Rocks of Cape Ai-Todor and the Blue Black Sea

View of rocks at the edge of “Limen-Burun”, the eastern spur of Cape Ai-Todor and a small rocky island called “Parus” (Sail), standing in front of it in the blue waters of the Black Sea. Limen (Liman) in Greek is a bay, a harbor cape. Here in the bay, there is a berth for pleasure boats and motor ships arriving to the famous castle “Swallow’s Nest” in Gaspra. In the photo you can see in the distance the silhouette of the famous Au-Dag Mountain (Mountain Bear), where the Gurzuf resort and the Artek International Children’s Camp are located.

Cliffs and Adalary Twin Rocks in the Chekhov Bay

Cliffs and Adalary Twin Rocks in the Chekhov Bay

The relief of the rocky coast of a small bay of Anton Chekhov in Gurzuf against the background of the famous twin rocks “Adalary”. In this bay, the famous Russian writer bought a small Tatar house (saklya) in late 1899, which became the place of his creative solitude. In a letter to his brother at the beginning of 1900, Anton Pavlovich describes his purchase: “A small bay with a beautiful view, its own cliffs, swimming, fishing, etc., etc.”

The twin cliffs Adalary is a visiting card of not only Gurzuf resort, the Southern coast of Crimea, but also the whole Crimea. The rocks are located some distance from the sea in front of the Artek International Children’s Center (the former famous pioneer camp in the USSR). On one of the cliffs, there is a tricolor, the national flag of Russia.
