My picture in the background of Gurzuf bay, the pier “Dacha Chekhova” (Chekhov’s Dacha) and rocks where it is located the summer house (dacha) of the famous Russian writer Anton Pavlovich Chekhov. In 1900 Chekhov purchased here a small tatar saklya (house) with a small piece of the shore where he wrote his famous plays “Three Sisters” and “Cherry Orchard”.
