times more than in the above foros. ...
